Girls in Trucks (2008)

In this coming-of-age novel, Sarah Walters is a reluctant Camellia Society debutante in South Carolina. The society teaches children of a certain social standing how to fox trot, greet adults and wear white gloves - and be prepared for a socially acceptable marriage. The chapters progress in a series of vignettes, from the death of a cousin and worshipping her older sister Eloise who dates a black man, to moving to New York with her best friend Charlotte to work as an editorial assistant and her obsession with preppy Max. Then a series of tragic events bring her home to Charleston. Reminds me a lot of Melissa Bank's The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing.
