Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
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.
