I thought this was an outstanding book! It was a good read ( it wasn’t super easy to read but it wasn’t like Harvard essays) it made me think too. I think this book also makes me think sort of like princesses (in cotillion). Personally I think all of Jen Calonitas’ books are AMAZING! Especially ‘sleep away girls’ and her series: ‘my secret Hollywood life’ I think both of those are ‘must-reads’ if you just adored this book as I did myself. Thanks Jen Calonita!!! I hope the readers reading this find this review helpful. Check it out!
From School Library Journal Gr 7-10-Calonita continues the drama of sophomores Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe, who discover that they are not cousins after all but half sisters. Their mutual father is running for political office in North Carolina and his opponents will stop at nothing to exploit the scandal. The Monroe family is bouncing from one interview to the next, trying to rally together, despite the strained relationship between the siblings and their dad. As the girls prepare for cotillion, they face their own struggles. Mira’s former best friend has ostracized her and the one boy she wants to date is clueless about her feelings for him. Meanwhile Izzie’s relationship with Brayden heats up only to be sidelined by his disapproving mother. When Izzie meets Brayden’s rebellious sister, she thinks she’s met the one person in Emerald Cove who gets her-except that his sister has an agenda of her own. To heighten the drama, someone’s been feeding lies about the Monroe family to the press. Winter White is an engaging sequel to Belles (Little, Brown, 2012) but can be read as a stand-alone. Readers invested in the lives of these characters will want to continue with this saga. Somewhat predictable, but fun.-Kimberly Garnick Giarratano, Rockaway Township Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Winter White (Belles) Paperback – October 29, 2013 by Jen Calonita (Author) Review
This book probably deserved a better ending. I personally loved the book! Can’t wait to read the next one! You rock, Jen Calonita! -Read Reviews-
I have all three books of the Belles series. They are a good read for adolescents and even school teachers of literature.
