Reading Now: Pretty Bad Things

"Wonder Twins" on the run--and running amok--in Vegas. Road Trip!
Paisley and Beau are boldface names again. Last time, paparazzi called them the "Wonder Twins," two kids found alone but alive in the woods of exotic New Jersey. Three days after their mom's death -- and before their dad's criminal misdeeds.

Flash-forward to now: Their so-called lives? Suck out loud: Hating on their cougarized, Botoxic grandma, they're totally clueless about the location of ex-con Daddy. Till they discover a stash of old letters. That's when they decide to jack the Pontiac and hit the road. Holding up donut shops in Sin City might seem extreme, but if they can just get their pretty bad faces back on TV -- or TMZ -- they might wrap up their whole gaga saga with an Oprah-worthy reunion already!


I received this book from the wonderful folks at Scholastic in exchange for an honest review.

So far, the book is a blast. Very mature teen audience here, however. (Language, sexual situations) While only being a few pages in, I find the book to have snap, the characters "voice" is real and the flow of the book very well done. Excellent read.
