How To Steal A Car by Pete Hautman

Summary: Some girls act out by drinking or doing drugs. Some girls act out by sleeping with guys. Some girls act out by starving themselves or cutting themselves. Some girls act out by being a bitch to other girls.

Not Kelleigh. Kelleigh steals cars.

In How to Steal a Car, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman takes teen readers on a thrilling, scary ride through one suburban girl's turbulent life - one car theft at a time.

My Thoughts: I went into this book not really knowing what to expect. But I actually enjoyed it and enjoyed Kalleigh's relationship with her friends. This book made me laugh and want to know what was going to happen next. My boyfriend would look over at me and wonder if I was reading a book on How To Steal A Car. He would ask if I was learning anything interesting! HEHE!

Overall: This was a fun little interesting read. It was a little under 200 pages so easy to read it in one night. It is a short short book. Buy it, borrow it, mooch it. Its a fun read.

Cover: I like the cover. I like the police cars and the way they go with the blue backgruond and it makes me want to know what the book is about.
