Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Rebel BelleHarper Price was having the best Homecoming ever.  She knew she had the crown in the bag, if only she hadn’t forgotten her lip gloss.  Now she has superpowers and has to protect the one person she doesn’t get along with: David Stark.  Her new powers are pretty awesome but why is he the one she has to protect?

Hawkins blends comic hijinks with Southern charm in her newest novel.  While I can’t say I was laughing the entire time, I will say I was smiling.  When I wasn’t smiling, I was caught up in the action.  Did you know stiletto heels make excellent defense weapons?  How about pools?

While some might think Harper is a bit shallow, I found Harper to be a strong young woman who knows who she is and what she likes.  I found her very well developed as a character.  David was a little less developed but still very well rounded for someone who discovers his world is not what it seems.  Ryan and Bee round out the most important supporting cast and I have a feeling they will be more important as time goes on.  Be ready for a cliffhanger ending.  There should be more Rebel Belle books coming our way.

If you read and enjoyed the Hex Hall series, then you will love this one and if you didn’t read them– head to the shelf and grab them.
