Meet the dirty girls--Lauren, Sara, Amber, Elizabeth, Rebecca, and Usnavys--six friends whose mutual support and (mostly)admiration society sorts out and celebrates the complications and triumphs in each other's lives. No matter what happens to each of them (and a lot does), the Girls dish, dine, and compare notes on the bumpy course of life and love. There's always a lot of catching up to do.
This is an entertaining and inspiring book about the lives of 6 friends. The author gives each character depth, and though they are completely different from each other, they maintain their friendship through all of life's ups and downs. Excellent debut novel!
A book about six girls who meet in college and stay friends even many years later. They all have their hispanic heritage in common, even though they are different religions and different colors. This book explores their lives as they are today as well as stories from their pasts and how they have changed (or not) over the years since their college days.
I had a little trouble getting into the book becuase each chapter is written from a different character's point of view. But by the middle the book had my attention. The book is about a group of girls that met in College and still meet once a month years later.
My book club was to read this but this was the only one I couldn't finish. I just don't like this Chick Lit. stuff. However, it did get very good reviews and was only the New York Time Bestseller list.
Hilarious! This is the first novel by this wonderful writter. It's full of love, scandal, emotion, definately the type of book to share between girlfriends. Learn what a "Sucia" is really all about....
I had a hard time putting this book down, although I also had some character confusion in the beginning. I adored the characters in this book, who are richly textured and interesting. The relationships between the women are equally endearing. Just an all-around great book.
I had a hard time keeping myself interested for the first 100 pages. After that I was pretty well aquainted with the six charaters and had a entertaining time reading their story. It was truley a celebration of what a friendship should be, no matter how different ones lifestyle or personality. It was abmirable to see these girls with such different views stick together and pull eachother thought their hard patches of live. All in all a good read.
