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.

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

PLOT: Five ladies (Tiara, Chancy, Stephanie, Cajun, and Malena) embark on a journey to join the exclusive ladies in pink of Alpha Kappa Alpha (tho it isn't named I think we all can guess). Along the way each lady has her trials to overcome. But as they all become closer they discover that real sisterhood isn't just about wearing the color pink and sporting the letters.

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).

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

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.

For sure not the best book I've read or even the most engaging, but was able to relate to it.
Main characters were too dingy for my taste. Stopped reading after intro of main characters.
