Item description for Fair-Weather Friends (Good Girlz) by ReShonda Tate Billingsley...

When racism separates members of Good Girlz, a church-related community service group, the girls must remember that what is on the inside matters more than the outside, and while they may not be able to remove the world's prejudices, they can change themselves.

Publishers Description
Welcome to the club....

The Theta Ladies are the hottest new high school sorority, and Camille wants in! After seeing the girls perform a fantastic show at her school, Camille's dreaming of donning the pink satin T-shirt of the Thetas...and is beyond flattered when the sorority sisters actually acknowledge her existence. If only she could persuade her best friends -- Alexis, Jasmine, and Angel -- to join with her....

Is it worth the price of admission?

Jasmine has always butted heads with Tori Young, the Theta Ladies president, and she wants no part of the exclusive sorority scene. Camille, Alexis, and Angel are excited to be pledging and are up for any challenge. When it is time to announce new members, Camille and Alexis are accepted and Angel's left out in the cold. Despite her disappointment, Angel encourages her friends to enjoy themselves. But when the real reason for Angel's rejection comes to light, Alexis and Camille must choose: Do they break their commitment to their newfound "sisters" to take a stand for their sister at heart?

A Friend is Still A Friend  Sep 12, 2008
Fair-Weather Friends by Reshonda Tate Billingsley brings us back into the lives of Angel, Camille, Alexis and Jasmine. The Good Girlz, as they are known, have weathered many storms but their friendship has stood the test-of-time. Nothing could ever come between them or could it? The girls attend a school Step Show and are blown away by a performance, put on by The Thetas, a high school sorority. Immediately, Camille is convinced she wants to join and her focus is on getting the other girls interested. She knows that Alexis and Angel are shoo-ins. However, she assumes that Jasmine is going to take some convincing. Particularly bothersome to all of the girls is the fact that Tori, Jasmine's arch enemy, is the sorority's leader. After much convincing, all of the girls decide to give it a try and almost immediately problems start.

Jasmine has a confrontation with Tori and decides the sorority is not for her. Most surprisingly, Angel, the only Hispanic girl does not make the sorority for reasons not explained. All of the Good Girlz are surprised, considering Angel is the sweetest and most easygoing of the quartet. Angel immediately distances herself from the group. When it is discovered that the reason Angel was not accepted is because of her ethnicity, the friends and the whole school become involved. From that point the reader is introduced to a very real world of what happens when decisions are made based upon skin color and race. We are also allowed to see how hard it is for young people to make choices that are not necessarily popular ones. Ms. Billingsley does a wonderful job of giving us a full, realistic view of what can happen when friends feel betrayed and racism rears its ugly head. Fair-Weather Friends is recommended to all who enjoy entertaining, well-told stories, particularly teenagers.
