Alicia Deats is a new teacher chaperoning her very first high school trip to Washington DC, and nothing could be more terrifying than a class full of horny, backstabbing, boundary-pushing teenagers under her watch. To make matters worse, she embarrassed herself with her co-chaperone Bryan Kenner with one too many margaritas and an ill-placed vomiting incident at last year’s teacher mixer and is hoping this trip can be a fresh start for them.

Alicia believes in positive reinforcement and trust to keep her students out of trouble, but best friend high school sophomores Gertie, Sivan, and Rachel have a different idea: they plan to take full advantage of the un-parented freedom that a trip to DC offers.

DC TRIP by novelist-comedian Sara Benincasa is an honest and irreverent journey of sexual confusion, bar shots, drag queens, and pot cookies in the Rose Garden.

About the Author:

Sara Benincasa is an award-winning comedian and author of the books Great and Agorafabulous!: Dispatches From My Bedroom (William Morrow/HarperCollins), a book based on her critically acclaimed solo show about panic attacks and agoraphobia. Her comedy has won praise from the Chicago Tribune, CNN, The Guardian, and The New York Times.

Review:

“DC Trip is smart, funny, sexy, and sweet. Sara Benincasa has written a hilarious, big-hearted novel about an essential high school experience.” - Tom Perrotta, author of Election and Little Children

"At times ribald, mischievous, and gross, DC Trip is never cynical, and it even occasionally gently tweaks its own lefty identity politics. The book deserves to be counted among Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, King Dork, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower as...novels that have raised the...bar by not insulting their target audiences, while still feeling universally relevant enough to make a man in his late thirties laugh out loud while reading it on the New York City subway.” ―Reason.com

"The perfect, frothy blend of teen angst, adult drama, and whip-smart social commentary. This novel is a trip in every sense." - Diablo Cody, Academy Award Winning writer of JUNO, and author of Candy Girl.

"Sara Benincasa's D.C. Trip is as wicked, dirty, funny and surprisingly poignant as her comedy. It's a wild, hilarious, and very grown-up ride into the world of teenagers and the adults charged with their care. Read it and laugh your ass off." -- Jill Soloway, creator of Golden Globe-award winning series "Transparent"

“Benincasa...creates situations that are jarringly outlandish, but still believable enough to be hilarious...A breezy, charming novel." -- BUST Magazine

“Like a crazier Tina Fey.” - LA Weekly on Sara Benincasa

* STARRED REVIEW: “This is a light yet deep novel that looks at the intricacies of both high school cliques and adult relationships. A fantastic add to fiction collections, this would be a great YA crossover for older teens (profanity and sexual situations are dealt with very well).” – School Library Journal

"The hilarious Benincasa's second book will give you all the field trip feelings (which, let's face it, are some of the strongest feelings humans ever experience). The protagonist is a new teacher daunted by the wild high schoolers she's chaperoning in the nation's capital―among her charges are three sophomores full of the spunk and daring inspired by being away from home for the first time. " --Glamour Magazine

"DC Trip is the adult book about high school you never knew you needed.” --Playboy

"I’m an expert on the subject of girls, being married to one, having dated several, and now the father of a tween. As an expert, I can tell you with absolutely certainty that Sara Benincasa has being a young female down. She is hilarious and insightful and smart - all traits the ladies I love share, although DC Trip transcends gender. I read and loved it and I’m a BOY!!! (A very famous and attractive boy.)" -- Michael Ian Black, comedian
