Author: Katie Crouch
Sarah Walters is a less-than-perfect debutante. She tries hard to follow the time-honored customs of the Charleston Camellia Society, as her mother and grandmother did, standing up straight in cotillion class and attending lectures about all the things that Camellias don't do.

I was not a huge fan of Girls in Trucks. I picked up it because it sounded really interesting. Unfortunately I found the writing to be rather weak. The story jumped around in time without any sort of rhyme or reason. The author would explore side stories with secondary characters, but they were never really fleshed out. I thought the side stories were rather out of place and pointless. Overall, the book just felt like a jumbled mess.

I didn't find much about this book to really like. The overall concept was interesting and had potential. The author is certainly very capable of writing an intensely interesting book. But I expect more from story.

Perhaps it is the aura of 'literature' that really makes this book lame. Or at least this author's vision of literary fiction. The abundance of hopelessness gets wearing. I didn't enjoy watching this 'good gir' make so many 'bad choices'. The book cover boasts the word 'charming....', this is anything but.

First off, the author herself narrates, which is a huge mistake. Her voice is quite annoying. Next, the story really doesn't have much of a plot. You basically hear about her life which focuses on her multiple boyfriends (and the sex they had) and what she smokes. A chapter or two here & there might have been ok, but 6 cd's worth? Oh how I disliked this book. I would not recommend it and definitely will never read anything by this author again. If I met her in person, I would tell her how awful of a writer she is.

Very strange book. Choppy sentences, etc. Skips around a lot and just kind of ends things abruptly and starts something new. Main character isn't that likeable, drinks a lot, smokes a lot, sleeps around a lot, a bit clueless, not even sure what she was doing or where she was going or wanted to go. A topic would be brought up and then resolved in a paragraph or two. Very hard to explain, but it was just overall an odd book.

This book was depressing. Lots of "F" bombs, drugs & drinking and an overall gloom. If this is pitched as real life...then maybe I'm sheltered. As someone that lives in the South...I don't usually run into people this sad. Enjoyed the style of writing and how the author moved from future to past. If you are reading this book to get a glimpse into Southern "Debs"...then pick another unless you like to read about nameless "one night stands" and alcoholics. One only truly enjoyed one chapter, "Bitsy's List" (think that's the name). I took me by surprise the way it was written but is so can't simply replace someone.

This was a beach read for me and it definitely fit the smutty/ brainless list.
