Author: Kim Karras
Publisher: Cedar Fort
Published: August 2016
Paperback: 256 pages
FTC FYI: Received a paperback copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
WANTED: Pretend stalker. No experience required. Tall, dark, and quirky preferred. Sabrina is desperate to go to her dream college, but her parents want her to stay close to home. If she wants to maintain her perfect child image, Sabrina must break rules that even her rebel sister keeps . . .
Accidentally Me is very a funny and an all around great story that young people (and adults) can relate to and enjoy. The book is told from the point of view of Sabrina, who feels she is an "accident", so she is always trying to be the perfect daughter. I loved the life lessons in the story and the lesson of "things aren't always what you think they are". I appreciated all that Sabrina went through and smiled through lots of her adventures. Kim wrote Sabrina very well and I actually laughed out loud a lot. One thing I thought happened too quickly was how much she "liked" a certain character, I felt that happened too fast. I did like what came about of that though, and how that particular relationship changed other relationships Sabrina had for the better. (Vague I know, but when you read it, you will understand:)
4 out of 5 stars. This is the author's first book and I think she did a fabulous job! A quick read with humor and heart. I look forward to more from this debut author.
