63. Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch...

April 9, 2009
Girls in Trucks is the story of Sarah Walters, born into one of the oldest debutante societies in Charleston. Growing up includes weekly Cotillion dancing lessons, minding manners, and appropriate behavior, all overseen by the Camellias. When Sarah moves north for college, and later, a career, she finds that the lessons learned growing up, don't translate so well to the modern world.

Girls in Trucks chronicles Sarah's journey from southern belle to broken-hearted, lost soul. Parts of this book was difficult for me to read, if only because I'm sitting here going "C'mon, Sarah! Don't pick that door! Pick that one!" and "noooooooooooooooooo"... *sigh* There is redemption toward the end though. Sarah discovers the meaning of love, and discovers that she's had it all along.

This is not a feel-good, fluffy, warm-fuzzy, chick-lit read. But it's good anyway. Want your own copy? Check out my giveaway, or click on the cover to purchase from Amazon. =)

I'm always one of those yelling when characters make bad choices too. I COULD not bear to read Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith for just that reason.

Having lived most of my life in the South, this one sounds interesting to me. Quite often, our Sunday paper has pictures of Debs and I'm just amazed that that mindset still exists.

bermudaonion ~ That whole mindset is completely alien to me... Fun to read about, I guess, but like "whoa! they spend years learning to dance?"...
