How to Be Bad 
When you've had enough of being good, sometimes you've got to be a little bad...
Jesse, Vicks and Mel could not be more different.
Jesse is as thougthful as she is uptight, and keeping a secret she knows will change her life forever.
Vicks is a wild-child, seemingly o so confident, but also anxious about her absent boyfriend.
Mel is the new girl in town- the rich kid, needing to get over some of her fears and find some friends.
But Jesse, Vicks and Mel have one thing in common: they're desperate to get the heck out of Niceville and discover their true badass selves. One 'borrowed' car later and it's time to hit the road.
Let the bad times roll...

My Review
Thoughts on the book: How to Be Bad tells the story of Jesse, Vicks and Mel's spur of the moment road trip to Miami to see Vick's boyfriend who has recently moved away to start university. All three girls are very different and properly normally really wouldn't take a trip like this together but for some reason they all feel really brave and take the plunge. Their road trip has all the normal moments like famous sights, car troubles, junk food, bad weather, making new friends but also friendship bust ups, romantic bust ups, romantic hook ups and some great soul searching. Each of the three main character learn something new about not only themselves but also about the two other people who are on the road trip with them.
I hate to admit this but I have never actually read any books by the three authors who wrote How to Be Bad. I know, I know it's amazing write that I haven't read any of their books but here's another secret I hadn't really heard much about any of them either. Shocker I know. So when I learned that each character was written by a different author I couldn't pick out which author wrote which because they all did such an amazing job, that had I not know they were written by different authors I would have thought one author wrote the lot because they all seem to have the same writing style.  

Favourite quote/moment:
“You think Tide is better, or All?'
'Which has a prettier box?' I ask.
'I don't want a pretty box. I want a dude box.'
Uh-huh,' I deadpan. 'You want a dude box of laundry detergent.'
'Yes, I do.'
'Good luck with that.”
