It’s 1986 and Rachael O’Brien is leaving Ohio for North Carolina and her first year of college. In between navigating classes, roommates, living in the south, her crazy parents, and boys, Rachael discovers an art forgery ring and sets out to prove what is happening and who is involved. Early on she figures out, mostly correctly, who the major players in the forgery ring are. As the reader, you get to go along with her as she searches for the evidence she needs to prove her hunches right.
I really enjoyed Deep Fried and Pickled. The only things I didn’t like about the book were the sheer number of drinking scenes (seriously, it seemed like these 18 year old girls spent more time drinking than in class) and Rachael’s obsession with talking about losing her virginity (it just wasn’t at all necessary). Other than that, it was a fun mind vacation book. I definitely recommend reading it!
