summary Rush by Lisa Patton ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Lisa Patton ↠ 9 summary Set in modern day Oxford Mississippi on the Ole Miss campus bestselling author Lisa Patton’s RUSH is a story about women from both ends of the social ladder discovering their voices courage and empowerment When Lilith Whit the well heeled House Corp President of Alpha Delta Beta one of the premiere sororities on campus appoints recent empty nester Wilda to the Rush Advisory Board Wilda can hardly believe her luck What’s Lilith suggests their daughters both incoming freshman room together What Wilda doesn’t know is that it's all part of Lilith’s plan to ensure her own daughter receives an Alpha Delt bid no matte. Rush by Lisa Patton is a modern day story set at Ole Miss where a new pledge class begins their journey into sorority life The story encompasses many modern themes the variation in class and background of students at college particularly at big universities the high standards including social and financial pressures often associated with traditional Greek life and the unfortunate still prevalent racism in today s society especially in the deep south The story is told from varying perspectives of Miss Pearl Alpha Delta s housekeeper Wilda an Alpha legacy whose daughter Ellie is rushing this year and Cali Watkins an incoming freshman who is also rushing I liked all three of these primary characters Additional supporting characters include Mama Carla the Alpha Delta sorority house manager Aunt Fee the chef Haynes Ellie s Dad and Wilda s husband and Lilith Whit another legacy and the House Corp President of the sorority who is also the mother of a third pledge this year Annie Laurie I was not part of a sorority in college but attended many sorority events as a guest of a close friend who was part of one I think there s variation among different sororities regarding the demands of its members and the degree of their general attitudes and sometimes cutthroat tendencies but I think Rush did a good job of incorporating realistic elements into the book I was caught up in the story enough to read it in its entirety today I did feel like there was a cheese factor at one point but this didn t last long as the story progressed I also reminded myself that many of the characters are young and while smart they were still just 18 22 At the same time it was refreshing to read about young adults willing and ready to take action to make change Even though this story is fictional it was nice to see that everyone is not jaded or feeling defeated and still willing and inspired to take action Rush a timely read given the old school and morally unacceptable attitudes still held by many people who are happy to grasp at the desperate claim of tradition just to hide behind their pathetic outdated views I also chose to read it now because it was seasonally timely with school football season and Fall upon us

I was never in a sorority but Greek life has always fascinated me so when I read the description of Rush I was all in It had the added bonus of being set in the South and I m a sucker for southern fiction as well and this one was oozing good old fashioned southern charm with a side of oh bless her heart sass It was witty fun and I felt like I got a secret look behind the scenes of sorority lifeThere are three points of view here Miss Pearl the longtime housekeeper at Alpha Delt Wilda who s daughter Ellie is rushing for the first time as a freshman and then Cali another hopeful freshman who becomes fast friends with Ellie My favorite of the three was easily Miss Pearl though everyone was enjoyable and fun to hear from Pearl just stole the show for me with her heart that s bigger than Mississippi and her love and affection for all of the Alpha Delt girls she was a true gemWhile this was a light and fun read it definitely still explored some important issues pertaining to race relations and old outdated traditions that are really just a disguise for casual racism The only people of color involved in the sorority are the staff with the exception of just one member and the antiuated rules are finally uestioned and challenged There was a uiet power to this book with some relevant themes that make you think and contemplate which I always appreciate definitely some substance beside sweet southern charmRush in three words Charming Topical and Fun

Please note that I received this book via NetGalley That did not impact my rating or review First off this book promised to be laugh out loud funny it wasn t I guess in 2018 I don t find racist white people even if fictional hilarious It also talks about exploring the relationships between mothers and daughters and friends sure at a very superficial level I do think that I was officially done though when we had a black character not only bash Obamacare and claiming it made poor people poorer but when that same character did a well both sides are at fault here when discussing racism in America You just got the Beyonce Boy Bye middle finger wave from me here Rush seemed like a funny send up of sorority life in America Too bad it was not Rush is mimicking The Help We get multiple POVs We got a black character talking about taking care of her babies she s only 44 We got a white character who is going to do what she can to make things better not only for the woman she has supposedly grown close to after speaking to her I think twice at this