RT Rating

Based upon the author's own friendship with her college girlfriends, this novel follows the lives of six friends who have nicknamed themselves the Same Sweet Girls (SSGs).

The women bonded during
their years at an Alabama women's
college and continue to remain
friends two decades later. Though
their lives have changed greatly
since their college days, they reunite
at least once a year to crown a new
queen of the SSGs. When one of
the SSGs becomes seriously ill,
the other women rally around
her and their bond strengthens.

King takes the reader to new
heights with her enthralling tale
of stalwart women's friendships.
Always lyrical and compelling, King's novels are the essence of women's
fiction. Her latest is no exception,
rife with lyricism, wit, romance
and hope for a brighter tomorrow.
