FOR THIS TO BE THE AUTHORS FIRST BOOK, I THINK SHE DID A GREAT JOB! I AM A GREEK, AND ALTHOUGH THE AUTHOR IS IN ANOTHER SORORITY I COULD RELATE TO THE BOOK. I DO NOT THINK SHE IS TRYING TO REPRESENT JUST ONE SORORITY, BUT ANY SORORITY THAT THINK THEY HAVE IT GOING ON. LADIES I WAS TAUGHT THAT YOU SUPPORT YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. SHE MY NOT BE MY SOROR, BUT SHE IS MY SISTER IN CHRIST. TAJUANA I AM PRAYING FOR YOU AND I KNOW YOU WILL BE BLESSED. THANK YOU FOR SUCH A POSITIVE BOOK.

Whether you've pledged a sorority, are thinking about it, or just want some insight, this book is a must read. I didn't want it to end. I too am a member of the most 'elite' sorority and felt the need to pass this on to two of my 'sands'. Thank you Soror Tajuana for bringing back sweet memories...

I, thoroughly, enjoyed this book. I, too, am Greek and this book definitely took me down memory lane. I am excited about recommending this book to my sands so we can come together and reminisce about i.v.i.e.s. lane...;-)

This book is a must read for all young ladies that plan on joining any type of sorority. The book displays different situations that affect each character and their decision on rushing for a popular sorority on campus( which was actually never revealed in the book, but had good hints). As a Deb for my local Kappa Beta Omega chapter, i feel a lot more connected to what I should expect once i go to college.And even though it shows some good and bad sides to rushing, I still have dreams of one day becoming a lady of the pink and green!

If you pledged a black sorority or if you were on a campus with black greeks, this is the book. I will admit that it isn't the best book I have ever read, but it was funny, touching, and it makes you remember the good old college days.

I really wanted this book to be good. It was a very slow start and too many characters. It really wasn't anything like I expected. I wouldn't buy this.

This book is about 5 young ladies in diff't years of college who decide to join a sorority during the same semester. They are immediately thrust together and made to know all there is to know about one another. It is about the bond that is created while pledging and how they help one another through their many situations during this short period of time. You will laugh, curse and enjoy the diff't personalities and will definitely fin done who is exactly like you.

TJ wrote a book that I enjoyed immensely. She told it exactly like it is especially in regards to life as a sorority member and college life. I recommend it to a young woman going to college and planning to pledge.

When I picked the book up, I was really excited to start. I wanted to pledge into a different sorority than the one in this book but couldn't convince myself to go through the hazing process (read: physical hazing) so I never did. I figured this book would give me an insider's view as to what I missed and make me remember my college years. But this book was WACK! Butler didn't master the fine art of any good author: showing, not telling. She needs a thesaurus fast, because every description she gave had the same words (ex: sexy, intelligent, cute). When she wasn't beating me over the head with adjectives, she was annoying me with dialogue inconsistency. People with bad grammar don't say words like 'shall'. In normal conversation, people don't express their feelings with the word 'and' 3 or 4 times in the same sentence. Whenever she finally got around to her characters using realistic dialogue, it would be followed by something too proper. I'm not knocking correct grammar, but Butler needs to take dialogue writing courses. Better yet, go to her favorite hang out spot with a tape recorder and listen to how real people talk. Authors who have dialogue consistency down are people like Lynn Messina, Lorenzo Carcaterra, Y. Blak Moore, April Sinclair, and Heru Ptah. On top of all of that, the book was corny. Fairy Tales stepped out of nowhere and did ballet right when I thought the book was gonna get gritty. People were walking around in matching outfits, suddenly forgiving betraying friends, and everyone loved everyone. Get real! (Literally) Surprisingly, I did enjoy one character in this book and that was Cajen. I learned about something she 'got' and I was shocked to read unknown info on it. I also enjoyed her vulnerability, strength, and intensity. She was a colorful character to read about and I would've enjoyed a whole book based around her life. I also cracked up at the similarities between us: the crush on the guy with a black truck, wanting to pledge, being secretive, and honest are all characteristics of mine. Luckily, I didn't take it to the extent that she did. I respected Butler for giving readers an inside view of pledging but staying true to her promise of not giving away all her secrets (even though I wanted to know every gory detail). I would've liked more back story on the big sisters though. Anyway, the idea was fabulous, Cajen was fun to read, and I loved reading about the pledging process, but I'm glad I got the book from the library (which I rarely do). If I had bought this book, I'd have gotten my money back. And who did the cover? None of these girls look anything like their descriptions in the book.

I loved this book, I'm an African Amercian, teenager and I loved the book. I read a lot of books, and this book happens to be one of my favorites. It's about college life, relationships, temptation, and mistakes people make in life, but don't make the best out of them. This book is really good.

This book was awesome. I read it before I was Greek, and it was wonderful reading how close these women were. It truly captures the essence of a great sisterhood. I think all women who are interested in Greek life should read this book. Skee-Wee Sorors! Pretty Girls Wear Twenty Pearls

It took me about two days to read this book. It was very good, and I could not put it down. I reccomend every one read this book, especially the women.

This was a wonderful book. It gave people in and out of college and Greek life, a peek inside. It's spectacular to see this wonderful piece of literary work coming from a BLACK writer. I think that other black authors should write about their greek life from their perspective. I hope that there will be a a follow-up. I'd recommend this to many people.

I enjoyed this book, mainly because I'm happy that someone has written a book about this experience. I could tell that Butler is an AKA even though she didn't mention it and even if the sorority color had not been pink. I think that it would have been nice to have a 'made up' sorority so that the name, colors and call could have been mentioned. Each character had their own identity and you felt like you knew all the girls. She addresses some college issues every women will face or has faced. All in all I think the book was a good one for a break in novel, I hope to see another book and hopefully some growth. Oh and OOO-OOP! to my devastatingly devine sorors of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

Sorority Sisters was the 1st book I read just for enjoyment. It is a wonderful book that gives you insight about college and 'Greek' life in college between 'black' people. If you are thinking about pleding in college or going to a historically 'black' college, than this is the book for you.

To all the 'Most Gracious Ladies', TJ Butler has truly represented our culture. I read this book in the matter of two days! I truly can appreciate each character and all the situations. There is a little bit of all of us in each one of these characters. When is the sequal? SKEE-WEE to all my sorors. Pick up this book if you haven't yet.

This book really reminded me of my process and the things me and my 2 best friends went through. I would recommend this for any perspective members or 'old heads'. And a big 'SKEE WEE' to all my sorors!

I am a member of a historically black sorority, and I believe this book is a MUST READ for any African-American woman, whether you're joining a sorority, already in a sorority, or just want a good book to read. I read this book the semester before I pledged, and even though my experience wasn't exactly like the book, the book was insightful and helpful. Very good book for a first-time author too. This book was so entertaining, I didn't want to put it down! OO-OOP to all my sorors of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.!!!!
