Megan McKnight is a soccer star with Olympic dreams, a history major, and an expert at the three Rs of Texas (readin', ridin', and ropin'), but she's not a girly girl. So when her Southern belle mother secretly enters her as a debutante for the 2016 deb season in their hometown of Dallas, 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 curtsy 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 that 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 10-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.

"A fun, modern take on Pride and Prejudice." (Jojo Moyes, best-selling author of Me Before You)
Really loved this book. Has a classic style and form, but set in modern day Dallas. Great summer read for everyone and recommend for tweens, teens and college. Story of Megan who doesn't like to be judged on her outward appearance and actions, yet she is quick to judge others. She learns not to judge so quickly and how to show the world who she really is.
Megan of course!
She performed well.
Lots of laughter, and plenty of touching moments.
I liked this story, but since this book is aimed at a teen audience, I was dismayed that too much time was spent suggesting that all girls have casual sex without any consequences as long as it's done with a condom!!!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The characters were so fun and entertaining. I laughed out loud in some places because the narrator beought out each moment. If you are looking for something to lighten your spirits this is it.!
