"The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls," by Anton Disclafani

The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls - Anton DiSclafani

The Plot: 15-year-old Thea Atwell is sent away from her beloved childhood home to the Yonahlossee Riding Camp of the title - a summer camp for wealthy Southern debutantes and a year-round school for troubled wealthy Southern debutantes. The "terrible sin" for which she was sent away is unravelled throughout the novel in flashbacks. Also, there are horses.

 

The Good:

  • Horses!
  • Good period description
  • Lovely writing
  • Solid pacing

 

The Bad:

  • Terrible Parents
  • Cousin Lovin'
  • Sex with a teacher (come ON, Thea)
  • Not terribly interesting
