Goodreads: 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.
Ope’s Opinion: Corrinne was very whiny in the beginning of this book. I thought she was very self centered. Some times it takes a difficult situation to bring out the best in someone. There are always lessons to be learned in each event in life.
Corrinne’s attitude toward drinking really bothered me. She acted like most people did it and she was just staring high school. When Rider said he didn’t drink, she acted like he was weird. I don’t think I would want a young person to read this and think that it was acceptable.
I did like that the story was mostly about Corrinne and her friendships. There were boys involved, but that wasn’t the center of the story. Her family was great, especially her grandpa and her brother.
In the end, this was a good, easy read with lessons learned.
