2 girls + 3 guys + 1 house parents = 10 things April and her friends did that they (definitely, maybe, probably) shouldn't have.
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 "e;opportunity"e; isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: "e;Lied to Our Parents"e;). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up "e;Skipping School"e; (#3), "e;Throwing a Crazy Party"e; (#8), "e;Buying a Hot Tub"e; (#4), and, um, "e;Harboring a Fugitive"e; (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.
In this hilarious and bittersweet tale, Sarah Mlynowski mines the heart and mind of a girl on her own for the first time. 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."e;
