review 1: Reviewed by AngieBook provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookOh. My. Goodness. If it were possible for me to just say I ABSOLUTELY FRIGGIN’ LOVED IT, YOU MUST ALL GO GET A COPY NOW and be done with my review, that’d be my review. But since that doesn’t work, let me just say that this is a book that I will re-read at least once a year just so that I can rejoin the girls upon their journey through Rush, college life, romances, and then adulthood.There are no real chapters as the book switches narrators through the four main characters: Diane, Ellen, Karen, and Laurie from 1975 until I believe 2000.I loved how real this book was. You felt like you were going through Rush with them, meeting boys, occasionally attending class, and ge... moretting drunk at the 4 0. My heart broke when a romance ended badly or when something happened in one of the girl’s lives that changed them.Most of all I loved how absolutely amazing their bond was throughout their lives. They made me thankful for my own group of friends whom I’m pretty sure I’ll still be friends with twenty years from now.I hope that there’s a sequel for the younger generation…otherwise, I may need to talk my husband into insurance for my Kindle as I’m afraid my tears – both from laughing so hard and from heartbreak – may short circuit it one of these days!I loved everything about Sorority Sisters and recommend this for anyone who enjoys Chick Lit and friendship that lasts longer than most marriages.
review 2: Apparently, I'm a huge fan of books about female friendship that stands the test of time. This one reminds me of Summer Sisters (Judy Blume), Best Friends (Martha Moody), and Commencement (J. Courtney Sullivan) -- all of which I devoured. The characters were engaging in equal measure (strangely enough, I didn't have a favorite, and I'm one who generally picks favorites among a cast of characters). I thought switching narrators among the cast of characters was effective, although it might have been nice to read a chapter written by Megan. I couldn't figure out the symbolism of yellow and white in the novel, and that's bugging me. Overall, a quick, entertaining story that was a perfect summer read. less

This book is truly a testament to the relationship of sorority sisters. I absolutely loved it.
A nostalgic and fun summer read if you were in a sorority.
The second half of the book was better than the first.
Loved this book! Could've kept reading.
Easy read but a good one. Very enjoyable
