Prepwise Comments

Chris: “The story of one woman’s rise to fame and stardom, we realize that it can be an empty place.  Not to mention, the price for achieving it can be too high.  A very good, but very depressing novel.”

Ethan: “Sister Carrie details a number of important shift’s in the protagonist’s life. It serves as a worthwhile read for anyone moving into a more urban setting or just moving into adulthood.”
