The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life – by Tara Altebrando – my fave summer YA read

A tasty bowl of froyo with all the toppings

No Hacking Needed ♥

Verdict: Non-stop fun. While technically not a “summer” novel, it sure feels like one!

Perfect for: People who have had relationship drama. People who secretly like watching other peoples’ relationship drama (who doesn’t?). People who love lists and scavenger hunts (who doesn’t????)

Summary: Just before Senior graduation Mary and her friends Patrick, Dez, and Winter decide that they are tired of being semi-nobodies and that they will prove themselves by winning the annual end-of-year Senior scavenger hunt. Which is epic. Meanwhile, as the hunt goes on, MUCHO relationship drama happens because Mary had a crush on rival competitor Carson, who already has a girlfriend but might be breaking up with her maybe, but her best friend Patrick has a crush on her (Mary) and meanwhile Winter is acting weird and omg so much drama! But not annoying drama, don’t worry. Delicious drama, and totally relateable.

Review: Flash Burnout – by L.K. Madigan

YA Platonic Ideal

No Hacking Needed

Verdict: MUST READ. This is like the Platonic Ideal of a great teen book: funny, heartfelt, touching, and perfectly, briskly paced.

Perfect for: Anyone who has a sense of humor and/or a sense of empathy. Also: if you are male.  Also: great for anyone who wants inside information on how boys think. Spoiler: Boys are weird. And horny!
