did not like it
bookshelves: major-disappointment

If I could give this book 1/2 a star, I would. OMG, it was HORRIBLE!!! I MADE myself read it for as long as I could thinking it was bound to get better. By the middle of the book, I was DONE! I flipped to the last chapter, read it and realized how thrilled I was that I hadn't wasted more time reading it all the way through. I could not connect with one single character....not one....I hated them all....I hated their lifestyle....I hated what they stood for (or better yet, what they didn't stand for)....I hated the superficial....and I hate reading books about people who waste their lives trying to act like they are something they aren't. Life isn't a game except to the type of people that this book illustrates and it just made me sick to my stomach. I have never been more happy or proud to be a middle class, southern girl in my entire life!!!!
