52 Reasons to Hate My Father


Lexington Larrabee has never to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they’re not supposed to crash brand new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Blvd either.

Which is why, on Lexi’s eighteen birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it’s dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.

In a hilarious “comedy of heiress” about family, forgiveness, good intentions, and best of all, second chances, Lexi learns that love can be unconditional, money can be immaterial, and, regardless of age, everyone needs a little saving. And although she might have 52 reasons to hate her father, she only needs one reason to love him.

I’m admittedly very late to reviewing this. I’ve been wanting to read it forever, after seeing the wonderful book trailer (All of Jessica Brody’s trailers are great)! It looked like such a fun book, and I was totally right!

It’s been a long time since I read a book that was so cute, funny, and entertaining, all while being very clean! YA tends to be a sketchy genre, especially in the contemporary sector, but Ms. Brody really pulled it off! I was very impressed. There was fabulous character development, and story lines, all the while being all around funny! I very much enjoyed it, and highly recommend it.

4.5 out of 5 stars.
