The Grass is Always Greener
Jen Calonita will appear in person to share the release of The Grass is Always Greener, the third installment in her YA novel series, Belles.
Isabelle "Izzie" Scott is raised by her grandmother in a run-down house on the supposed wrong side of the tracks in North Carolina, but has always loved her less-than-charmed life by the beach. But when her grandmother moves into a nursing home, a social worker places Izzie with a politically prominent long-lost uncle and his family, taking her away from everything she's ever known. Unfortunately, inserting Izzie into the glamorous lifestyle of Emerald Cove doesn't go so well. Izzie is resented by her stuck-up cousin Mirabelle and at odds with the gossipy, backstabbing girls at her preppy school. Soon she learns that underneath their fancy lifestyle, her privileged new family has a secret she can't ignore.
