I really wanted to love this book. This is one of my favorite times in history. Ultimately, I didn't care about the characters and not enough attention was paid to the history, fashion, or even the music of the Roaring 20's. I have no desire to read the rest of this series. ( )

Excellent! Set in the middle of Prohibition, and told from the point of view of three girls, readers get a hint of life amongst the rich during bootlegging. We're introduced to gangsters and speakeasies, and their lifestyles. Each of the girls has a unique story to tell, as anger, longing and jealousy drip from the pages. A great read. ( )

Super fun read! Keeping in mind the audience intended, I thought this was interesting from an historical perspective, but I also enjoyed the character development as each girl changed--and recognized (or denied) their evolving personalities. ( )

I realize this is flapper dessert to indulge in, but I had too many others to read and had to put it down for now. It just was not that well written and kind of silly. I will revisit later due to reviews and my lack of patience. ( )

Epigraph
PART ONE

SPEAK EASY

****

All life is just a progression toward,
and then a recession from,
one phrase - I love you.

~F. Scott Fitzgerald ("The Off-Shore Pirate,"
The Saturday Evening Post, 29 May 1920)
PART TWO

SPEAK LOW

****

I don't want to live.
I want to love first,
and live incidentally.

~Zelda Fitzgerald (1919)
Dedication
For the two finest modern-day flappers,
Beverly and Wendy:
You've got all the moves.
