Review...My Rebellion Checklist by: Susan Soares


Victoria Matherson's summer to-do list looked something like this:

1. Get organized for college

2. Complete summer job at Dad’s office

3. Spend a romantic summer with Adam

During the first week of her summer vacation, Victoria’s super planned life suddenly swerves completely off track. Her boyfriend breaks up with her unexpectedly, she gets in a near-fatal car wreck, and her parents announce the end of their twenty-year.

Victoria decides to live life messily, to take chances, and finally to rebel. Taking on the new name of “Tori,” she creates a checklist of rebellion:

#3 Get an extreme haircut

#6 Pierce something
which she’ll use to show everyone around her that all the changes to her perfectly organized life haven’t affected her in the least. Even though they have.

With the help of her quirky and cute co-worker Zack, Tori will check off the crazy items on her list and learn what it means to give up control and be free. But just how far will she go?

My Rebellion Checklist released March 10th, 2015.

 My Review: (ARC provided)
3.5-4 stars!

This was a super cute book! After getting a sudden dose of realty Victoria/Tori realizes being miss perfect hasn't paid off. She decides to start a list of everything rebellious she can think of and check them off one by one.

Zack her cute and quirky co-worker is there to help her with the list. He gets her to explore herself and do things "out of order" hoping she'll understand not everything can be controlled.

I loved Zack's character he had a quirkiness about him that reminded me a little of Jessica Park's characters. (This is a compliment because I love Jessica Park's books). Zack had me smiling whenever he would say or do something and you could tell he was much smarter than he leads on. He was funny and just a go with the flow, laid back person. Whereas Tori was the complete opposite she was so structured and type A. It was fun to see her slowly come out of her shell a little but still she she couldn't fully give up her OCD tendencies. The two of them made me laugh together.

All in all a easy, fun, and fast read.

I recommend!
