Overview

"Wonder Twins" on the run--and running amok--in Vegas. Road Trip!

Paisley and Beau are boldface names again. Last time, paparazzi called them the "Wonder Twins," two kids found alone but alive in the woods of exotic New Jersey. Three days after their mom's death -- and before their dad's criminal misdeeds.

Flash-forward to now: Their so-called lives? Suck out loud: Hating on their cougarized, Botoxic grandma, they're totally clueless about the location of ex-con Daddy. Till they discover a stash of old letters. That's when they decide to jack the Pontiac and hit the road. Holding up donut shops in Sin City might seem extreme, but if they can just get their pretty bad faces back on TV -- or TMZ -- they might wrap up their whole gaga saga with an Oprah-worthy reunion already!

    Highly Recommended

    I fell in love with this story from the beginning. The badass persona of the main character Paisley caught my attention from the get-go. She's a troubled teen who's life is going from school to school because she continues to get kicked out due to her "I don't care" attitude. Paisley has been seeing a therapist ever since she found her mother dead and took off into the woods of New Jersey with her twin brother Beau. After three days lost in the woods, the "Wonder Twins" as the paparazzi called them were found and taken to their grandmother who later exploits them for all the money she can get her hands on. After Beau discovers that their long lost father, who was convicted of robbery has sent the twins letters their entire life, and did not abandon them as their grandmother had said, Beau is undecided how to tell his sister Paisley. After hearing that her father has not forgotten about them, and has sent them letters that her grandmother had forced the maid to hide, Paisley finds yet another way to get herself kicked out of the most recent school she's attending. With her flight ticket in hand, she's ready to head back to her grandmother's house and talk to her brother on how to gain contact with their father. This story shows just how far one will go to for love or to be loved.

    BookWhisperer Review: Pretty Bad Things

    Pretty Bad Things is an great story about the awful truths about greed and betrayal. Paisley and Beau are national celeberties due to their unfortunate past of having found their mother overdosed and going in search of their father only to get lost in the woods for days following the incident. While this was many years earlier that present has left them with much wealth and even bigger problems. This is a terrible story about these to young people and the moment they decide that life has handed them the raw deal. Paisley and Beau are determined to set out and find their estranged Dad; this also will allow the two to seperate themselves from their money grubby Grandmother that is using them solely for the wealth that it has provided her. Pretty Bad Things will tug at your heart strings, and make readers contemplate the true nature of some individuals. This is a eye opening experience to look at the world without the rose colored glass. Readers Beware!
