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

Synopsis (from Goodreads

Pages: 352
Publisher: Hot Key Books 
Released: 4th of June 2015

When you've had enough of being good, sometimes you've got to try a little bad...

Jesse, Vicks and Mel couldn't be more different. Jesse, a righteous Southern gal who's as thoughtful as she is uptight, is keeping a secret that she knows will change her life forever. Vicks is a wild-child: seemingly cool, calm and collected on the outside, but inside she's furious at herself for being so anxious about her neglectful boyfriend. And Mel is the new girl in town. She's already been dismissed as just another rich kid, but all she wants is to get over some of her fears and find some true friends. 

But for all their differences, the girls discover they've got one thing in common - they're desperate to escape. Desperate to get the heck out of Niceville and discover their true 'badass' selves! Even if it's just for the weekend... One 'borrowed' car later, it's time to hit the road and head for Miami. Hearts will be broken, friendships will be tested, and a ridiculously hot stranger could change the course of everything.

What I Have to Say 

First things first, I completely adored this book. Not as much as Disreputable History as I don't think there are that many books that can reach that level of awesomeness. But I loved it in a fun road trip with a load of drama way. The characters were all great in their own ways though I really think that Mel was my favourite just for her meek, shy contrast to the others. 

The fights that the girls had were all really good developments to the plot and general bonding feel of the book. It didn't feel like they were put in there just for the sake of drama. Even the bit with the alligator felt like it worked well with the plot. 

This is the ultimate road trip book for this year. These three fantastic writers have added to the genre in a wonderful way and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.
