My Thoughts: I was so excited to read this book because it was about Rush. Even though I’m not in a sorority I like the idea and concept of them. I had a little bit of mixed feelings about this book. In the beginning I felt like the whole concept of a sorority and dorm living was seen superficially. Obviously knowing the concept of this book it was on regards about racism and how it should be changed. Still, that caused me to dislike some of the characters in the beginning. A little over half way in I started to really enjoy the book because it seemed very revolutionary and that things were being done to make a positive change. I really enjoyed the various perspectives of characters. Overall, it was a pretty good book, with some points that I disliked. I would still recommend for you guys to check it out when it releases and see what you think!
