How to Be Bad - Book Review

Vicks, Mel, and Jesse -- three unlikely friends -- with one thing in common: they're trapped in a car trying to get as far away as possible from Niceville, Florida armed with only a battered copy of the Fantastical Florida guide book. Heartbreak, breaking and entering, sight-seeing, and more than a few fights about music choices later, the girls figure out that this road trip will mean more than they ever expected.
 
I really liked this book. The girls were totally relatable and I completely saw myself in Mel. (Yes, believe it or not, I was the good girl.) Anyways, the coolest part about this book is that three different authors wrote it together. I think that's the reason that the girls had such different voices. There's a really neat interview with the authors available at the L.A. Times about writing the book. (It's a little bit long, but worth it.) If you're looking for an escape, this is the book for you.
