Review: The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen

Accidentals by Sarina Bowen


A YA novel from USA Today bestselling author 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.

Christy's Review:

There are a few authors who I will read any book they write. Sarina Bowen is one of those authors for me. The Accidentals was different than many of the other books of hers I have read, but I loved it all the same.

Rachel grew up with a single mother who was a nurse. All she knew about her father is what she read in magazines such as Spin. You see, Rachel's father is a famous rock star who she's never met. When her mother dies of cancer when Rachel is 17, that all changes. Freddy Ricks comes for his long lost daughter and knows he's got a lot of making up to do.

Freddy and Rachel have a tough time navigating their father daughter relationship at first. It's difficult for them both. Rachel has never had a father and Freddy has never been one. But they do their best to manage. There are many parts of this book that were emotional for me to read. My heart broke for Rachel, but I was happy with the direction her story took.

While this father daughter story line was going on, there was also a story of friendship between Rachel and her new roommate at school and a budding romance with a super sweet geeky guy. I loved all the different aspects of this book and how they came together to form one wonderful story. The Accidentals is a must read coming of age story that I recommend to all!
