Waiting on Wednesday #2: Belles

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

 My pick for this week is:

 Belles by Jen Calonita

Fifteen-year-old Isabelle Scott loves her life by the boardwalk on the supposed wrong side of the tracks in North Carolina. But when tragedy strikes, a social worker sends her to live with a long-lost uncle and his preppy privileged family. Isabelle is taken away from everything she's ever known, and, unfortunately, inserting her into the glamorous lifestyle of Emerald Cove doesn't go so well. Her cousin Mirabelle Monroe isn't thrilled to share her life with an outsider, and, in addition to dealing with all the rumors and backstabbing that lurk beneath their classmates' Southern charm, a secret is unfolding that will change both girls' lives forever.


The premise of this book sounds interesting.  Apparently this book has both the POV of the main girl and her mean cousin.  I think it will be cool to read both of these POVs.  

What are you Waiting On this Wednesday?



  1. I hope her mean cousin will be portrayed as a complex character. I think many YA novels lack that, and the rest of the novel sounds so great that I don't want it to lack on that department either. :)