point in the book but for all of the staff the help that work at the sorority We also have another character who is foolish as the day as long Rush starts off with Miss Pearl talking about her babies and taking care of the girls of Alpha Delta Beta for 25 years Miss Pearl is going nowhere fast She works at the sorority but does not get paid during the summer when the schoolsorority is closed and is struggling to make ends meet When a possible promotion arises to House Mother Miss Pearl is encouraged by her aunt who is also a cook at the sorority and the current House Mother as well The second POV comes from Wilda She s nervous about her daughter going to Ole Miss since that means she is now officially an empty nester When an opportunity comes up that will allow her to keep an eye on her daughter and also volunteer for Alpha Delta Beta she jumps at the chance Cali Watkins is struggling to fit in at Ole Miss She has a secret she is hiding from not only her roommate Jasmine but also her new best friend Ellie Wilda s mother The three POVs did not work together very well at allMiss Pearl s voice was way too subservient to me Even when she was having problems with a fellow worker she just seemed way too passive There is even a scene where one of her babies touches her hair without permission and instead of telling her not to touch her hair goes to herself well some of these girls parents didn t teach them manners eyeroll I also really really hated this character talking about racism and giving one of the secondary characters Lilith Whit a free pass for her racism and outright hatred towards her at the end of this book You can t be forgiven for something if I don t really think you even absorb what you did The book fast forwards to two weeks later so I guess that s enough time for people to just not be racist any I was bored by Cali s POV from beginning to end Her supposed close relationship to Miss Pearl didn t even work since they don t meet until around the 60 percent mark Cali saying she felt close to Miss Pearl on bid day just didn t ring true You all talked for maybe 10 minutes When Cali and Ellie decide to fight Lilith Whit the book just didn t ring true at all I have not been part of a sorority I was chased after during my undergraduate years to join but I was not in the mood to be part of something where the majority of the sororities were predominantly white Even girls who joined who were African American were very very light skinned This was all back in 1997 by the way So though I have not been part of the Greek life as they say I have a hard time with the way the events in this book are portrayed I don t want to spoil things for potential readers but a few times I went yeah sure that doesn t make any sense at all but whatever Wilda s POV should have been in a separate book Frankly I was interested in her POV Dealing with two sons who are grown living their separate lives She has her youngest daughter at Ole Miss However she gets caught up with keeping up with the Jones s and agrees to have her daughter room with Lilith Whit s daughter That is the beginning of a disaster of her own making When it comes up that the girls should split the cost of a dorm room decorator yeah I was nonplussed myself Wilda goes behind her husband s back to make sure he has no idea what she has done Wilda has some backbone here and there She actually calls out Lilith s racism to her face but she still like all other characters in this book were so passive The secondary characters were not developed very well We have uber racist Lilith Whit who does remind me of so many white people I have met in my life When she tries to explain later about why she is the way she is I rolled my eyes a thousand times Go kick rocksWilda s daughter Ellie would have been a better POV or at least a better additional POV I really didn t get much a sense from her besides she really liked Cali and could not stand rooming with Lilith s daughter Annie Laurie Speaking of Annie Laurie she was just nasty for nasty sake and once again got a redemption that was not deserved at all I will say that Wilda s husband was interesting and they seemed like a pretty happy couple I wish that we had seen fall out discussion between them after all the secrets Wilda was hiding comes out The writing was okay I can at least say you will definitely know the characters voices are separate I just didn t care for all of the characters I also thought the flow was up and down too much We would have Cali talking to Miss Pearl and then the book would jump to the next chapter that was still Cali s POV The POVs I don t think were evenly distributed I can t tell in my ARC version very well so will say that it seems that Wilda and Cali got POVs than Miss Pearl did This book takes place in 2016 and I love that the author does not only mention the Presidential election but manages to get some digs at Obama in there Taking place at Ole Miss which is obviously in Mississippi just about killed me I guess we are not going to talk about the atrocities that have occurred in that state That state had the murder of James Craig Anderson in 2011 by a group of white teenagers But you go ahead and tell me how black people need to let go of things that have happened in the past and move forward instead of blaming white people The ending was white savior nonsense I just couldn t even get spun up about it at this point Was glad to be done with this book
