How to Be Bad Kindle Edition
Three bestselling authors—E. Lockhart, Sarah Mlynowski, and Lauren Myracle—bring you on the road trip of a lifetime in this dynamic novel packed with fun, friendship, and feminism.
Jesse, Vicks, and Mel each has her own reason for wanting to get away from their nowheresville Florida town. Add in a hot (and harmless) hitchhiker, an impending hurricane, and a close encounter of the gator kind, and the result is one sizzling road trip where the journey is far more important than the destination.
Now in a fresh new package, YA fans will love going along with these three powerhouse storytellers on the ride of a lifetime.
From the Back Cover
Three girls who couldn't be more different have one goal in mind: to get the heck out of Dodge.
Well, Niceville, Florida, actually.
Vicks is the wild child whose boyfriend left for college and isn't returning any of her calls.
Mel is the good girl in expensive jeans who just wants everyone to like her.And Jesse, well, she'll do whatever it takes to avoid facing a life-altering secret.
Armed only with Vicks's battered copy of a guidebook called Fantastical Florida, the keys to Jesse's mom's beat-up station wagon, and Mel's credit card, they're Miami bound for the weekend. That is, they would be if they didn't keep getting distracted by attractive hitchhikers and natural disasters.
This may be a trip filled with detours, but the girls are about to learn that when it comes to fun and friendship, the best part of the adventure just might be the journey itself.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I absolutely loved the characters in this book. Jess, Vicks and Mel are all well fleshed out and relatable. Since each character is written by a different author, each voice is very distinct, yet, the story is cohesive. In the beginning, I was a little skeptical at how Mel would have fit in - what exactly was her story and why was she so keen on hanging with Jess and Vicks? How to be Bad explores these friendships, the road trip serving to bring out the good and the bad in each of them. For these girls, the trip is definitely about the journey, not just the destination.
While it's light and fun, How to be Bad has a lot of depth to it, walking a balance between hilarious and serious. It's a heartwarming story of the love of friends. I love the character growth, it made the book feel more like someone's diary than the imaginations of three authors. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more from these ladies and hopefully their future work together.

Not really sure what to think about the book. I liked the title and the description so I've decided to give it a go.
The story line is not really complicated and a bit enjoyable but at the same time, because of the fact that it's written by three different authors it gets quite confusing. I need to admit that I've been looking forward to reading two out of three characters point of few as I've enjoyed the style those have been written in. The last one not so much.
All in all, the book is not bad, but definitely not one of my favourites.
