This is an auction for THE NEW GIRL by Emily Perkins.

Amazon.com review:

"It is the beginning of the summer holidays in a town in the middle of nowhere. Julia and her best friends Chicky and Rachel are school leavers emerging from their girlhood and waiting for the future. They - and their parents - are excited when Miranda, a charismatic and exotically beautiful woman from the city, arrives to teach a summer class. Miranda encourages curiosity and independence among her charges, but she also casts a shadow: the lifelong bonds between the girls begin to dissipate; confidences are broken; Julia yearns for the city, for an escape from boys who drink beer and race stolen cars across the gravel down by the bridge. But Miranda has her own doubts and betrayals. She too is asking: when will I be found out? THE NEW GIRL is a novel about girls and the women who shape them; about influence, identity, individual freedom and group responsibility."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Emily Perkins was born in 1970. She is the author of Not Her Real Name, a collection of stories which won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and was shortlisted for the John Lewellyn Rhys Prize, and Leave Before You Go, a novel. She lives in London.
