Cover of the Week (14)

Cover of the Week is a weekly feature at The Hiding Spot, in which I share a cover that gives me that swoony feeling.

Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley
Description (from GoodReads):
Corrinne Corcoran’s upscale Manhattan life is perfectly on track—until her father announces he’s been laid off and she’s shipped off to Broken Spoke, Texas, to live with her grandparents. All alone in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the glamorous life she’s supposed to be living. But as she grudgingly adjusts—making new friends and finding romance along the way—this city girl begins to realize that life without credit cards and shopping sprees may not be as bad as it seems....

In this sparkling debut that flawlessly balances romance and humor, readers will grow to love sharp and sassy Corrinne as she goes on her totally reluctant but completely irresistible journey of self-discovery.

The first time I saw this cover, all I could think was cowboy. And then plaid.Since I happen to like cowboys and plaid very much. Once I had calmed down, I started to appreciate other aspects, like how the models' heads are tilted toward one another, but they still sit a respectable distance apart. I may be wrong, but this seems to hint that there may be some romantic tension.

I've been on a bit of a contemporary YA kick, so I was so thrilled to find this upcoming debut. It may have taken me a bit longer to find it without such an amazing cover, but I think I would have been pumped about it regardless!


  1. Sounds like a bit of a clichéd plot. Lucky for me, I eat up a good cliché, lol. Cover looks great.

  2. Aw, it sounds nice. And the cover is so so beautiful indeed. I just loved the colors of it and the models, how they posed, you know. Hmmm. Seems super great. Thanks, Sara! :)

  3. Ooh I love everything about this cover! And it sounds like a super good read. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I had to laugh at "Cowboy." LOL - Great cover - you called this one right. :)

  5. LOVE this cover, I agree cowboys + plaid= awesome :)

  6. I love it too! And the story sounds excellent. Off to add it to the old TBR.


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
