The Girls of August by Anne River Siddons should probably be titled The Mean Girls of August. It is a rushed, relatively undeveloped story that goes something like this. Mean girls (who are really middle aged women) unite against the new girl. New girl perseveres. Repeat. Repeat some more. Insert some big melodramatic events that may or may not change relationships. Repeat. The end. That's it. A disappointing re-introduction to the author's work for me.

Fast beach read. Not up to the author's normal standards. It felt rushed and underdeveloped but despite that I enjoyed it,

I was so disappointed in this book. It is hundreds of pages of four 40 year old women bullying and young woman in her mid twenties. Instead of being role examples, or taking her under her wing, all they dig was criticize and berate. I can't believe I finished it.
