Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)





Synopsis (from Amazon):   If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn't jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe "opportunity" isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: "Lied to Our Parents"). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up "Skipping School" (#3), "Buying a Hot Tub" (#4), and, um, "Harboring a Fugitive" (#7) is a mystery to them. To get through the year, April will have to juggle a love triangle, learn to do her own laundry, and accept that her carefully constructed world just might be falling apart . . . one thing-she-shouldn't-have-done at a time.


One (or more) Sentence Summary:  You know I love Sarah Mlynowski....but this was one didn't do a lot for me.  I found it a extremely unrealistic and therefore had a hard time getting into the book.  However, typical of Sarah Mlynowski novel's it was packed with humor and crazy events.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  Yes, I love Sarah Mlynowski books!
