Review:

“The feel of a night out with the girls...charming...undeniably fun.” ―Miami Herald

“This lively debut novel...reads like the Hispanic version of Waiting to Exhale.” ―New York

“As a guilty pleasure I would say The Dirty Girls Social Club ranks somewhere between Valrhona Chocolate and Jimmy Choo shoes--I simply could not put it down.” ―Whitney Ottto, author of How to Make an American Quilt

“The summer's must-have beach book” ―Latina magazine

“A fresh spin on the best-of-friends novel that's funny, touching, and exhilarating. A winner!” ―Jennifer Crusie

“The Latina community has a rich new voice and Valdez-Rodriguez is it.” ―Jeffrey Kluger, coauthor of Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13

Dirty Girls sets out to prove Latina can mean anything--black, white, rich, poor, Spanish-speaking, not Spanish-speaking.” ―The Miami Herald

“Valdes-Rodriguez has written an incredible first novel, told in six distinct voices and points of view.” ―Library Journal

“In the end, it's the complex, finely drawn characters who make the book work.” ―Rocky Mountain News

“A heartfelt, fast-moving, and often funny page-turner.” ―Booklist

“This season's most scrumptious book...a summer must.” ―Advocate

“Those who liked The Joy Luck Club or The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood will enjoy The Dirty Girls Social Club...It is heartfelt, fast-moving, and often funny.” ―Oklahoman

“(An) affecting debut that takes a long, hard, and funny look at life in the U.S. for Latina women...an upscale telenovela with well-drawn, charmingly flawed characters from an author who explodes some myths.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Marked by fast-paced dialogue and a pop-culture sensibility, this engaging novel, each section of which is written from a different woman's perspective, carries an unmistakable message.” ―Book

“The writing is strong, fluid, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.” ―Pioneer Press

“Valdes-Rodriguez' compelling characters are enhanced by their racial identities but not at all inaccessible to the non-Hispanic...an enjoyable read.” ―San Antonio Express-News

“Valdes-Rodriguez' novel delivers on the promise of its sexy title (with a) diverse group of women that defies stereotypes. The book addresses serious questions-prejudice, the difficulty of winning respect from Latino men-but balances them with enough romances...to satisfy any chick lit fan. This is a fun, irresistible debut.” ―Publishers Weekly
