Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 09, 2011 – With wit, energy, and an uncanny understanding of teenage logic, Mlynowski (Gimme a Call) weighs the pros and cons of independence in this modern cautionary tale. April is thrilled when her father agrees to let her stay at her friend Vi's house while he and his new wife move from Connecticut to Ohio. There's just one little detail that April manages to keep secret: Vi's mother will be away, so there will be no adult supervision. Soon April is living a 16-year-old's dream: "House on the beach. No Parents. Parties whenever we wanted. Boyfriends whenever we wanted." But it doesn't take her long to discover that the price of freedom (both literally and figuratively) may be higher than she's willing to pay. Even though the message about growing up too quickly comes through loud and clear, Mlynowski avoids sermonizing, offering 10 madcap and remarkably tense escapades that will have readers laughing, cringing, and guessing how April will get out of the next pickle. Like all good things, April's freedom party must come to an end, but the way it does so will surprise. Ages 14 up.

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:)

Loved it!

Best book I ever read!

Pretty good.

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
