The first few chapters are cliche but then you come to love and appreciate the characters for who they are. Think: "The Help" meets "Fried Green Tomatoes". I laughed out loud a couple of times and I wished I were as sassy as Odette.

This is my favorite book I've listened to in 2015 - yes, it's only March, but I think it's going to stay at the top of the list.
It is so creative and funny to me! I hope Edward Kelsey Moore writes another soon.

This was such a wonderful book. Loved it in the audiobook version. A fun journey the 3 friends who call themselves the "Supremes" took growing up together to adulthood. Laughed out loud at times and cried too. Good - Good book!

This audiobook is a delight! I had not heard of it prior to borrowing it but I am so glad I found it. The 3 main characters leap out as distinct personalities but even the sub-characters are well developed. I agree with the opinion noted here that if you enjoy Fannie Flagg, you'll enjoy this book. Would definitely recommend.

Read-alike for The Help

While I enjoyed this book and thought it was better than average (hence the 3 star rating) and thought it was a light, fun read, I thought the writing was just so-so. The characters are quirky and fun, the story line while being a serious subject was told in a very amusing way and the friendships were touching. I think readers who enjoy Fannie Flag would like this book.
