Girls In Trucks by Katie Crouch
Here we follow the story of Sarah Walters and her 3 closest friends, Bitsy, Charlotte, and Annie.
The story starts out with the four of them in a South Carolina Cotillion school and follows, mostly Sarah, into adulthood.
The four women battle drug addiction, adultery, low self esteem, cancer, and really bad choices in men.
Crouch uses different points of view throught the story giving different views into each woman's life, which was interesting. However, it seemed sometimes to me almost like a collection of short stories, which gave me a little trouble with the flow.
Sarah has a lot of wit, and I really liked her honesty, but I felt like I was missing something in her development as a character. I wanted to feel connected to her, I just didn't. I think that has more to do with me personally though than the book itself.
To be fair, it is a well told story that could have been very typical (4 women move from their home in the south to NYC) but it strays far from it. Almost a cautionary tale, if you will, of what young girls can face as they grow up and leave home.
Favorite Lines (There's a lot of quotable material in this one):"...I watched, hoping she wouldn't come out too broken. It's all you can do for people sometimes, no matter how much you love them. This is one of the many things I was only beginning to understand."
"Being unfaithful to yourself is not as hard as you'd think."
"It took us a while to shed our Southern ways, but after a few months we figured out that one's natural height should not be enhanced by one's bangs."
