Sarah is a débutante in Charleston and she just doesn't feel like she belongs. Her high society family is all about Southern appearance and Sarah tries to go against the grain whenever humanly possible. After she graduates from high school and has her coming out party she heads to New York where she slaves away at a job she isn't happy with while she searches for Mr. Right the whole time sleeping with a football teams worth of Mr. Wrongs. She falls in love hard with Max and he is alright for a little while until he wants her to have very rough sex with him and at first she thinks it is scary and weird and then she kinda likes it because it makes him happy. Pretty much she needs a good kick in the butt to get her out of that very unhealthy relationship and he needs some meds because he is one twist short of a Slinky. There is a lot of booze and a lot more sex with a lot more men and a lot more self pity and nothing really gets resolved... ever. The one thing Sarah has going for her are her dysfunctional group of friends, they are interesting at least, but they are just as big of a mess as she is.
I wasn't expecting the next great american novel here but I was expecting a little laugh like that hilarious Shopaholic gal or at least the Southern charm of the YaYa Sisterhood, but I didn't get any of that. Unfortunately this book just sort of fizzled out for me and I don't think I would recommend it to anyone.
BOOK vs. MOVIE: Nope.
RATING: 2 Star
