Sugar Beth Carey was the most hated girl in Parish, Mississippi. She was beautiful, rich and came from one of the town's most prominent families and now 15 years later she is forced to return home to Parish after a string of bad luck. But don't think that this is the story of a woman who has been humbled by the hardships befallen her and has returned home to make amends. Sugar Beth has lost none of her edge and is simply in need of some fast cash so she can hightail it right back out of her small Mississippi town. Unfortunately this is not as easy as she may have hope and she is force to come face to face with old enemies who still hold old grudges.
"AIN'T SHE SWEET" is not the funny romp that I expected when I purchased it, it does have it's more serious moments. I, however, enjoyed it nonetheless. I will definitely be purchasing more of SEP's works in the future!
The book managed to make me cry, laugh and at one point got me so angry I could've strangled Merylinn (secondary character) but I never get tired of reading it. Definately a keeper and a very heartfelt recommendation.
Sugar Beth Carey was the queen of Parrish, Mississippi. She was the most beautiful, the most popular, the most powerful, and, of course, the richest girl in school. She was wild and raised to think she was the best; even her teachers had nothing to see over her. She could make you or break you, she made the rules, and when she left Parrish, it was left in a state of bewilderment over this whirlwind of a girl.
Now Sugar Beth Carey Tharp Zagurski Hooper is back in Parrish. And this Sugar Beth is dirt-poor, has no friends except for her latest husband's 51 year old retarded daughter, and is generally the least wanted person in all of Parrish. And all of her former friends, and her former teacher, Collin Byrne, try their hardest to make her feel it.
This book is a daring example of how to keep your head up high when you've done things wrong, really, really wrong. Sugar Beth doesn't grovel or ask for forgiveness. Instead, she takes what is coming to her with her head held high, and admits that she has been wrong without losing any of her pride. She accepts, even creates situations in which other people can get back at her. So what if she puts her faults on display to prevent anyone else taking a turn at her? Still, the book is light-hearted enough to enjoy on a summer holiday.
This is not a Chicago Stars story, but still, SEP manages to lace some of her earlier work through this book: Molly Summers and her children's books (This Heart of Mine) briefly appear.
Good for a laugh, and a cry.
If you are a SEP fan ignore the reviews suggesting this is a weepie wallow. You may cry but they will be good tears - happy ones. Suger is a good un and this book is well worth a bash.
