Overview

Beta Gamma Psi had been a part of Eva Perkins life since birth. When she starts college at Edwin Carver Science and Technology University she takes strides to become a member of the sorority that both her mother and sister belong to.

After years of attending Beta events and pre-pledging at Carver; Eva eventually finds herself on line pledging Beta. Discord and infighting among the big sisters and within the pledge class leads to drama.

An unexpected event divides the big sisters and the pledges. When rumors of hazing threaten the chapter, the pledge sisters have to bond together to solidify their future within the organization. Eva discovers that a sorority is about hard work, dedication, and building lifelong friendships.

    All in the Name of Sisterhood

    In the novel, 'Be My Sorority Sister Under Pressure', Dorrie Williams-Wheeler takes us behind the scenes of pledge life, through the eyes of Eva Perkins. Even before enrolling into Edwin Carver Science and Technology University, Eva had her sights set on becoming a member of Beta Gamma Psi, an elite sorority where only the best need apply. With stars in her eyes, and the desire to sport Greek paraphernalia in her heart, Eva can¿t shake the thought of following family tradition of shouting the Beta call and enjoying the benefits of being a fellow sister. Eva becomes so overly zealous to impress the Beta sorors that she begins to neglect her academic responsibilities and ultimately finds herself being used by those who hold the power to make her dream come true. After Ursula makes amends with Eva after a ¿misunderstanding¿ between she and the Betas, Eva finally makes her way into the Beta Gamma Psi house and begins her journey to pledge life. The pressure builds as Eva is forced to bond with other pledges, endure mind games, and navigate her way through ups and downs, determined that she would be one of the lucky few to ¿cross over.¿ Through Eva¿s journey, she discovers what sacrifices must be made, what freedoms she must trade, and what secrets must be kept when things spiral out of control. When the ultimate quandary presents itself, Eva finds herself mixed up in a tangled ball of mess that she was not prepared to handle. A secret threatens to tear Beta Gamma Psi apart¿ sisters turn against sisters, and pledges turn against pledges, as everyone points fingers to save their own hides and escape blame and consequences. Is Eva able to become a sorority sister under pressure, or will all of her efforts prove to be in vain, and her name be ruined? If you would like a sneak peak into the quest to become Greek, or even reminisce about your pledge days, Mrs. Wheeler¿s novel is well suited for your reading pleasure. With a conversational style that possesses many qualities of thoughts recorded in a journal, Eva¿s story will prove to draw you into her world while making you question your views on today¿s sorority practices.-Andrea Blackstone, author of '$chemin':Confessions of a Gold Digger', Flavah Reviewer

    A must read

    This book is a must read for anyone already greek or a wannabe. It is simply written for an easy read by young teen girls, yet not too simple that college woman will not want to read it. Under Pressure should be a must read for young girls and included in book clubs and in schools.

    A Must Read For Greeks and Wannabee's

    Be My Sorority Sister-Under Pressure is about one woman's quest to become join a fictional sorority named Beta Gamma. The main character is named Eva Perkins. Eva's mother, sister, father and brother are all greek so when she goes away to college she basically becomes obsessed with joining Beta Gamma Psi, the sorority her mother and sister belong to. Written in first person, it is easy to become enthralled in Eva's journey. Dorrie Williams-Wheeler is a very detailed writer and she takes her readers along every step of Eva's journey. The book is quick paced and exciting. There are several unexpected twists and turns. Although there are several charcters the book is written very clearly and I had no trouble following the storyline. The reader gets to know sevreral of the pledges and the big sisters. Overall this was a very good read. It reminded me very much of the climate at my college. The only complaints I have are that it seemed to end rather abrubtly and that there was no clear resolution about the main characters family situation. Several times in the book Eva complains that she feels different around her mother and sister because they are both greek and she isn't. However, she does have an epiphany towards the end of the book where she determines that she is going to live for herself and not her family. This is one of the better greek books on the market. The author details the stress of going to rushes and hoping to hear something. This is a good book, a keeper.
