Publisher's Summary

It's '86, the era of Pop Rocks, Jelly shoes, and big hair bands. Rachael O'Brien's freshman plan seems simple: Attend a southern college away from her hometown of Canton, Ohio, earn a degree, party, and meet cute guys-hopefully acing the latter two.
But being threatened by a jealous She-Devil, avoiding the advances of a 30-something redneck, and discovering an art fraud scheme mess with her "to do" list. On top of her troubles at school, Rachael finds herself forging a new relationship with her emotionally shaken father after Mom abandons the family to pursue a psychic calling. Bad decision-making, law-bending behavior, and surprise romances make freshman year challenging in Paisley Ray's Deep Fried and Pickled quick-witted, south-of-the-Mason-Dixon romp.

Going to College with Rachel O;Brien is A Hoot

Lots of fun getting immersed in the wacky world of the story. There's plenty of wit and humor woven into Rachel O'Brien's misadventures and the unique bunch of characters she encounters. Listening to this book can provide a great antidote to the tension of rush hour traffic.

Funnier than Raid on a cockroach!

What did you love best about Deep Fried and Pickled?

This book can both make you wish you were back in college while at the same time making you happy you never have to relive those days again.<br/><br/>The delivery, the narration, the phrasing and vocalizations are fantastic.

What other book might you compare Deep Fried and Pickled to and why?

While totally different while having some similar attributes, I think readers of this series and readers of Kelsey Browning and Nancy Naigle's work would appreciate this snarky southern insight.

Which character – as performed by Suzanne Cerreta – was your favorite?

I laughed at so many!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

who knew college life would give such an education!

Any additional comments?

Keep your shoes with you, cell phone charged (I know, but now is a different time) a good GPS app and money to pay for your own way home.
