Summary
Traces the author's undercover attendance at a California high school, where he participated in classes, befriended fellow students, and graduated in cap and gown as part of an effort to gauge the modern teen scene, an effort that was marked by young people from all walks of life, system apathy, and unchecked sexual and drug activities. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: It's spring semester in Southern California, and twenty-four-year-old Stanford grad Jeremy Iversen is forsaking a dreary future of New York investment banking to go on the adventure of a lifetime. With a new wardrobe and the blessing of the school principal, he transfers into Mirador High, going undercover as a seventeen-year-old surfer.

In this fast-paced exposé, Iversen quickly finds himself climbing the social ladder to the popular crowd, winning over everyone from steroid-raging athletes to shoplifting scene kids, promiscuous prom queens to evangelical Christians. Along the way, he uncovers a secret world of bomb threats and sex videotapes, wildfires and wilder parties, childish teachers and youth growing up way too fast.

But when he finds himself caught between his teenage friends and a jaded administration that will stop at nothing to make their failing school look good, he realizes he faces the hardest choice of his life.

High School Confidential is the explosive true story of a rising generation that proves you can go back again.
