Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch

Sarah Walters is definitely not perfect. Although she was brought up under the influence of the Charleston Camellia Society - she is surely not the debutante that her mother hoped she would turn out to be.

Shortly after graduation she heads to a university up north and eventually makes her way to New York City - or, as far away from the South as possible. From there we are strung along through her relationships, career (or lack thereof), and friendships.

I can’t help it - I love books about dysfunctional girls and their troubles! A great read with laugh out loud details of the horrors of dating and discovering for yourself what really matters in life. I thoroughly enjoyed this series of stories-- the changes in point of view, the various writing styles, the way they all held together. I would not call it a novel as much as a collection of related stories. I loved all the characters (even through their many flaws) and found myself rooting for all of them. I found it to be engaging, well-written, and fresh. I would recommend it as a quick read, but with a little more substance than your average chick-lit novel.

NOTE: You are in still in time for the giveaway of 5 copies of Girls in Trucks that I was graciously provided by The Hachette Group. If you would like to sign-up for the giveaway, please click here. The 5 winners will be chosen 4/17/09.
