Review of Lisa Patton's Rush

RushRush by Lisa Patton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A superb read about sorority life in Mississippi in the year 2016! This novel delves into the intricacies of rush life at a major university--from making good impressions, receiving judgments for one's past, and ohmygosh--the cost of keeping up appearances! A more important aspect of this novel is the issue of racism. A major character, Pearl, is a maid who takes care of her sorority girls as if she's their mother. She is paid a measly wage with no health benefits, and because of her skin color, is told she is not qualified for a higher paying job. Her sorority girls come together in a major coup to help their beloved Pearl. The characters in this novel are so real and very interesting! This was a heartwarming and lovely read with a happily ever after!
