about


KYLIE: Mexico? What a nightmare! I should be putting the finishing touches on my valedictorian speech. Graduation is TODAY! Wait! Is this a wedding band on my finger??

MAX: It started with Kylie's laptop and a truck full of stolen electronics and it ended in Ensenada. It was hot, the way she broke us out like some chick in an action movie. But now we're stranded here, with less than twenty-four hours before graduation.

WILL: Saving Kylie Flores from herself is kind of a full-time occupation. Luckily, I, Will Bixby, was born for the job. And when I found out she was stuck in Mexico with dreamy Max Langston, sure, I agreed to bring their passports across the border but there's no reason to rush back home right away. This party is just getting started.

LILY: This cannot be happening. It's like some cruel joke. Or a bad dream. I close my eyes and when I reopen them, they're still there. Max and Kylie Flores, freak of the century. In bed together. If Kylie thinks I'm giving him up without a fight, she's dead wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A cute and entertaining YA read Have you ever dreamt about having one of those crazy nights before graduation or the night of graduation? I did. But, it was never crazy like this. Kylie and Max run into some bad lucky and Kylie is determined to change her life around. Well she definitely turns her life upside down and goes on the adventure of a life time. What At first I didn’t really like Max, or Lily. They sort of stuck to their stereo-type of the snobby rich kids and even though they were going through some tough stuff I didn’t really like them. I still don’t even know about Lily—begging never looks good on a girl. But, Max…well I had a change of heart about him, although he still did some stuff to warrant a smack in the face, overall he was a pretty good guy. Now, Will. Well he made me laugh. Many, many a times. I found myself laughing and crying (these teens all can relate because they have some serious issues going on in there lives—which I really liked) and I was laughing and smiling some more. Good: Kylie—Independent and determined. Max—Over comes his stereo-type and really finds himself Movie Quotes: There were some awesome movie quotes at the beginning of each chapter and even sometimes in between. Bad: Something about this book just didn’t grip me. I found I could set it down and wander away. I sometimes liked the characters and I sometimes didn’t. I guess that’s just me and my preference. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall this book was a nice cute read. It has the smackdown of reality and serious issues, but still managed to bring the humour and allow the teens to really act like teens. It was emotional and funny and had random adventures around every corner. Kramer and Thomas fun young adult read lets you live the adventure you always wanted to have on your graduation night without any of the risks and manages to bring some laughter into your life.
