It was a hot and muggy long weekend. I did not do a lot but I did read Plum Sykes’ Oxford Girl. It is a short and brutally honest piece about her childhood and first semester at Oxford. One of the things I like about Plum is that she does not candy-coat her experiences. Even though she hails from a posh upper-crust British family, the money ran out (and so did her father). One’s life is not always what it seems.
