The Lovereading4Kids comment
A provocative, stimulating and ultimately heartwarming story about three girls on a weekend road trip in Florida, who develop their friendship as the miles tick by. Each chapter is written in the first person by either Jesse (don’t forget the ‘e’), Vicks or Mel. The three very different girls may decide to try a little ‘How To Be Bad’, however at heart, they are three thoughtful, affectionate and quite normal teens, experiencing the difficulties that life occasionally flings in the way and getting by as best they can. The ending rolls to a conclusion far too quickly, leaving an “I want more” feeling, hopefully another novel is on the cards. It’s fascinating to learn in the great ‘extras’ section at the end, how the three authors, Emily Lockhart, Lauren Myracle and Sarah Mlynowski decided to write this novel. Recommended for older teens and young adults, this collaboration most definitely works, it results in a funny, warm and fabulously quirky story. ~ Liz Robinson

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