Summary:  Meet Corrinne. She’s living every girl’s dream in New York City - shopping sprees at Barney’s, open access to the best clubs and parties, and her very own horse at the country track. At least it was …
When Corrinne’s father is laid off, her world suddenly falls apart. Instead of heading to boarding school, she’s stripped of her credit cards and shipped off to the boonies of Texas to live with her grandparents. On her own in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the life she’s supposed to be living. She doesn’t care who she stomps on in the process. But when Corrinne makes an unlikely friend and discovers a total hottie at work, she begins to wonder if life B. R. - before the recession - was as perfect as it seemed.

My thoughts:
The beginning of this book was a little slow for me. Corrinne was snobbish and it made me think how far is going to take it just because she can’t buy a 1000 dollar dress every other day? But when Corrinne moves to Texas, she becomes smarter and a lot more humble. Where I Belong is a well crafted coming of age story, about finding your place in life, and learning that money is not the answer to everything. If you’re in the mood for a slow, light read, I would definitely recommend picking up Where I Belong.
