Accidentally Me by Kim Karras

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 . . .

 * Goodreads * Amazon *

This is what I would call a coming of age story.  It is YA and it is clean.  It isn't really a romance but more of a young girl trying to find her way into adulthood.  

Sabrina wants to go away to college, but her parents want her to stay close to home.  Being the youngest child by quite a few years, and a surprise baby to boot, Sabrina feels like she has a lot to live up to.  She struggles with her place in the family.  She has watched her older siblings make mistakes and she tries her best to not make waves in her home but she really, really wants something that goes against her parents desires.

As a mother of teenage girls, this book was kind of funny to me.  I have a daughter this exact age and some of the things Sabrina did and thought just made me smile.  I enjoyed watching Sabrina stretch her wings, make some mistakes and come to some important realizations.  

This was a fun book.  I liked that romance wasn't the primary focus.  Sabrina is a character that most teenagers will find some connection with.

Content:  Clean (some talk of Sabrina's sister being pregnant without being married)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Wow... it looks and sounds clean. Great review. I don't really look towards Contemporary but this one sounds cool.
