Girl Meets Class
by Karin Gillespie
…Karin such an awesome writer. She has created a story that hooks the reader and doesn’t let go.
This is a very fast read with some heavy themes but Gillespie has a way of writing that keeps the importance of the topics but they have a lighter feel while enlightening the reader. She adds Southern charm and humor in exactly the right amounts and places.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
… the author took a character that I actively didn’t like and turned her into someone I was cheering for at the end. For me, that is the mark of a great author and a good read.
~Musings and Ramblings
This is a coming of age story in many ways, but Gillespie sneaks in commentary on the educational system, corruption, racism, and the elusive concept of trust.
~Christa Reads and Writes
It is funny, Southern and just delightful…I absolutely adored this book.
~A Chick Who Reads

The unspooling of Toni Lee Wells’ Tiffany and Wild Turkey lifestyle begins with a trip to the Luckett County Jail drunk tank. An earlier wrist injury sidelined her pro tennis career, and now she’s trading her tennis whites for wild nights roaming the streets of Rose Hill, Georgia.
Her wealthy family finally gets fed up with her shenanigans. They cut off her monthly allowance but also make her a sweetheart deal: Get a job, keep it for a year, and you’ll receive an early inheritance. Act the fool or get fired, and you’ll lose it for good.
Toni Lee signs up for a fast-track Teacher Corps program. She hopes for an easy teaching gig, but what she gets is an assignment to Harriet Hall, a high school that churns out more thugs than scholars.
What’s a spoiled Southern belle to do when confronted with a bunch of street smart students who are determined to make her life as difficult as possible? Luckily, Carl, a handsome colleague, is willing to help her negotiate the rough teaching waters and keep her bed warm at night. But when Toni Lee gets involved with some dark dealings in the school system, she fears she might lose her new beau as well as her inheritance.
