The Sisterhood Novels revolve around three heroines who all come from different backgrounds. In Rush - A Sisterhood Novel, the three girls meet at Latimer University and share the experience of Sorority Rush.
First, there's Veronica "Roni" Van Gelderen. Roni is from a very wealthy and influential Boston family. However, her upbringing has been very hands off. In an act of rebellion, she turns down the offer of admission to Harvard University to get away from home and find herself at Latimer University in Latimer, Florida.
Roni is tall, thin, beautiful, with long black hair and sparkling blue eyes. She's the kind of girl you want to hate because she's so gorgeous, but you just can't because she's the nicest person ever. In terms of casting her, I thought about Megan Fox (Carla from Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen).
Next, there's Jenna Michelle Driscoll. Jenna's the innocent one from a tight-knit family from Atlanta. She's come to Latimer University on a marching band scholarship and she can't wait to embrace college with both arms stretched out. She's bubbly and a little naive, but fun-loving and has a heart of gold. In casting her, I immediately thought of Carrie Underwood of American Idol fame.
Then, there's Lora-Leigh Sorenstein. She's a local girl who longs to bust free from the city limits of Latimer and go off to fashion design school. However, her father is the Dean of Students at Latimer and insists she take advantage of the tuition remission. She really doesn't want to Rush, and is only doing it to please her mother. She's fierce and funny and irreverent and she just might steal your heart. Lora-Leigh has a wild mane of curly hair, so for her, I thought of Kerri Russell of Felicity fame.
Of course, there are guys in the book, but I don't want to give anything away. We'll just say, here are some of the actors who might appear as characters in the books...
And finally...an announcement -- CONTEST WINNER in the name a cute boy character! The winner is:
*~*~*~*~* ALEXGIRL *~*~*~*~*
(You'll have to send me your real name for the acknowledgment portion of book four - Spring Formal - A Sisterhood Novel.)
Her entry was:
Piercing blue eyes. A choppy, rocker 'do. He always carries drumsticks in the back pocket of his skinny jeans and taps them in the air when he's bored, kind of a cute, A.D.D. quirk. And I'd call him Zach Daniels. Or Tug McCloud. Or Vaughn.I'm going to call him Zach Vaughn.
Thanks to everyone who participated! The entries were amazingly good, making it wicked hard to choose a winner.
