Release Date: 04/10/2012
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.
So.. umm.. WOW.. (I guess that's all I can say)
The book Belles really widened my horizons. Really, never knew people could backstab like that. Really, just, Wow!
The story starts with Isabelle Scott who moves to live with her rich uncle in Emerald Cove because her grandma has Alzheimer's. Emerald Cove is all preppy and stuff and she doesn't really fit in. The story goes on from there.
Now Belles has tons of drama. LIKE, DRAMA.. It taught me how shallow some girls can really be (just reminding you, this is fictional *whew*). Really, the queen bee Savannah got everyone wrapped around her perfectly manicured fingers. Ugh.. just school drama, y'know. Savannah is such a bitch; she's just jealous 'cause she thinks her boyfriend likes Izzie.
Belles has got everything! With backstabbing southern belles, high school rich people drama, stealing a million-dollar necklaces, and cute boys, Belles by Jen Calonita is a must-read!
