What's that, you say? A Spoiler Alert and a giveaway?!
I finally got
my arse off the couch my act together and took a picture
and am posting a giveaway!
Whether they’re called Sweet Potato Queens, Steel Magnolias, Ya-Ya Sisters, or Belles, everybody knows that Southern girls make the best friends. GRITS Friends are Forevah shows you how to tell if you have true GRITS (Girls Raised in the South) friends in your life. Do you know what her nose looked like before she "fixed her deviated septum"? Do you keep the secrets that even her husband doesn’t know? Do you find yourself giggling with her though you’re far too old to be behaving that way? From your first sorority rush to joining the local Red Hat society, and from long walks to long distance phone calls, a GRITS friend makes your victories sweeter, your laughter longer, and your pain gentler.
Whether Deborah is talking about Instant GRITS (young girls), or Seasoned GRITS (women over sixty), childhood friends, new-found pals, sisters, mothers, or even BYOB (Be Your Own Best Friend), she has tips for keeping the laughs and love alive, GRITS-style.
**Note**This is the second Grits book. There is another one called "The GRITS Guide to Life and Puttin’ on the Grits" if you'd like to read both. I thought this was the perfect giveaway for our pick this month; a book about strong southern women!
After CeeCee's mom dies her aunt comes to take her to Savannah. CeeCee's dad won't let her take all of her books. Why do you think books are such an important part of CeeCee's life?
The first portion of the book is sort of a "black and white" version of CeeCee's life.
After she moves to Savannah the book seems to spring to life in technicolor.
Do you think this has to do more with the characters and their quirks or the fact that CeeCee is no longer around her mom's illness?
There are so many different, vivid characters to choose from!
Who is your favorite character so far?
As usual, just comment to enter our giveaway!
