Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Harper Price is not your typical Southern belle. When the ancient powers of a Paladin are passed on to her during Homecoming, her life changes instantly. According to the legend of Charlemagne, a Paladin is a guardian charged with protecting a particular being. In Harper's case, this being is none other than her sworn enemy, David Stark. As her new abilities grow, they threaten to ruin her relationships with her parents, her boyfriend, and her best friend. Armed with the advice of those who have lived with this responsibility, along with the best knowledge the Internet has to offer, Harper faces her uncertain future with her pearls and agility skills at the ready, prepared for whatever adventure may lie ahead. With Rebel Belle, Hawkins provides a soft place for readers of her "Hex Hall" series (Hyperion) to land. Rife with legendary beings and their accumulated lore, the novel presents a worthwhile heroine in Harper Price. Overscheduled and overly responsible, she is a familiar character to teens, and by the end of the book, Hawkins convinces them that she may be the perfect recipient of the power of a Paladin.—Colleen S. Banick, Westport Public Schools, CT

From Booklist

As if superachiever Harper does not have enough on her plate, she finds herself at the center of a murderous paranormal plot—and during the homecoming dance, no less. Turns out Harper is a Paladin, a legendary character bound to protect the Oracle, an all-powerful visionary who can foresee the future. When the Oracle turns out to be her geeky and annoying classmate David Stark, well, that’s a sign that most folks are not who they seem to be in this fantasy romp. The southern private-school milieu, which plays out like a snappy satire on college-prep activities and the all-important cotillion ritual, is juxtaposed with darkly fantastical forces to provide humor and spunk, enlivening the story and recalling Hawkins’ Hex Hall titles. That Harper also lives in the shadow of her deceased older sister adds a layer of emotional complexity. Mainly, though, the romance, coming-of-age aspects, and a well-drawn heroine with a crackling wit will lure in readers. Grades 8-11. --Anne O'Malley

The Hex Hall series is one of my all-time favorite YA series and ever since I heard about Rebel Belle, I had been dying to read it. Rebel Belle is just what you would expect from Rachel Hawkins: a fun, hilarious adventure with an incredibly witty protagonist. Rebel Belle is unlike anything I've ever read before and it is a perfect blend of romance, the paranormal, mythology, and humor. I can't emphasis enough how much fun I had while reading RB and how much I enjoyed it.

Rebel Belle isn't your average paranormal story. It all starts when Harper undergoes a weird, traumatizing experience at Homecoming. Instead of reveling in Homecoming, Harper is attacked in the ladies' room and she is mysteriously given super powers. Harper is now a paladin and her mission is to protect her enemy, David Stark. Rebel Belle is filled with magic, romance, and wit, this is a must-read for fans of Hex Hall for sure.

I loved everything about Harper Price from her no non-sense Southern personality to her intense determination to be the best at everything. Price is absolutely hilarious in all the right ways and readers will immediately fall in love with her. I really enjoyed her snarky humor and Harper always managed to put a smile on my face with her attitude that was a mix between a Southern Belle and an Amazonian warrior. Harper is an intense character and she's the type of character that doesn't take no for an answer, I absolutely love reading about strong female heroines like Harper.

David Stark is my favorite kind of protagonist, he's wonderfully nerdy. David is the head of the school newspaper, he loves to wear sweaters, and he always knows exactly what to say. David is such an interesting character and I absolutely loved reading about his interactions with Harper Price.

For only being a junior in high school, Harper Price seems to have it all. She's popular. She is the SGA president for her high school. She is a cheerleader. She is elected homecoming queen. And on top of all that, she is quite an intelligent young lady preparing for college. Beauty and brains? Why of course I'm going to read this one! Everything in her life... well mostly everything is perfect until the night of the homecoming dance when she finds herself in a weird situation that leaves her with superpowers. Her goal: To protect the kid in her school who she despises the most. She might even have to die for him one day.

When first reading the synopsis for this book, I thought that it would be an interesting book that I wouldn't want to put down. A debutant with bad ass superpowers? It seemed like a thrilling tale. Unfortunately, I couldn't have been more wrong. I found myself making excuses and doing other things just so I could get a break from reading this book. It's that bad.

I had a lot of questions while reading this book. If you haven't read it, look away from the next paragraph because there will be some spoilers. Sorry.

First of all, Harper finds herself trapped in the bathroom while a murder is going on. Seems legit. Then, she is forced to murder her teacher. Okay, so after Harper kills Dr. Dupont, it is mentioned that there is a substitute teacher once. Wouldn't you think the school would address the disappearance/murders of one of their teachers? That kind of bothered me. It is a hole in the plot that I think should have at least been mentioned again. Also, it is mentioned that Harper's sister was killed a lot, so I'm guessing that is supposed to be more important than lead on?

You might not know this about me, but I’m actually not a huge girly girl. I don’t really like pink, I don’t wear makeup, I wouldn’t dream of casually wearing heels, and I think beauty pageants are just ridiculous. Instead, I usually rock jeans and a nerdy t-shirt, spend my time reading fantasy books or gaming with my guy friends, and I swear worse than my sixteen year old brother. So just looking at this cover had me a little hesitant, and when I read the summary, I was ready to chuck this book in the fire. But, through the sheer power of will and the overwhelming fear of being murdered by my reader friends if I didn’t finish this book, I started the first page. And didn’t put the book down once. Yeah, you heard me. I busted this book in a few hours, finishing at about one in the morning, very alarmed to see it was that late because I hadn’t even noticed the time passing. I liked this book. I liked this book with it’s pink cover and perky heroine and silly dresses and lighthearted magic stuff. It was actually kind of… cute.

In Rebel Belle, we meet Harper, the sort of girl that I probably would have avoided in high school. She’s head of practically every club or leadership related thing in the school, she says cutesy little things instead of swear words, she spent over a thousand dollars on her Homecoming dress and she keeps her lips perfectly glossed at all times. Right off, I did not like Harper one bit. But as the pages flew by, she started to grow on me. Under that perfect, perky exterior, Harper had a tough, loyal, fun side to her that I adored. She ends up getting super Paladin powers from her janitor, and suddenly she can kick ass. Like, really kick ass. Like, she stabbed someone in the throat with her heel. Suddenly, girly shoes became a lot more interesting to me.
