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

When Jesse, Vicks, and Mel jump into Jesse's mom's Opel for a weekend road trip, it's all for different reasons. Jesse is desperate to escape her mom and the problems at home. Vicks wants to see her long distance boyfriend--who hasn't made any contact in two weeks. And Mel desperately wants a piece of the seemingly easygoing friendship that Jesse and Vicks share. The only thing these three girls have in common is a job at The Waffle House. Despite that, will the road see them through their personal issues, hot dogs, alligators, hurricanes, pirate hotels, Epcot, some really bad choices and some really great times and on into the land of friendship?

HarperCollins has brought the best of the best together to create this fully wonderful, hilarious, and heartfelt novel. Lockhart, Myracle, and Mylnowski are a delight. Their characters are imperfect, passionate, witty, and memorable; their plotline quirky and exciting as the girls experience their ups and downs. This is a book that will remind you of what friendship is truly about as the words roll right off the pages and straight into your heart.
How to be Bad will be available from HarperCollins May 6, 2008!

I loved this book! It's one of those feel good novels that you just HAVE to tell your girlfriends about. The charaters are complex yet easy to connect to. I found myself relating to each one of the girls but all in different ways. Definately a great read. And the cover is totally Badass. I must agree with you Compulsive Reader... this book totally rocks.

This is my first time reading any of these 3 authors. I'm just at the beginning of the road trip, but I'm enjoying How to be Bad very much so far, and I hope I like it as much as other readers do. Plus I love the title!
