Rebel Bully Geek Pariah
Erin Jade Lange
“The Breakfast Club” gets a modern, high-stakes reboot in this story of four very different teens and a night that changes them forever.
The Rebel: Once popular, Andi is now a dreadlocked, tattooed wild child.
The Bully: York torments everyone who crosses his path, especially his younger brother.
The Geek: Tired of being bullied, Boston is obsessed with getting into an Ivy League college.
The Pariah: Choosing to be invisible has always worked for Sam . . . until tonight.
When Andi, York, Boston, and Sam find themselves hiding in the woods after a party gets busted by the cops, they hop into the nearest car they see and take off—the first decision of many in a night that will change their lives forever. By the light of day, these four would never be caught dead together, but when their getaway takes a dangerously unpredictable turn, sticking together could be the only way to survive.

I’m going to be honest: I started reading this book a long time ago and put it down. I tried to pick it back up but within the first 5 minutes of reading I was annoyed again at how stupid these characters were.
For some reason all four teenagers think that it would be better to steal an SUV than to either a) hide in the woods and wait for the cops to be gone or b) just let the cops find them and get a ticket for underage drinking, which THE MAIN CHARACTER WASN’T EVEN DOING. Nope. Instead they steal an SUV, run from a bunch of “cops” who are shooting at them, and wind up with a bunch of heroin in their possession. And they let the kid who has been drinking drive them around, and he HITS SOMEBODY. Like What the HELL? And then when Sam, the MC, is given the chance to leave, does she take it? Nope. She sticks around and they all run off to Boston and York’s mansion cabin in the woods. What an idiot.
There are plenty of other books I can be reading instead of wasting my time on something that is making me angry.
