April 26, 2014

The pub­lisher is giv­ing away one copy of this book to two (2) winners –to enter fill out the Raf­fle­copt­ter form at the end of the post.

Written with a blend of humor and practical wisdom, The Same Sweet Girl’s Guide to Life offers inspiration and solid advice to new graduates that can sustain them through life’s inevitable ups and downs. In this small book readers will find advice that will only grow in meaning throughout the years. It can – and should – be read again and again, by thoughtful people of all ages.

King’s true gift is in her ability to present readers with the sort of hard-earned wisdom that will help both young and old find sustenance and renewed meaning in their lives. According to acclaimed author Dorothea Benton Frank, “This little book offers big wisdom delivered with Cassandra King’s signature wit. I can’t imagine a better gift to guide the recent graduate, or for any friend passing through one of life’s transitions.”

Some pearls of wisdom: Dare to laugh at yourself. Find kindred spirits and keep them close to you; expand your circle of friends. Know the true value of time. She also advises that we try to find words to express love and gratitude but to keep in mind that it is our actions that reveal our feelings more than our words.

Cassandra’s advice is applicable to boys as well as girls.

And as an addition to this lecture at Montevallo College, King adds a new afterword on the value of becoming a lifelong reader.
As she so poignantly notes, “books let us know we’re not alone in this world…some might say that we lose ourselves in a good book. In truth, we find ourselves.”

A portion of the money raised by publication of this edition will go to the university’s Same Sweet Girls Scholarship Fund.

Cassandra King, who has been called “the Queen of Southern storytelling,” is the author of five novels,Making Waves,The Sunday Wife, The Same Sweet Girls,Queen of Broken Hearts, and most recently the highly praisedMoonrise, which was an Okra Pick and SIBA bestseller. A native of Lower Alabama, Cassandra resides in Beaufort, South Carolina, with her husband, writer Pat Conroy. Visit her website at
