Where I Belong

February 1st, 2011
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.
When I first saw this novel on the HarperTeen catalog a few months ago, I immediately added it to my TBR. Something about it just seems so irresistible to me... The blurb said fans of Susane Colasanti and Sarah Dessen will enjoy it, and I love them both, so I have a very strong hunch I'll love this book. It's one of the 2011 debuts I'm most excited for!
