Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins is a story about, well, a southern belle named Harper Price who thrives on being the most perfect girl in her town. On homecoming night, Harper is determined to win homecoming queen, but sadly forgets her lipgloss. As she applies it in the bathroom, she hears Mr. Hall, a middle aged janitor for the school, burst in, with a gash across is stomach. Harper, terrified, watches as he dies in her arms, and at the same moment, her history teacher, Mr. DuPont, marches in with a blade in his hand. Harper’s life is about to change in a big way.
