Waiting on Wednesday: Where I Belong

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on.

Title: Where I Belong
Author: Gwendolyn Heasley
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date of Release: February 8, 2011

Goodreads Description: 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.

Why am I waiting? The cover looks adorable, and the premise is a reminder that it wasn't so long ago that we had the recession. I'm interested in seeing how Corrinne adjusts to her new lifestyle; and hopefully she'll be able to learn that money isn't everything.

  7. I am anxious to read some reviews on this one. The summary is interesting, but I have to admit every time I see this cover it reminds me of a Miley Cyrus movie.
