Quick, easy read. In the beginning it seemed like there were a lot of characters, but I was eventually able to keep them separate. The book wasn't too heavy and it didn't take me a long time to complete it. I enjoyed the characters' time with each other. I liked reading about them getting to know each other.
Just a fun and interesting read. I really enjoyed this book.

This is short. I think I'll give it a try.

This book changed my perception of sorority life and ultimately the author and I share some common ties.

This book was just O.K. I wouldn't recommend you to read it. It was about a bunch of college girls who become friends through their sorority pledge process. Each of them has a different background and a different story throughout the book. It wasn't earth shattering and was rather typical in my opinion. I wouldn't even recommend it as fun beach reading (which was what I was hoping for but without the beach).

Dragged in some places. Not the easiest book to read as if you take a break you then need to refer back to find out what a particular character was doing 3 chapters ago .

Pretty good book, these young ladies grew together in their friendship as they were pledging the sorority together.
Ericka Fluellen
the ups and downs of a young african woman finding her place through college and sorority life.
Main characters were too dingy for my taste. Stopped reading after intro of main characters.

For sure not the best book I've read or even the most engaging, but was able to relate to it.
