What if your first position out of Yale University is nothing like you anticipated it being? Megan Smith has just graduated from Yale University. She thought she had already secured a position with a publishing company. She had graduated magna cum laude with a double major in English and American History. Her hopes are soon dashed by the editor in chief at the publisher, who tells her they just can't use her but she knows someone who can. How will she be using her talents, education and abilities?

Surely being a tutor to the very spoiled Baker girls has to some sort of a joke. Laurel Limoges has a plush estate in Palm Beach Florida. The only requirements has for Megan is to prepare her twin granddaughters for their SATs during her 2 months. Megan can use whatever vehicle she wants and has an unlimited expense account not to mention having the opportunity to live the life of a rich person. This presents a huge problem as neither Sage or Rose has any interest in studying but rather partying, shopping, and spending loads of money on their selfish selves.

Megan has a terrible sense of style and Rose and Sage decide to help her along in becoming up to date with styles. Megan's lack of style shows through in many humorous situations along the way. Rose, Sage and Megan must come to an agreement and somehow find a way to work together. The twins have an education to gain and Megan has a $75,000 bonus to pay off her college loans to attain.

From cover to cover you will find yourself laughing and being hooked to the entertaining storyline. The story is written much like Cinderella facing incredible odds of achieving success, financial gain and a handsome prince. To have a job teaching filthy rich girls and a plush place to live for 2 months may sound like a breeze but for Megan this is definitely more work than it is pleasure. "How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls" is a great book for anyone who likes a rags to riches story.
