The clues are:

Takes place in Baton Rouge, LA.

Narrated by or about a girl.

Might start with the letter "P".

Any guesses?

Thanks, but I don't think that was it.

I believe it has a one word title, starting with a "P" or maybe a "T".

@djjd62,
That might be it -- if someone said it fast so it sounded like "Partamme".

I'll check out your link a bit more -- I'm trying to get the house cleared out of the Friday after school crowd of knuckleheads......

@djjd62,
I guess that could be it since it is short stories that weave together.

I get the feeling this mystery book is more of a story book -- a read it in 15 minutes sort of thing.

Thank you! I'm going to look for it so that I can see how long/short each story is. If they're short this might be the book.

@CalamityJane,
Thanks for looking CJane but I don't think that's it.

This is definately a southern story and I know for sure it takes place in Baton Rouge.

I can say authoritatively that it is definitely not this Guy Clark song:



I'm gonna leave Texarkana
I'm goin' down to Louisiana
I'm gonna try my luck in Baton Rouge
I'm gonna follow ol red river down
Till I see the lights of town I ain't gonna get no sleep in Baton Rouge

Chorus

Baton Rouge Baton Rouge
I'm gonna get me some alligator shoes
Baton Rouge Baton Rouge
I'm gonna wear `em out in Baton Rouge

It was a Texas girl that broke my heart
Then she tore my truck apart
I guess I'll get me another in Baton Rouge
I like Crawfish I like rice
I like girls that treat you nice
I'm gonna find me one in Baton Rouge

Chorus

I'm gonna learn to walk that walk
I'm gonna learn to talk that talk
I'm gonna learn to dance in Baton Rouge
Ain't life just like a cul-de-sac
I'm a Texas boy and I'm goin' back
Soon as I catch my breath in Baton Rouge

Chorus

I'm gonna strut my stuff in Baton Rouge
I'm gonna cool my heels in Baton Rouge
