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 . . .
Sabrina wants to go away to college rather than stay close to home, but doesn't think her parents will let her go. She comes up with a plan to have someone stalk her so they will be willing to send her away. She finds the perfect guy but things don't go quite like she planned.
This was a quirky, fun book! It did seem ridiculous that the only plan Sabrina could come up to leave home was to create a stalker. It made perfect sense that this plan quickly spiraled out of control which resulted in lots of drama and entertainment for me, the reader.
There's more to her story, though. Sabrina is much younger than her brother and sister so she thinks of herself as an accident and puts a lot of pressure on herself to be perfect. She doesn't have a good relationship with her sister and tries to make it better but there are some obstacles for them to overcome. Sabrina makes plenty of mistakes in all areas of her life. She made me laugh and cringe and hope she would turn out okay at the end. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author in the future!
