This book is pure entertainment. Silly, hilarious fun. I’ve suddenly realised how hard it is to review a book like this because I cannot lay out the details of some amazingly complex plot… or tell you about the deep philosophical journey you will be taken on… or talk about a rich new fantasy world. This book has none of those things. And yet, it is easily one of the most enjoyable books I’ve picked up in a long while. Rachel Hawkins definitely knows how to keep you glued to Harper’s story,it’s fast paced and makes you smile!
Rebel Belle is sheer perfection for what it is—yummy good brain candy. There are still real problems and obstacles to face, but you don’t become bogged down with trials and tribulations. If you’re looking for prophecies and crazy teenage witches and greek mythology woven with southern charm and likable characters,do not hesitate to read Rebel Belle!
