One year + one beach house + zero parents = Ten Things We Shouldn't Have Done
I was about to live a sixteen-year-old's dream.
House on the beach.
Parties whenever we wanted.
Boys wherever we wanted.
April and her best friend, Vi, are living by themselves. Of course, April's parents don't know that. They think she's living with Vi and Vi's mum. But it's not April's fault that her dad decided to move away in the middle of high school. So who could blame her for a little white lie Or the other nine things that April (probably) shouldn't have done that year...
Wit, energy, and an uncanny understanding of teenage logic. - Publishers Weekly
Sarah Mlynowski started writing books when she was three years old. Kind of. She would tell them and her mom would transcribe them. They were all about Princesses named Sarah. After learning to use her own pencil, she continued scribbling stories throughout elementary and high school, and studied English literature in college.
When she was twenty-four she published her first chick lit novel, Milkrun. Since then she has written five novels for teens, four additional novels for adults, co-written a guide to writing chick lit (See Jane Write), co-edited two bestselling charity collections, and contributed to various anthologies. Originally from Montreal, Sarah now lives in Manhattan.
