The Baddest Girl on the Planet by Heather Frese


I liked the beginning of this book a lot and I liked the idea of the premise... I just didn't like the final execution. The title is a bit misleading-- and while I think it's intentionally ironic, it does, in my opinion, set this book up to fail. I went into this expecting a "bad" girl but Evie isn't really bad. This is sort of a biography of a fictional woman who messed up her life. We get to see her as a child, a young adult, and then as an adult, and what she does after her traditional life falls off the tracks.

I liked the vacation she went on with her friend that kind of becomes an exercise in how sometimes friendship means being there when it counts even if you have abrasive personalities that end up causing friction. And I thought the infidelity plot in the beginning was really dramatic. The problem is that the timeline jumps around so much only to circle back. The parts with her as a child and the parts that were written in an almost stream of conscious style were hard to follow.

I'm sure lots of people will enjoy this but it wasn't my cup of tea.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

1.5 out of 5 stars
