The Season

Author: Jonah Lisa Dyer
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Release Date: July 12, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

She can score a goal, do sixty box jumps in a row, bench press a hundred and fifty pounds…but can she learn to curtsey?

Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams, but she’s not a girly girl. So when her Southern belle mother secretly enters in the 2016 Dallas debutante season, she’s furious—and has no idea what she’s in for. When Megan’s attitude gets her on probation with the mother hen of the debs, she’s got a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she’ll get the boot and disgrace her family. The perk of being a debutante, of course, is going to parties, and it’s at one of these lavish affairs where Megan gets swept off her feet by the debonair and down-to-earth Hank Waterhouse. If only she didn’t have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her handsome but surly billionaire boyfriend, Megan thinks, being a deb might not be so bad after all. But that’s before she humiliates herself in front of a room full of ten-year-olds, becomes embroiled in a media-frenzy scandal, and gets punched in the face by another girl.

The season has officially begun…but the drama is just getting started.


Why I'm excited:
Even though the idea of a debutante season is both foreign and baffling to me, I think this sounds adorable and fun. I love a frothy drama--especially in the summer--so I'm definitely all over this.

  1. I do enjoy reading about debutantes occasionally, and this one sounds like fun. Here's mine: “THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE”

  2. For some reason this description reminds me of the Princess Diaries (the movie version). Sounds like something I'll definitely be picking up!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
