Publisher's Summary

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.

Fun book!

I didn't know what to expect when I bought this book. I was hoping for a light, funny listen for my commute and I got it. This brought back memories of college and one of my best friend's lone year of living in a co-op. Hilarious!

Don't Bother!

I read anything and everything and there has never been a book so horrible I couldn't finish it. Until now. I couldn't do it. This book is horrible. The story is inane and makes little sense. The plot drags--the author seems to think that introducing new characters every chapter is plot development. The stock characters are so badly developed that you don't really care what happens to any of them. Save your money and listen to something--ANYTHING--else.
