Waiting on Wednesday



Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
Published February 1st 2011 by HarperTeen


From the Publisher:
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.


I am really looking forward to reading this book! I was lucky enough to get an ARC and it should be here any day. When I read the synopsis I literally laughed out loud. I live in Austin, Texas and the Broken Spoke is one of the oldest honky tonks in Texas. (it's a lot of fun!) In Where I Belong, Corrinne moved to a town called Broken Spoke. I had to write the publisher and beg for a book. I think the cover is sweet and I can't wait to dive in!

  4. Great pick! This sounds like a sweet read =) Gotta say, as a country girl who happily moved to the city, I have major sympathy for poor Corrinne ;-)
