All Vic Navarro wanted to do was throw one last hurrah for her friends, her graduating class, and the town’s neurotic diner, Happies, which is set to be torn down the next day, and to give a big middle-finger to her arch nemesis Miss Anne Thrope, but what she gets instead is not what she wanted. But maybe it’s what she needed.

This book is so kooky that it’s hard to not fall in love with the characters. They jump right off the page and into your lap and they stay with you no matter where you go. I couldn’t get Vic Navarro, or as she’s called by her friends General Navarro, out of my head and I loved every minute of it.

This book’s pace is brilliantly set within one night of teenage debauchery and hilarious mishaps, all of which you can’t help but cringe at but also secretly laugh at as well. I really have nothing bad to say about this novel from veteran author Rachel Cohn. It was such a nice, easy read that definitely was a great break from the sci-fi and fantasy that I normally read.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone graduating high school or even college in the next couple of weeks/months. It will set the mood for you to start the new chapter in your life, and really isn’t that what books are for to help you move from one chapter to the next?
