Wish List Wednesday

Debutantes by Cora Harrison, August 2, 2012. Published by Pan Macmillan Children's.
It’s 1923 and London is a whirl of jazz, dancing and parties. Violet, Daisy, Poppy and Rose Derrington are desperate to be part of it, but stuck in an enormous crumbling house in the country, with no money and no fashionable dresses, the excitement seems a lifetime away.

Luckily the girls each have a plan for escaping their humdrum country life: Rose wants to be a novelist, Poppy a jazz musician and Daisy a famous film director. Violet, however, has only one ambition: to become the perfect Debutante, so that she can go to London and catch the eye of Prince George, the most eligible bachelor in the country.

But a house as big and old as Beech Grove Manor hides many secrets, and Daisy is about to uncover one so huge it could ruin all their plans—ruin everything—forever.
Why: I actually just came across this one while on Goodreads and the cover caught my eye. So, while I was drown in by the cover of Debutantes, the plotline it was has me interested in reading it because it sounds like it will be full of mystery and scheming.
