None Of The Regular Rules By Erin Downing
The weekend before the start of senior year, Sophie Erickson and her best friends, Ella and Grace, discover a handwritten list of dares tucked away in the glove compartment of Sophie's beat-up old Toyota. But this isn't just any list; it's a dead girl's bucket list.
Sophie's beloved aunt Suzy died as a teenager in a fatal fall, leaving Sophie with an overly cautious family, a few fading photographs, and a bucket of bolts that barely passes for a car. But now, Sophie has Suzy's list of the things she wanted to do in her last year of high school. Sophie can't help but wonder: What would happen if she tried to fulfill Suzy's last wishes, to live out the longed-for life of her aunt, her hero?
As Sophie and her friends attempt to knock off the things on Suzy's list of dares, love blossoms in unexpected places and Sophie begins to feel that her life is finally coming together...when in fact, everything is slowly unraveling around her. When the truth about a long-held family secret threatens to shatter everything she believed to be true, Sophie is forced to question everything she knew about the life and people she believed in, and ultimately herself.
None of the Regular Rules is a hilarious, heartbreaking, and sexy new novel from the author of Drive Me Crazy and Kiss It.

This story is about Sophie finding a list left by her Aunt Suzy who died after falling from a water tower.Sophie decides to complete the items on the list in honor of her Aunt.Her friends Grace and Ella help her and her Neighbor Johnny Rush comes in pretty handy with a certain ultra cool ride on lawn mower.This story is about finding out who You are,not losing yourself in the process,finding love and last but not least the power of friendship.
Wow.Wow.Wow.Yes 3 Wows.None of The Regular Rules is that good.I literally would have pulled an all nighter on this had it not been for my minions needing to be at school in the morning. As I've mentioned before..A good book in my eyes is one that entrenches you in it..makes the world go away..all of which happened for me.If I could have had one thing change in the book it would have been a teeny bit more romance..BUT let me say that the book has it and does it well..Im just a sucker for the ooey gooeyness of it.I loved the ending and honestly the last paragraph was wonderfully written.I also have to say that I love that Sophie just chopped her hair off..let her friends cut it and send it to Locks of Love.That was epic as its honestly the first time I have seen it in a young adult novel.Honestly If you haven't read None of The Regular Rules..what are you waiting for?This is a MUST read.Walk,Run to your computer and get it.You will not be disappointed.
