Join a circle of friends that will never be broken in Cassandra King’s celebrated national bestseller, The Same Sweet Girls.

None of the Same Sweet Girls are really girls anymore, and none of them have actually ever been that sweet. But the story of this spirited group of six southern women who have been holding biannual reunions ever since they were together in college, is nothing short of compelling.

On an island every summer and in the mountains every fall, the Same Sweet Girls come together to share their stories. When one of the group faces the most difficult challenge of her life, the novel builds to an almost unbearably powerful conclusion, one of the most memorable in current fiction. Without a touch of sentimentality, Cassandra King writes of the way close friends can help each other through even the most cataclysmic life events. Both heartbreaking and hilarious, The Same Sweet Girls will touch, move, and inspire readers to cherish their own lifelong friendships.

Perfect for reading groups, The Same Sweet Girls is a story of friendship that readers will want to share with their special girlfriends.

Listener Opinions

    " This was a book about friendship and acceptance. Not all of the characters were loveable; some of their actions were reprehensible. The story, however, was captivating. The book was about mature women, not some doe eyed young things. They have life histories and complications. They have made mistakes and have supported one another-some more so than others. They dealt with situations and confronted their demons. Some had troubled or unusual marriages. Some had affairs, some resisted. They were not at all what they seemed. An illness turns out to be just that(though I had suspected poisoning...). The book does involve adult issues, such as rape and euthanasia. Viewed from outside, many lives seem perfect, but, when examined, all are flawed. This book did a good job of showing the public perception while exposing the reality. It was nice, as a mature woman, to read a book about mature women coping with life's ups and down. I may not agree with how some issues were handled, and the ending, which was not what I believe true friends would have done, but the book was a good read. "

    " A great book about friendships, how they develop, how they grow and why... i really enjoyed this book and found that I was deeply moved by the story line. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amyneu28 | 2/2/2014

    " Okay story...did not love it and I was kind of bored reading it. A group of girlfriends from college who get together ever year..blah, blah, blah. But the girls didn't seem to like each other very much....I kept thinking "why bother pretending to be friends"? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rikki | 1/22/2014

    " Enjoyable and quick read, though sometimes I wished for a bit more understanding about the relationships between these women. It feels a bit like relationships with friends you've had a long time. You just know they're there and you can count on them, but there's a lot about the relationship that goes unexamined. The end left me a bit unresolved b/c but mostly because I wanted to know what happens as their lives move forward. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 1/10/2014

    " One of those stories about women and all the changes that come about as you grow up.. The friendship of these women is like the ones you always say you'll keep as you age but you never do. It has a nice wistful quality that way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Gill | 1/4/2014

    " Six southern women and their reunions each year since college.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/4/2014

    " Women and their friends, it's a classic story, along the lines of YaYa Sisters. Every woman needs a group of friends to help get them through lifes ups and downs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alexis Williams | 11/24/2013

    " Great story of friendships! Each character has a funny way at looking at life! Some harsh things happen in Corrine's life. It's all about having close knit relationships to see you through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 11/18/2013

    " Nice easy read, which is what I needed at the time I read it. Those with a close-knit group of girlfriends should really enjoy it. "

    " I was entertained by this book. It is a girl's club story of friendship. It was okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joelle | 11/1/2013

    " Great book, the begining is a little slow but once you get through the first couple of chapters, it's a page turner. It's about friendships, love, loss, and lessons in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Avcstyle | 6/8/2013

    " A group of women that all met in their college days reunite every year to crown one of them a queen for all their good deeds. It is a great book about friendship, and life, and all that people go through midlife. It has a taste of everything and makes you appreciate your girlfriends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia Cadenhead | 6/8/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 5/2/2012

    " Technically, I wouldn't give 5 stars to this ENTIRE book. But the ending did it for me. Totally did me in. It's amazing what true friends would put themselves through for one another! "

    " If I were 20 years older, I probably would have enjoyed this novel, about a group of friends, a little more. Overall, it was fine; I just didn't like the piece of drama that was thrown in there to finish out the novel. "
