Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story, and while Izzie and Mira have each put on a happy public face, someone is leaking their true feelings to the press. It seems as if the world is watching their every move, but at least the girls have each other.My review of Belles
With cotillion season right around the corner, however, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown forever--now if only she had an escort... Izzie, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove, which seems ever more impossible with EC mean girls, young and old, trying to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect... and secret initiations to complete?
It's time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.
Winter White is a continuation of the story that began in Belles. While Belles was told mainly from Izzie's point of view, Winter White is from Mirabelle's. The girls are still adjusting to their new relationship as half-sisters as well as the accompanying media attention. Added to that is the stress and drama of preparing for their debut at the Emerald Cove Cotillion Club. There was pledging, rush, initiation, dresses and projects to be completed. And of course there are boys!
This story is an easy, fun book to read. It opens up the world of politics and high society through the eyes of teenage girls. There is a moral to the story but it is wrapped in cotton candy and pretty dresses so it is easy to take.
This is suitable for all ages and I would recommend it.
