Rebel Belle

Rebel Belle - Rachel Hawkins Initial thoughts: When I first started reading Rebel Belle, I couldn't decide if it was meant to be a book of parody. Things were funny and ridiculously over the top with a rather witty character. The more I read though, the more I became inclined to believe that this wasn't meant to be a work of parody — just a fantasy book in good jest. Bonus points for the down-to-earth nature of the characters and the presence of adults who actually enforced curfew. Somehow though, I didn't really see the point of the plot and despite the cliffhanger, I have no interest in continuing with the sequel. Read this if you're looking for humorous fantasy. There aren't enough of those.
