Wonderfully written and plotted, this utterly charming Young Adult novel is like a contemporary “Pride & Prejudice” meets “The Princess Diaries”, with a healthy dose of Southern drama

Megan is an athletic, down-to-earth girl who would rather be riding horses on her family’s farm than attending a social event. But when her Southern belle mother secretly enters her as a debutante for the 2016 deb season in their hometown of Dallas, she’s furious – and has no idea what she’s in for. Megan’s attitude gets her on probation with their social chair, and she’s got a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she’ll get the boot and disgrace her family. The perk of being a debutante, of course, if going to parties, and it’s at one of these lavish affairs where Megan gets swept off her feet by the debonair and down-to-earth Hank Waterhouse. If only she didn’t have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her handsome but surly billionaire boyfriend, Megan thinks, being a deb might not be so bad after all. But that’s before she humiliates herself in front of a room full of ten-year-olds, becomes embroiled in a media-frenzy scandal, and gets punched in the face by another girl. The season has officially begun… and the drama is just getting started!
