A vibrant and absorbing novel of six friends - each an unforgettable Latina in her late twenties - and the complications and triumphs in their lives.

What the Critics Say

"This is a fun, irresistible debut." (Publishers Weekly)
"This is a heartfelt, fast-moving, and often funny page-turner." (Booklist)
"As a guilty pleasure I would say The Dirty Girls Social Club ranks somewhere between Valrhona chocolate and Jimmy Choo shoes - I simply could not put it down." (Whitney Otto, author of How to Make an American Quilt)

Entertaining but not spectactular

This book was a light, entertaining listen as long as you don't expect too much. While the character were interesting, the story was somewhat predictable. My biggest disappointment with this audiobook however was not with the story, which was amusing enough. Instead- it was with the author who insited on reading the book herself. She tries to hold on to character voices and accents, but slips back into her natural voice an accent within a few sentences. This became distracting to the point of annoyance at times. Other than that, it was a fun, easy listen.
