"Fifteen-year-old Isabelle Scott loves her life by the boardwalk on the supposed wrong side of the tracks in North Carolina. But when tragedy strikes, a social worker sends her to live with a long-lost uncle and his preppy privileged family. Isabelle is taken away from everything she’s ever known, and, unfortunately, inserting her into the glamorous lifestyle of Emerald Cove doesn’t go so well. Her cousin Mirabelle Monroe isn’t thrilled to share her life with an outsider, and, in addition to dealing with all the rumors and backstabbing that lurk beneath their classmates’ Southern charm, a secret is unfolding that will change both girls’ lives forever."

I have to be honest this is one of the books, that I judge it by the cover. From the cover I thought this would be a typical girly-girl story. Belles is so much more than. Its the story of Izzie Scott a girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Having her world turned up side down. To find something she never knew she had.
Read this book if you have the guts to do it!! I loved it. Cannot wait for Winter Belles, to see where Izzie and the Monroe's go next.
P.S. the ending was very shocking!!
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley!!
