interesting book - not what i was expecting. then again, i don't know what i was really expecting.

southern debs sarah, annie, bitsy and charlotte meet in the camillia society and have a tie together no matter what happens. they go to different colleges, all meet a different fate. sarah is at times, hard to love, even like, but i do understand her, i think. and i liked her story, and i enjoyed the writing.

at times sarah is kind of condescending, she is afraid, stubborn, she is ridiculous and tiresome. but she has this spirit about her that makes her something more.

as much as she tries to escape her southern roots, they stay with her. even just as the metaphor her mother told her - keep all your pots boiling on all your burners.

i thought the ending was a weird mix - i was glad for it, because it's not the cheesy way out, but at the same time it was. so.

good, not great, but will definitely read the next book Katie Crouch comes out with.

(personally, i want a book from charlotte's perspective, but you know.)
