Description

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.show more

Our customer reviews

If I could describe this book with just 3 words, it would be charming, quick and fun. It's a story about Corrine and her struggle to adjust from her New York and I have a lot of money to her new manual everything life. Corrine's dad went almost bankrupt because of a bad investment and they all have to move to Texas with Corrine's grandparents for a simpler and cheaper life while her parents try to pick up the pieces back in New York. This situation was basically the end of the world for Corrine and she reacted the exact way a spoiled rich girl would. She didn't annoy me as much as I thought she would when I first started the book. She was witty, spoiled and very judgmental at first but as she started "living" the life in Broken Spoke, she became thoughtful, grateful and mature. The story was very realistic, cute, and fun. It was more about friendships and how Corrine's life is post-recession which kind of disappointed me. The cover is somewhat misleading to the contents of the book. But I really shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. I adored the book and finished it within a day and a half. A perfect read just for a day's entertainment. A definite unputdownable read from Gwendolyn Heasley.show more

Also reviewed on my blog, the Vintage Bookworm. (www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com) First off, don't be deceived by the cover. It's beautiful, but it makes it look like this story is all about love. It's not. I mean, don't think I don't love a good love story, because I do. But sometimes I like more than just a love story. There was some romance in this book, but it wasn't all that it was about. It was kind of the side part of it. I've been waiting to read this ever since seeing it on the Debut Author Challenge list. I looked it up and it sounded really good. When I was able to snag this at the library, I was very ecstatic and started reading it right away because I wanted a good, short contemporary to read. And it was great! I mean, I really liked it, but I didn't love, love it. If that makes sense. I mean, it kept you reading and you were done with 100 pages in a snap of a finger. You were sucked into Corrine's new life. The only thing that annoyed me to death was Corrine. She was such a brat! The way she treated people just made me want to smack her. I mean, yeah, it had to be really hard to move from New York city where you grew up all your life being rich (Must be nice!) and then in a short period being shipped to Texas to live with your grandparents and being put in public school, but still. She didn't have to be such a brat about it. I hated her constant whining about how her life sucked SO badly. But at least she grew up a bit by the end of the novel. She changed a lot for the better. I really liked the new Corrine. I really liked Kitsy, too. She was a really nice, fun person. I'd love to have a friend like her! And I really liked Bubby and Hands, they were funny. Rider, on the other hand, ugh! That is all I will say about that, I can just say I could tell how he was from the start. I really liked Corrine's Grandma and Grandpa too, they were fun and I wish I had grandparents like them. Overall, it was a fun book to read. The writing was good and I can't wait to read more from Heasley. I was on her website, like I always do after finishing a book, and I saw she is writing a story about Kitsy! I'm ecstatic over that! I mean, I really wish there was a sequel to this one, but reading with Kitsy as the main character will be really fun.show more
