When her free-spirited mother dies in a tragic accident, sixteen-year-old Alexandria Lee is forced to leave her West Coast home and move in with a wealthy grandmother she's never known in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful if unwilling member of the Magnolia League-Savannah's long-standing debutante society. But white gloves and silk gowns are a far cry from the vintage t-shirts and torn jeans shorts she's used to.
Alex is the first in decades to question the Magnolia League's intentions, yet even she becomes entangled in their seductive world. The members enjoy youth, beauty and power...but at what cost? As Alex discovers a pact between the Magnolias and the Buzzards, a legendary hoodoo family, she discovers secrets-some deadly-hidden beneath the glossy Southern veneer.
New York Times bestselling author Katie Crouch's poignant and humorous voice shines in this enchanting and mysterious story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.
Why I haven't read it yet!
This is one of those books I got when Borders went under and I bought it pretty cheap. I had planned to read it, but never really got to it, so its been sitting on my shelf and taunting me. I love this cover and can't wait to read the story behind it.
What I plan on doing!
I am planning on reading The Magnolia League next week, I have two other books I have to read first though, so I'm hoping I can get to it!
What do you think about my plan?
So what do you think about what I plan on doing? Should I put the other two books I plan on reading on hold or I wait? Do you all like this cover as much as I do?
Let me know what you think!
(When I update this post, there will be a review and the dates I read this amazing book!!! This post was inspired by My Reading Pile blog, but it will be different in this way!!! )
