YA Pick of the Week: The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
This is the world Camellia's been born into, and for her it is not enough to simply be a Belle; she must be the Favorite--the Belle assigned to the palace. However, the palace has its own dangers: a princess who has been in a coma for years, her younger sister who wants power and physical changes that will test Camellia's strength, and a secret plot that will change everything.
Dhonielle Clayton creates a remarkable world, perfect for fans of the Uglies series or The Selection. This book starts off a little slow, but it lays the groundwork really well for a sequel--and I, for one, am excited to see what will happen next!
