    Quirky and Fun!

    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!

    Quirky and fun "new adult" novel with an ending that melted my heart!

    Poor Sabrina gets herself into quite a mess in this quirky young adult/new adult novel. Granted, she doesn't have any experience standing up to her parents, and when her underhanded way of trying to manipulate them quickly gets out of control, she only ends up making things more complicated. She has an inner sassiness that is fighting its way out, but manifests in whining and bickering with her sister. She is a little self-absorbed as most 18 year olds are I'm sure, but as she is humbled by her experiences she learns to not take her family for granted. Calvin is somewhat of an enigma, and even though he has his share of flaws, he helps Sabrina realize her true fears that she must conquer in order to claim independence. The secondary characters are vividly portrayed through the lens of Sabrina's perspective, and I loved the fun coincidences of a shy admirer popping up here and there in the story, throwing Sabrina off guard in the middle of her self-inflicted drama. There were some difficult lessons she learned but the story ends on an upswing that melted my heart.

    Quirky Characters

    Sabrina believes that her life is one big accident. She was an unplanned pregnancy, so she thinks that she was an unwelcome accident and that her parents don't care about her as much as her older brother and sister.

    Sabrina has a goal in mind. She wants to go to CalTech. Her parents want her to stay close to home and go to school in Boise. In desperation she concocts a plan, she tells them she has a stalker and hopes that they will feel that she is unsafe in Idaho and let her go to California. She finds the perfect stalker on Facebook, a nerdy boy she knew in high school and pays him to "stalk" her.

    Sabrina goes through a lot of growth in this book. She is very quirky, nerdy, insecure, and naive. She doesn't realize the consequences of her action. The book is told in a humorous tone of voice that helped me to like Sabrina and her less than perfect family.

    I liked the realizations that Sabrina finally grasps. She learns about family, honest, love, and trust. Maybe the best things in life happen through an "accident".

    This book is fairly clean with references to illegitimate children, dishonesty, and innuendo.

    A good 3-3,5 Star read

    Accidentally Me is a book all about coming of age and learning all those hard lessons on that bumpy road.

    Sabrina has always done everything the way she was expected to. She wants to prove to her parents that she isn’t the burden she fears she is, being the “accident child” that she thinks she is. So she works hard in school, and doesn’t make any waves.

    When she is faced with the choice of her future college, her preference goes to Caltech, and not Boise State, the college her parents insist she goes to.

    So she comes up with a rather elaborate plan to find a fake stalker. The idea is that her parents will be scared into sending her away to escape the stalker.

    Naturally this plan start to suffocate Sabrina when she starts developing feelings for her fake stalker, and she gets entangled in her web of lies to keep up this ridiculous charade.

    This book had a lot of humor in it, that kept my attention when I got frustrated with Sabrina. I remember the difficulty of moving into adulthood, but the stupid situations she got herself into did have me rolling my eyes from time to time. She made a real mess of things, and the whole mess started off with one stupid lie.

    The book did have a nice message to it. I felt that Sabrina grew a lot in this story. She was able to lay her insecurities somewhat to rest, and was able to stand up to the consequences of her bad choices. She also was able to move forward and make some big steps, which helped her gain strength. I do feel like now we finally got to that point, the book ended, leaving me hanging just a little. The character of Joe was introduced, then reentered, and then the book ends. You are kind of left hanging on that note.

    There is a good supporting cast, some of which gets a fair amount of focus. Heather, Sabrina’s sister goes through her own little turmoil, coming out much stronger on the other side. Then there is Calvin, the fake stalker. He gets a fair amount of attention, but you are left hanging with how all will end with him. He seems to redeem himself somewhat, but not quite.

    All in all, a good read for an afternoon on the couch.
