Other Editions of This Title:
From the authors of ttyl, Bras & Broomsticks, and The Boyfriend List come three unforgettable characters--and one exhilarating novel
Vicks is the wild child whose boyfriend has gone suspiciously quiet since he left for college; Mel is the newcomer desperate to be liked; and Jesse will do anything to avoid a life-altering secret. Each one has her own reason for wanting to get the heck out of their nowheresville town, even just for the weekend. So they climb into Jesse's mom's "borrowed" station wagon and head south.
Hearts will be broken, friendships will be tested, and a ridiculously hot stranger could change the course of everything.
Praise For How to Be Bad…
“Whip-smart dialogue and a fast-moving, picaresque plot that zooms from lump-in-the-throat moments to all-out giddiness will keep readers going, and it’s a testimony to how real these girls seem that the final chapters are profoundly satisfying rather than tidy.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The authors’ styles blend seamlessly, folding three characters’ distinct voices into a funny, poignant story about facing your troubles with friends at your side.”
