Description

Meet Corrinne. She's living every girl's dream in New York City—shopping sprees at Barneys, open access to the best clubs and parties, and her own horse at the country club. Her perfect life is perfectly on track. At least it was. . . .

When Corrinne's father is laid off, her world suddenly falls apart. Instead of heading to boarding school, she's stripped of her credit cards and shipped off to the boonies of Texas to live with her grandparents. On her own in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the life she's supposed to be living. She doesn't care who she stomps on in the process. But when Corrinne makes an unlikely friend and discovers a total hottie at work, she begins to wonder if her life B.R.—before the recession—was as perfect as it seemed.

Publishers Weekly Review

Dec 20, 2010 – The recession hits Corrinne Corcoran's wealthy family hard in Heasley's first novel. Corrinne's father loses his job and moves to Dubai to find work, leaving her mother behind to sell their Manhattan apartment while 16-year-old Corrinne and her younger brother, Tripp, head to Broken Spoke, Tex., her mother's long (and best) forgotten hometown. Corrinne is horrified to trade her ritzy, snobby, Gossip Girl–style life for the slow-paced, carbohydrate-rich world of her grandparents. The moral of Heasley's story is one familiar to any number of romantic comedies on page and on screen: namely, that smalltown life is every bit as rewarding as the bustle of the city if given half a chance. This premise results in a predictable story, as Heasley dishes out one smalltown cliché after another in an effort to deliver some tension. Painful manure episodes aside, Heasley also offers plenty of Texas boys, football parties, and a rodeo as city girl turns country girl and learns some lessons about family and good old-fashioned fun. A sweet, by-the-numbers romance with a substantial dose of corny humor. Ages 12–up.

Where I belong

This book was a short read, or maybe it was the fact that I couldn't put it down! The story behind this book is amazing," things aren't always what you think they are" is what I got from it. Being born and raised in Texas I could relate to this book completely and our Texans ways. This book is a great sentimental read! I loved it!
