Where I Belong
Meet Corrinne. She's living every girl's dream in New York Cityshopping 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 recessionwas as perfect as it seemed.
About the Author
Gwendolyn Heasley is a graduate of Davidson College and the University of MissouriColumbia, where she earned her master's degree in journalism. When she was a little girl, she desperately wanted to be the next Ann M. Martin, so she's grateful that the recession rendered her unemployed and made her chase her nearly forgotten dream. Gwendolyn now lives in New York City, teaches in New Jersey, and eats too much mac and cheese for an adult. She is also the author of Where I Belong.
