Rating: 3 stars

2 girls + 3 guys + 1 house - parents = 10 things April and her friends did that they (definitely, maybe, probably) shouldn't have.
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), "Throwing a Crazy Party" (#8), "Buying a Hot Tub" (#4), and, um, "Harboring a Fugitive" (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.
this is an easy to read book...i actually read it in one breath and it totally reminded me of my stupid teen years.

i enjoyed the book but come on why cant it be a coming of age book with a realistic plot. Many things that the protagonists did were unrealistic...nevermind the bad parenthood.

the author did a really good job writing about the relationships and how unimportant and small things seems so big at the eyes of a teenager and how they deal with that. as for the sex issue well it was great during the book but it ruined everything at the last chapters.

Nevertheless i would recommend this book.
