The Daughters Break the Rules

Joanna Philbin
After leaking a story about the family business, impetuous high school freshman Carina Jurgensen is cut off by her billionaire father. Always resourceful, she fibs her way into a job as a party planner for New York's annual Silver Snowflake Ball. But when Carina finds out that the party committee expects favors and freebies from her dad's A-list connections, a choice must be made: Does she get real about her downgraded status, or pretend she's still the ultimate heiress?
Best friends and fellow daughters of celebrities Lizzie Summers, Carina Jurgensen and Hudson Jones are back in the second stylish and heartfelt Daughters novel. While the first book in this new series focused on Lizzie, this second book is all about Carina. Although her dad is one of the richest men in America, her teenage life is surprisingly normal. She has crushes, fights with her best friends, and has to deal with the "mean girls." The Daughters books are great realistic fiction, everyone can relate to the drama of being a teenager. But Philbin throws in the splashes of what a life in the big city with famous parents would be like. A fun and light read, perfect for the beach or curling up with.
