On the other hand, Zora's story is a lot more satisfying than Mackenzie's, and yet my suspension of disbelief was a little broken. What would've been wrong with making her 10 (or even just 5 years) older? A fresh-out-of-high-school 18-year-old negotiating the biggest contract in sports history with a hard-hitter isn't just amazing, it's unbelievable. Still, if you are able to get past that, her story is pretty good and she shows up as a far more flawed character than Mackenzie, and thus a better one.
Basically, it's worth the read, but don't expect it to be as sharp and witty as Dirty Girls.
Mackenzie is juggling multiple jobs, including being a professional cheerleader (in Valdes-Rodriguez's world, not all it's cracked up to be). She takes photos on the side, but since that talent has never been encouraged by anyone except her aunt Rosie, she doesn't think it's a viable career option. Zora, meanwhile, is still hung up on her ex-husband, the one she represented at age 18, shooting them both to their own kind of superstardom, while raising his daughter alone. Zora is the more prickly character, the one it's harder to like, but whose struggles Valdes-Rodriguez does justice to, and who couldn't be charmed by Yardbird, 12 years her junior, who woos an older woman with a sly panache that makes him perhaps my favorite character in the book? Indeed, there are some slimy men here, and others who show their support by simply stepping back and letting the women see what they can do when not trying to live up to someone else's standards. If this is a fairy tale of a chick lit book, it's one where the heroines work their butts off to succeed, and earn every word of their happily ever afters.
