Waiting on Wednesday : Where I Belong

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Where I Belong
by Gwendolyn Heasley

release date: February 1st, 2011 by HarperTeen

description from goodreads:
Corrinne Corcoran’s upscale Manhattan life is perfectly on track—until her father announces he’s been laid off and she’s shipped off to Broken Spoke, Texas, to live with her grandparents. All alone in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the glamorous life she’s supposed to be living. But as she grudgingly adjusts—making new friends and finding romance along the way—this city girl begins to realize that life without credit cards and shopping sprees may not be as bad as it seems....

In this sparkling debut that flawlessly balances romance and humor, readers will grow to love sharp and sassy Corrinne as she goes on her totally reluctant but completely irresistible journey of self-discovery.

My thoughts: Okay, so admittedly, this storyline sounds familiar (anyone ever watch a show a few years back called Darcy's Wild Life? hehe, used to watch it with my daughter.) Still and all, the old "fish out of water" is a tale that I tend to fall for the charm of every time. More than anything, what draws me to this one is that fantastic cover! The beautiful country setting, the intimate way they are leaning in close like she is about to whisper in his ear, the sweet yellow dress and heels. I love it all!!

  6. This does look like a good book. I imagine it would be hard for someone used to the big city to wind up in a rural area. I have a feeling there will be plenty of humorous scenes involved. Nice pick!

  14. The cover is pretty =) I'm a hard sell on the idea that the country is better than the city though lol. Sounds like a cute summer read though =)
