The sorority sisters of Alamo House at the University of Texas may be at comic odds with each other, but at least they have one thing in common: they all hate the fraternity rats across the street, the Sigma Upsilon Kappas, aka the SUKs. But amid the collegiate turmoil, Alamo House is also the scene of an extraordinary, endearing friendship among three women: Mary Jo, hilariously confused about life and love but determined to get both right; Fayrene, flushed with freedom after her escape from Baptist Waco; and Collie, party girl and self-proclaimed guide to the ways of the world. Together they embark on a roller coaster of escapades that changes them all and galvanizes Alamo House into an all-out counterattack against the SUKs. The result is infectious, side-splitting fun sure to convince everyone that Mary Jo, Collie, and Fayrene are the best southwestern mixture since tequila, lime, and salt. Austin native Sarah Bird is a journalist and screenwriter who has authored several novels showcasing humor and insight into human relationships.More
