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

Three girls who couldn’t be more different have one goal on mind: to get the heck out of Dodge. Well, Niceville, Florida, actually. But it might as well be called Nowheresville. Vicks is the wild-child fry cook whose boyfriend left for college and isn’t returning any of her calls; Mel, the good girl in expensive jeans who just wants everyone to like her, and Jesse , the trailer-dwelling human mortality meter who’s discovered a life-altering secret.

Each has her own reason for climbing into Jesse’s mom’s beat-up station wagon and hitting the highway for a weekend trip, whether she knows it or not. Armed only with Vick’s ancient, battered copy of a guidebook called Fantastical Florida, a map Jesse picked up with her dwindling funds, and Mel’s mom’s credit card, they’re Miami-bound. Hearts will be broken, friendships will be tested, and a ridiculously hot stranger could change the course of everything. And if they don’t kill each other first, Vicks, Mel, and Jesse will not only have a road trip to remember, they’ll have friends for life.

How to be Bad was a wonderful story written by three amazing authors. The story was told from three different points of view and I really loved that. Mel, Vicks and Jesse were three unique fun characters and I didn’t want the story to end. I loved that they were all different but were still able to work through there differences and become great friends. The premise of this story was fun and I personally would love to go on a summer road trip with some of my friends.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Lauren M., Sarah M., and E. Lockhart’s other books. This book is defiantly a great summer beach read.
