Accidentally Me is my first read by Kim Karras.
It's a YA/New Adult coming of age story. Sabrina is off to her first year of college. But will it be Caltech (her dream) or Boise State (her parent's practical pick)?
Lots of family dynamics at play in the story. Getting into them would take too long to review, but they move the story forward. The pacing is consistent.
The story is clean with a youthful vibe. Sabrina is a bit shallow and self involved at the beginning, which made her slightly unlikeable. However, this was intentionally done to give her lots of room for development and self improvement. She needs to grow up! And tell the truth. Her biggest mistakes: hiring a stalker and lieing to her family. Fortunately, after several poor judgements on her part, she comes into her own and redeems herself.
I'd like to read a book about her experience in college. I think there is more growing for Sabrina to do and I'd like to see more Joe.
I received a copy of this book 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 . . .
