Chasing the Skip by Janci Patterson is Munch-Worthy

Ricki’s dad has never been there for her. He’s a bounty hunter who spends his time chasing parole evaders—also known as “skips”—all over the country. But now since Ricki’s mom ran off, Ricki finds herself an unwilling passenger in a front-row seat to her father’s dangerous lifestyle.

Ricki’s feelings get even more confused when her dad starts chasing seventeen-year-old Ian Burnham. She finds herself unavoidably attracted to the dark-eyed felon who seems eager to get acquainted. But Ricki thinks she’s ever in control—the perfect manipulator. Little does she know that Ian isn’t playing their game by her rules.

So, does this book sound cute or what? Janci Patterson's debut seems like it will be a unique and memorable contemporary read, full of opportunities for romance and fun—on both the right and wrong sides of the law.

Also, I just have to say, that cover? Too cute.

In all, this book seems like it'll be the perfect read to put me (and hopefully other readers too!) in a good mood.

Releases October 2, 2012 from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group.
