52 Reasons to Hate My Father will make you laugh the whole way through! Lexington is a spoiled heiress who is about to inherit $1.7 million dollars- until she crashes a car and her father makes her work minimum wage jobs every week for a year. I loved every minute of this book and I think you will too! Did I mention it's going to be made into a movie?

Characters bit too one dimensional & the tale may be predictable, story hid heartbreaking secret on protagonist's mother.
Not the best, but nice read.

Do you like stories that are riches-to-rags? Did you love "Gossip Girl"? Have you ever worked for minimum wage? Then this is for you!

I have enjoyed the other two books I read of Jessica Brody's. But this one I didn't like as much. I still enjoyed the main character. Lexington was a spoiled brat heiress, but I understood why she was a spoiled brat heiress. I loved her growth throughout the book, and her journey was enjoyable. However, I hated her father. So very much. It was because of how he raised her, or rather, *didn't* raise her that lead to her being a spoiled brat heiress, and then had the audacity to punish her for it. I wanted to see more growth from him, and didn't get that. So the ending was a little flat for me. But it has the usual enjoyable Jessica Brody style. So I can still recommend it, though I preferred the other two I've read over this one.

Fun, great characters, got to understand how some of those spoiled brats become that way. The ending was a bit rushed but overall a great read.

I absolutely loved this book! It had some really awesome life lessons in it, and left you with a good feeling. It was really fun, and entertaining, and I would reccommend it to anybody!

I really enjoyed reading this book, and although Lexi started out as the classic spoiled rich brat, she became a very loveable character by the end. I'd recommend this book if you are looking for a light, fun story (as in no supernatural stuff) that also has some deeper meaning and leaves you with a nice feeling by the end.
