I recently read the notorius book by James Franco called "Palo Alto". It is a very disturbing picture of the lives of Palo Alto teens, I wonder whether it reflects some of what is going on in our high schools currently. I asked my neighbor's whose girl goes to Castilleja and she said that there is indeed a lot of bullying, cruelty, drugs, drinking, etc going on and she knows it only because she is very close with her daughter. She says you would never guess, because the girls she knows who drink at parties and smoke pot look "angelic", they are all very well mannered and have excellent grades...
