None of the Regular Rules by Erin Downing Blog Tour

None of the Regular Rules by Erin Downing
Publication date: November 20th 2012
Genre: YA Romance/Coming-of-Age

Sometimes, a few dares can change lives…

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.

My Review:

This book was really good! It was a fun, quick and easy read. I loved the romance and the way Erin had her characters grow within the novel. It was also really good because it was easy to place yourself in Sophie's shoes. None of the Regular Rules will capture your heart from beginning to end. Sophie goes through changes with her friends and even her relationships. 

The characters were written perfectly because many people around Sophie's age feels the same way and Erin did a great job establishing this relationships of her best friends, Grace and Ella, whom were awesome supporting characters. Sigh! Johnny's was soo adorable and funny that I had to love him! The character interactions and the plot where the main centers of the novel because friends will always be there for you and they were there supporting Sophie through her life changes with her relationship with Johnny. Sophie and Johnny relationship had so much chemistry that it was great is see that they started off as friends then it turned into a love.  

Overall I loved the entire novel!! I fell in love with the entire plot and the friendships and loves that Sophie goes through, and they are with each other as a group who stand by each other. Their friendship is important to them because as girls we need to have trust and be there for each other if one has a broken heart, and as friends develop from common things, we all need them. None of the Regular Rules is definitely a Must Read!!
