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. (Like ride with boys in pickup trucks).

But Sarah can't quite ignore the barbarism just beneath all that propriety, and as soon as she can she decamps South Carolina for a life in New York City. There, she and her fellow displaced Southern friends try to make sense of city sophistication, to understand how much of their training applies to real life, and how much to the strange and rarefied world they've left behind.

When life's complications become overwhelming, Sarah returns home to confront with matured eyes the motto Once a Camellia, always a Camellia- and to see how much fuller life can be, for good and for ill, among those who know you best.

Girls in Trucks introduces a narrative voice that is astonishing and irresistible - a true, sweet, and wise voice that heralds the arrival of an exciting new talent.

    " Fast easy read. A bit of a downer. "

    " This might be one of the saddest books that I have read in a while. I found myself rooting for the main character to find her bit of happiness. I liked the book, but I found myself being frustrated with some of the events. "

    " Don't recommend. It started out good, a story that follows the lives of a southern girl who rebels and moves north and her friends but then plot deteriorates and author tries to make up for it by including every plausible hot issue of the day - alcoholism, spousal abuse, marrying for green card, suicide, cancer, drug addict, adultery, lesbianism, etc. as well as a sudden trip to south america that makes the story really unreaslistic. "
