A small, pleasant town in Northern NJ. Most of the high schoolers drink alcohol regularly and still maintain a pretty high GPA. The school gets great test scores and everyone goes to a nice college. The people are very shallow and apathetic. Although the girls think they are all that,most show up to school wearing sweatshirts and old UGGS, with washed out Hard Tails. Other definitions describe the people as good looking, but in reality very few are. The gossip is only about people who want to be gossiped about, and who do things over the weekend just so that on Monday people will be talking about them. Sports are really bad at the high school, except for boys lacrosse and swimming. Girls talk about other girls they hate, which is ironic because the reason they hate them is because they talk about people. Mountain Lakes has its own lingo like "legit", "obnoxious", "all out", "dominate", "beastly",and "def". Everyone knows everyone since they were born. Most people aren't actually that rich, only a few families are. The majority of families are upper middle class, which is still very nice. Mountain Lakes is really no different than any other town. You have your rich, your poor, the in between, the popular, the outcasts, the nerdy, and the Star Wars fans. The only difference is that for some reason everyone in Mountain Lakes thinks they are better than other people. Even people in the same town, which makes it very hard to find true and loyal friends.
"That girl really bugs me, all she does is talk about other people. I can't stand that. She is sooo shallow. Ooo, but I really like her designer tote, it's like 'def'awesome!
is very homogeneous. And creepy, unattractive people are considered all that.
