The character development is not extensive, but anyone who has spent much time in the adademic world will have no trouble imagining the personalities. Even as a work of fiction, there are many things in this book that ring true to anyone who has spent time as a business school faculty member, pariticularly in earlier generations.
Kudos to the author for such an interesting first novel. Jul 29, Frankie Bow rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this, and am hoping for a sequel. The descriptions of the university, and some of the characters in it, were perfectly done.

Technically, I would give this 1. While the plot had potential, the writing was flat, the characters were superficial and the editing was terrible.

About the Project In the early hours of April 28, , Binland Lee headed up to her attic bedroom in the off-campus house she shared with 13 others. We produced a longform storytelling template to give readers an immersive reading experience. We layered images, videos, and animated gifs throughout the series. The visuals of the shoddy apartments and other atrocities hammered home the point in ways that words never could.
We wanted to bring readers as close as we could to the moment of that fatal fire. We strategically laid these elements throughout the story, allowing readers to not only read about the events, but to see them, hear them, and feel them as the tragedy unfolded.
Campus (“Shadow”) Visits and Tours
We produced a documentary video , relying heavily on first-hand interviews with students and in-the-field recordings of campus housing. We let the documents speak for themselves.
With each edition of the story, we published documents showing landlords skirting the law, violations going unfixed, and shadowy allegiances between scofflaw landlords and universities. We hit upon the heart of the problem through data. Our exhaustive analysis showed that acceptance rates at many universities had far outpaced student housing, in Boston and nationwide.

The discrepancy forces more and more students into shoddy off-campus housing each year. While the characters in our story were from Boston, our data showed the issue was occurring nationwide.

We understood one of our key audiences — college students — would access this project via social media. To reach them on the platforms of their choice, we created gifs, videos and other elements specifically for Facebook, Instagram , Vine , and other social platforms. As with everything we do on BostonGlobe.
