Fancy White Trash by Marjetta Geerling
by Rebecca English
(Grand Rapids, MI)
If you enjoy laughing a great deal and reading about the fallen values of a family that is considered "white trash," this book is definitely for you! Abby Savage is the main character living in a house with five girls and one bathroom. She is astounded by the choices that her mother and sisters make repeatedly and hopes to escape the white trash life style that she has been raised in for years.
Abby makes up rules in order to assure herself from falling in her family's footsteps. Imagine three pregnancies at one time to the same male. Imagine your parent's marriage, divorce, then marriage again and divorce again! Imagine having sisters with reputations the size of wrap sheets.
Imagine having a wonderful gay next door neighbor best friend to escape and share your deepest thoughts with. This book is funny, touching and includes details from a truly fancy white trash family. Kudos to Marjetta Geerling for her first novel.
