ADMISSION by Jean Hanff Korelitz (Spotlight/Giveaway)

To celebrate the movie adaption of Jean Hanff Korelitz’s ADMISSION which hits theaters March 22 wehave a great spotlight and giveaway for readers thanks to Grand Central Publishing! 
Directed by Oscar-nominated Paul Weitz, the film is based on Korelitz’s 2009 novel about 38-year-old Portia Nathan, an Admissions Officer at Princeton University with a settled domestic life and a rewarding, if sometimes punishing, career. The cast includes Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, and Lily Tomlin. 

About the book...

"Admissions. Admission. Aren't there two sides to the word? And two opposing sides...It's what we let in, but it's also what we let out." For years, 38-year-old Portia Nathan has avoided the past, hiding behind her busy (and sometimes punishing) career as a PrincetonUniversity admissions officer and her dependable domestic life. Her reluctance to confront the truth is suddenly overwhelmed by the resurfacing of a life-altering decision, and Portia is faced with an extraordinary test. Just as thousands of the nation's brightest students await her decision regarding their academic admission, so too must Portia decide whether to make her own ultimate admission.
Admission is at once a fascinating look at the complex college admissions process and an emotional examination of what happens when the secrets of the past return and shake a woman's life to its core.
