The Last Girls centers around four middle-aged Southern women who, as students at an idyllic Blue Ridge women’s college thirty years before, were inspired by Huckleberry Finn to take their own raft trip down the Mississippi River. Now a tragedy brings them back together for a repeat voyage under very different circumstances—aboard a luxurious cruise steamboat. Through this framework, which can be seen as a modern-day rendition of Mary McCarthy’s The Group, Smith explores the nature of romance, the relationship between life and fiction, the relevance of the past to the present, and the unexpected course of women’s lives.

    " Couldn't finish it. Made it with only 80 pages left. Reading time is few and far between now - not worth reading if I'm not loving it. "

    " It was just OK. Originally bought the book for my mom, but she had already read it, so not a book I would have normally picked up. Story of women getting together with old college roommates after one of them died and wanted the rest of them to scatter her ashes. "
