    After completing White Trash by Alexandra Allred, I can t help but be reminded of the small suburb I live in north of Chicago Everyone knows the place and don t pretend that you don t The place where everyone knows your name, who you re dating, the family you come from, and all your failures Even big cities are made up of these little towns in the form of churchs, schools, neighborhoods, or even apartment buildings These places where everyone knows everyone else s business and wouldn t have it a [...]

    review to be posted 11 June as part of Blog tour UPDATE Let me start by saying that I can t remember the last time a book made me laugh out loud so much I got a few strange looks from the other half for it So much so, I had to take a break and youtube videos of fainting goats so he would understand, and that s just one aspect of hilarity in White Trash.I loved the voice this was written in, it really transported me to Granby, Texas I felt that Thia especially, truly made the reader connect to wh [...]

    4.75This one was so good I could see it as a movie within a few lines I was gasping at parts, and there were many moments that I could not stop laughing I am not from a small town but I had wanted to raise my kids in one I made comment to a friend of mine who grew up in a small town and she told me I was crazy for even thinking it She said you can t do anything without everyone in town knowing about it So reading the same thing had me cracking up.I know that many want to believe that we as human [...]

    This was an amusing story that while reading I found myself bouncing back and forth between awarding 3 and 4 stars The story ended with a good strong finish so I ll post 4 stars.The cast of characters is massive with introductions still being made in the last chapters The shifting POVs was interesting but not quite balanced The first third of the story was heavily in Thia s POV but a few other characters were sprinkled in to keep the reader intrigued while the craziness of small East Texas town [...]

    This is a hard hitting story, extremely well written Theresa Franks celebrated winning her college scholarship, leaving inbred, small town Texas behind for good But at twenty four, unexpectedly a mother, she limps home to the petty gossip, her babysitting mother and a job with the local paper Male students do not have the pregnancy trap, and the efforts of women to escape are derided by locals Just like all the other girls in this town, comments the garage attendant, who barely finished high sch [...]

    When I drive across Texas this summer I m going to keep my eye on city limits signs If I see that Alexandra Allred s fictional White Trash town of Granby has suddenly become real, I may back track and go around Not because I don t want to see it, but because there s a good chance that if I do I ll get swept up into its stories and never leave.That s exactly what happened to Thia Franks When she graduated high school, her scholarship to Duke was her one way ticket out of town, and you probably ca [...]

    Ms Allred s first book Damaged Goods shocked me, then made me laugh in the opening chapter This one made my jaw drop when I read what those women called that baby I wanted to immediately see some kind of justice, or apology, or growth in this town.Then the murder happened and everyone was pointing fingers and there were mobs and sadness and distrust was growing by leaps and bounds.In the middle of all of the drama there were moments of outright hilarity Have you ever heard of fainting goats I ha [...]

    Full review posted here.Source Netgalley Publisher ARC Rating 4.2 5This book is an atmospheric account of small town life in rural Granby If you haven t lived in a small Southern town, Allred brings it to life for you There are many characters in this book but all were fleshed out beautifully We root for Thia herself because she is a bold, upright sensible young woman who cannot tolerate racism and injustice She also has a spry sense of humor, and we get to read her tongue in cheek accounts of t [...]

    ARC was provided by NetGalley and The Writer s Coffee Shop Publishing House in exchange for an honest reviewWelcome to Granby, Texas.Where everybody knows everybody and the comunity is ruled by their strong leaders.Thia Franks thought that she could leave it all behind her.The town, the narrowmindness, the friends she had growing up ,as well as the people who she could not stand growing up.Then she made one mistake and had to come back.But she didn t resent her mistake because it gave her Ella, [...]

    Thia Franks is back in her home town, and must figure out her place in it That s not as easy as it sounds, since everyone living there seems to have a secret life or agenda There are a lot of townsfolk with intriguing stories, many of them unattractive Thia is a keen observer of them all.Ms Allred has the ability to throw light on dark issues without making stories preachy The lady cops, Fox and Wolfe are badass Also, hilarious And I got a particular kick out of the squirrel lady as I actually k [...]

    Braine s Talk Supe reviewWHITE TRASH s premise is simple but it s the characters who really made the big difference for me They made me laugh, cringe in embarrassment and really had me thinking hard about some of the issues they took on And most importantly, I love how Allred s clever sense of humor made the issues she highlighted easier to read and very effective in terms of having us readers reflect on our own prejudices.
