    " A librarian bud recommended this author, and this book in particular, to give me another perspective on Texas culture. This book is set with the Alamo House sorority sisters at the University of Texas, and in a comical way, details their chaos and torment by the Sigma Upsilon Kappas (aka SUKs)fraternity across the street. Two of the main characters are employed at the LBJ Library, where they are archiving Lady Bird's mementos (which is a side story that contributes to the overall plot). It was a hilarious read, and has a wonderfully redeeming ending after the Alamo House sister retaliate against the attacks of the SUKs. I plan to find more of Sarah Young's books, as her writing style is very entertaining. "
