How to be Bad by E. Lockhart, Sarah Mlynowski, and Lauren Myracle


Summary: Sometimes it doesn't matter where you're going, since getting there is half the fun.

Jesse. Vicks. Mel.

Three girls who couldn't be more different.

But all three of them want the same thing, to get out of Niceville, Florida.

Vicks, the wild child.
Her boyfriend left for college and isn't returning her calls.

Mel, the good girl.
All she really wants, is for everyone to like her.

Jesse, the all-around christian.
She has discovered a life changing secret.

Each has their own reason for getting into Jesse's mom's station wagon to hit the highway.

They're Miami bound with only three main things.

Vicks's Guidebook call Fantastic Florida, Jesse's map, and Mel's mom's credit card.

Friendships will be tested. Hearts broken.

One hot stranger could change everything.

When everything is said and done, Mel, Vicks, and Jesse won't only have a road trip to tell their grandchildren, they'll have friends for life.

That is, if they don't kill each other along the way.

Rating: 4 STARS

Review: I really enjoyed How to be Bad. I think that it was very fun and funny. It really made me want to go on a road trip with my two best friends(: How to be Bad has a lot of little stories all in one. Jesse and her mom. Vicks and her boyfriend. Mel and her past/herself. It was really cool to see how all of these stories developed and then in turn, it became part of everyone else's story too. Each girl has a different reason for going on the trip, and from the beginning you know their reason, but that doesn't take anything away from the story. I'm really not sure how to really explain this book. It's hard to explain. But, it's told from three points of view, so each chapter is told from a different characters point of view. So, at the beginning of each chapter you have to pay attention, sometimes that's hard because you just want to keep reading, you don't want to stop at all. If you don't you have to go back, which I found myself doing many times(: All in all I really liked this book(: I think more people should read it, I haven't seen many reviews out there for it! I would definitely read How to be Bad again.

This one reminds me of Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. It should be pretty good though, considering the three authors writing fro mthe three POVs. :D
