~Sisterhood Situation~

by Janette McCarthy Louard

Heroines: varied

          

          Four girls are muddling their way through their final year at Middlehurst college in Massachusetts: Brainy Harlem-based Reva, who is trying not to cut herself on the shards of her mother's shattered dreams.  Rich, has-it-all Opal, who doesn't know how good she's got it until it's nearly all gone.  Sweet, plump Precious who loves everyone but herself.  And sheltered Faith who is standing on a precipice and is at risk of throwing herself over the edge.

 

           All four girls have to juggle academics with friendship and the struggle to get out from under a parent's wing or shadow and discover who they are meant to be.  And along with finding herself, each young woman finds love--sometimes in the most unexpected places.

 

What worked for me:

                      

            I do enjoy reading book about gal pals, especially gals I'd love to have as friends of my own.  These particular characters sucked me into their lives so that I just kept on turning the pages to find out what would happen to them. 

 

           This novel was also filled with little bits of wisdom, one thought which struck me singularly hard I plan to store up for use with my own children one day: "I didn't raise you to fit in.  I raised you to set standards."

 

            Size-wise the girls ranged from sylphlike to plump (Once again I ignored the numbers assigned to the bigger girls and went with their descriptions when determining their size.)

 

What didn't work for me:

           

             The copy I read was an uncorrected proof, which made for some bumpy reading.  Hopefully those typos have been caught in the finished version of the book.

      

Overall:

              "Sisterhood Situation" is quick, enjoyable read for fans of women's fiction.

 

If you liked "Sisterhood Situation" you might also enjoy "The Way It Is", "What a Girl Wants", "The Saving Graces", "All of Me", "The Fat Friend", "Circle of Friends", "Tara Road", "Fast Women", "The High Price of a Good Man", or "Commitments".
