Rebel Bully Geek Pariah

Finished Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange.  I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Summary (from Goodreads):

“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.

With cinematic storytelling and compelling emotional depth, critically acclaimed author Erin Jade Lange takes readers on literary thrill ride.”

I loved this book.  The Breakfast Club comparison is incredibly apt.

This book is told from Sam’s perspective, so all we know about Andi, York and Boston is what Sam knows.  I think that worked really well for this book, because it made every personality twist completely unexpected.  And I love Sam the most, because obviously we were in her head, but I also really loved Andi and York and Boston.  Every character in this is just perfect.

I have major hopes for a sequel.  I want to spend more time with these people.

Recommended.
