Description
Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body.  Alongside her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results.
