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.


My Thoughts:
I wasn’t sure that I would ever actually finish this book. I started it almost a year ago, and just couldn’t really get into it at the time. I’m not sure what changed, or if I am just in a different place to immerse myself in the story; but since I took it off the shelf I couldn’t put it down. I loved all of the characters, even Waverly, though she did irk my nerves a bit more than usual! I am really a sucker for City Girl meets small town life and really grows accustomed to it. The ending wasn’t what I was expecting, though I can see why the author took that route. I just wish that the story had gone on a little more and I could know if promises made were actually kept.
