#BookReview: The Accidental Bad Girl by Maxine Kaplan

About the Book:

After getting caught hooking up with her best friend’s ex on the last day of junior year, Kendall starts senior year friendless and ostracized. 

She plans to keep her head down until she graduates. 

But after discovering her online identity has been hacked and she’s being framed for stealing from a dealer, Kendall is drawn into a tenuous partnership with the mastermind of a drug ring lurking in the shadows of her Brooklyn private school. 

If she wants to repair her tattered reputation and save her neck, she’ll have to decide who she really is—and own it. 

The longer she plays the role of “bad girl,” the more she becomes her new reputation. 

Friends and enemies, detectives and drug dealers—no one is who they appear to be.  Least of all Kendall.

Notes and Opinions: This one was pretty good but it was very plot heavy. I felt like a lot of this could have been better if more attention would have been on the characters than the plot.  This is an ask no forgiveness story about a girl that is tossed into a situation that could have been at least somewhat fixed if she would have gone to someone she trusted. It really hurt to know that she didn't go to a parent or someone at school with her issue. In this day an age parents need to be more avaiable to their children and their children need to know that they can come to them with their problems.  So many young adult stories show kids trying to deal with dangours situations alone which is so scary.  I hope that teens who read this will look at it and know that they should be going to their parents or someone at school. 

They should not try to deal with these situations alone. 

Go Into This One Knowing: Needed more about the characters
