Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch

Once a Camellia, always a Camellia.  Both funny and heartbreaking, this coming of age novel follows sharp, witty Southern debutante Sarah Walters from Charleston's Wednesday night Cotillion Traning School to her escape to college in the North, through love, heartache, disillusionment, and her eventual return home in response to the siren song of the South. Readers of Pat Conroy, Anne Rivers Siddons and Dorothea Benton Frank's novels will want to check out Girls in Trucks!
