Praised by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle as “hilarious, moving and flat-out fun,” and Kirkus as a “pitch-perfect rendering…of the teen experience,” Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) has captured the hearts of critics and readers alike.
Fans of Sarah Dessen, E. Lockhart, and Maureen Johnson will love this hilarious and heartwarming tale of a girl on her own for the first time.
If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn’t jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe “opportunity” isn’t the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: “Lied to Our Parents”). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up “Skipping School” (#3), “Buying a Hot Tub” (#4), and, um, “Harboring a Fugitive” (#7) is a mystery to them.
To get through the year, April will have to juggle a love triangle, learn to do her own laundry, and accept that her carefully constructed world just might be falling apart . . . one thing-she-shouldn’t-have-done at a time.

I loved it so much I read it in 1 and 1/2 days I loved the story line it wuz like a movie in my head:)
Best book I ever read!
This was hilarious!!!! I don't know if I could read it over and over again though. I will have 2 c about that. Anyways, the only thing I didn't like about the book was all the flashbacks. The fact it kept switching from past, present, and future really confused me. I think this some of the pizzaazz out of the book. If it just started in the present and went to the future it would have been fine.
Altogether, a really funny and touching book.
Off to read along for the ride by Sarah dessen
