summary: 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.
I absolutely hated snobby Corinne so much, she didn’t appreciate anything. But I totally understand her point though, going from being rich and being able to go shopping anytime she wanted, to going to a very small town in Texas with nothing.
Still she should respect people more.
I have to admit, I thought I was going to like this book a lot more than I did. I saw the cute cover and immediately was drawn in.
Although being in recession really taught Corinne a great lesson. Not only did she not respect her parents she didn’t respect herself. Her and her brother (Tripp) both left their lives in New York behind. Corinne has a hard time adjusting to her small house, living with her grandparents, no malls, and a little school where she meets some interesting people.
She learns what friendship, gratitude and love really is.
At the end of the book, she finally makes up her mind about the boy that she actually likes, and then she finds out she is going back to New York. It kind of made me frustrated because that’s how it ended and it never told us what happened next. Did they stay in touch?
This story was a great story about accepting the tough situations we face in life. It was a light and fast paced book. So if you’re in the mood to make some tea and cozy up with your favorite blanket, this is the book for you. I hope to see more from this author4/5 stars
