Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story and the girls are caught up in a flurry of talk-show appearances and newspaper interviews. They’ve put on a happy public face, but someone is leaking their true feelings to the press. While it seems like the world is watching their every move, at least they have each other.
But with cotillion season right around the corner, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has always dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown - now if only she could find an escort. Izzie, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove, and it’s seeming ever more impossible with EC mean-girls, young and old, doing their best to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, though, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect - and secret initiations to complete. As if sophomore year wasn’t hard enough!
It’s time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.

I read and review Young Adult lit!
Winter White wasn’t bad…it was just more of the same.
It felt a little pointless to me. The Belles are still at odds, and still won’t work together. The family is still in turmoil and still can’t manage to get ahead of the agents working against them. There are still more social events that have to be shopped for and both Belles are still having problems finding that perfect dress.
Same old, same old.
I’m sure most readers who loved the first and love the rich girl drama genre will continue happily through Winter White and onto the third book.
But I need change, I need progress, I need some character arcs and some plot development.
I won’t be continuing on with the series but, as I said above, there is clearly an audience for this book and I wish them all the best.
Shortly after listening to "Belles" and proclaiming that I would like for it to be the first in a series, I discover that it is! If you enjoyed Belles then I definitely recommend Winter White. Again Julia Whelan does a great job with the narration.
More intrigue surrounding main character
Not as exciting as 1st book in this series
Performance was good
