    Apparently being a sorority girl in New York is NOTHING like being a sorority girl down in Ole Miss! I loved this book, my first of Lisa Patton?s (I?ve already now bought all of her others!) which reminded me a bit of Kathryn Stockett?s The Help with a delightfully contemporary t...

    This book caught me by surprise., When I first started reading it, I was not into it and felt like it was going to similar to the Help but in a university setting. Boy was I wrong! I got totally engrossed in the story the further along I got into the book. This is a book about mother/d...

    ????? / 5 rounded up BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD. This is how Rush by Lisa Patton made me feel. It is a beautiful book that touches on race, and was reminiscent of a Jodi Picoult novel. What it's about: Miss Pearl has been working at the sorority of Alp...

    I loved it and will give it a 5 star. This was a different review for me to write though. My daughter lived this book. I know people in real life that could be the characters in the book. Some of them very nice and some not so nice ones that you will meet if you read the book, which I ...

    I wanted very much to attend Ole Miss, and be in a sorority, but life took me in a different direction. Luckily for me, Lisa Patton?s ?Rush? gives an insider?s view to the traditions and secrets of Southern life and sisterhood. Told from the viewpoints of Miss Pearl, who works...

    I was never in a sorority but Greek life has always fascinated me so when I read the description of Rush I was all in. It had the added bonus of being set in the South and I?m a sucker for southern fiction as well and this one was oozing good old fashioned southern charm with a side ...

    Having never been in a sorority, reading Rush gave me an interesting peek into what rush means and the reason women want to join a sorority. On top of that, this book was so filled with compassion, love and caring that I was instantly drawn in and I hated to see it end. Instead of b...

    Some books you read and you know they come from the heart. RUSH is one of those books ?it is so brimming with compassion even as it looks at and points out the subtle ways racism still thrives even in places of luxury like multimillion-dollar sorority houses. It?s a difficult sub...

    Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. That did not impact my rating or review. First off, this book promised to be laugh out loud funny, it wasn't. I guess in 2018 I don't find racist white people (even if fictional) hilarious. It also talks about exploring the relat...
