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

Front Flap: Three girls who couldn't be more different have on goal in 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 morality 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 omm'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. This was so awesome. The three different girls point of view written in first person switching between the three but being near the same people and with each other is always fun. And sometimes you forget whose talking! But I loved it. I love books that have girls that are so different that end up getting along in the end. It makes you hopeful that really is true in life! But the book was great.
