Reading this book was one of the easiest things I’ve ever done.

The Accidentals was so much more than just a YA novel. But it was also so very different from what I came to expect form the YA trope.

Sarina Bowen’s first YA novel was emotional, touching in an understated way but that didn’t hold back the punches.

Like I mentioned before, reading this book was easy. It’s the epitome of a feel good novel that should be on anyone’s reading list. This book had everything I love about a Sarina Bowen novel. It had wonderful writing, dialogues that made me laugh out loud, and characters that were charming, genuine, and immediately likable.

There was nothing in this book I didn’t like.

It didn’t have the WOW or OMG effect. What it did have instead was the ability to leave me glowing with a feeling of being fully satisfied and utterly surprised by this heartwarming story. This book felt very differently compared to many other YA books. It felt genuine and hear-felt even without the typical emotional rollercoaster. It rather concentrated on relationships, their intricacies, nuances, and how imperfect they truly are, but also how much love they can give.

Mistakes can turn into life lessons. And the willingness to change the status quo, opens new doors to new and meaningful relationships. Giving second chances, not giving up, and just being open to the shortcomings of all things human was the overall message that pulled on my heartstrings.

I read this book in two days, and if I hadn’t been traveling and was forced to being an adult, I would have finished this book without interruptions, because honestly I didn’t want to put it down.

This heartwarming and unique story touched my heart and didn’t let go.

The Accidentals was way more than what I could have imagined. And I can only recommend it to anyone that loves a wonderful story, that leaves you smiling and utterly satisfied.

The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen


Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost.
Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul. There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.
