9780061731044: Tangled

Paradise wasn't supposed to suck.

Not the state of being, but a resort in the Caribbean.

Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen are all there for different reasons, but at Paradise their lives become tangled together in ways none of them can predict. Paradise will change them all.

It will change Jena, whose first brush with romance takes her that much closer to having a life, and not just reading about those infinitely cooler and more exciting.

It will change Dakota, who needs the devastating truth about his past to make him realize that he doesn't have to be a jerk just because people think he's one.

It will change Skye, a heartbreakingly beautiful actress, who must come to terms with the fact that for once she has to stop playing a role or face the consequences.

And it will change Owen, who has never risked anything before and who will take the leap from his online life to a real one all because of a girl he met at Paradise. . . .

From confused to confident and back again, one thing's certain: Four months after it all begins, none of them will ever be the same.

Review:

"Subtle then intense, hilarious then heartbreaking, TANGLED grabs you and doesn't let go."--Jay Asher, New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why

"Mackler writes with...insight and humor."--ALA Booklist

More Praise for Carolyn Mackler: "Carolyn Mackler has a knack for making characters seem perfectly real (flaws, goofiness, awesomeness and all!)"--Not Your Mother's Book Club

"Mackler expertly creates believable characters, plots, and settings. The various viewpoints weave together to create a compelling and cohesive whole. A story that begs for discussion."--School Library Journal

"With her trademark humor and insight, Carolyn Mackler offers a dynamic tale of four wholly different yet totally relatable teens whose lives intersect in fascinating and touching ways."--Rachel Cohn, New York Times bestselling co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

"Mackler . . . does an amazing job of capturing the wistful self-consciousness of teenage girls."--BookPage

"Make it not end! I *loved* reading about Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen. I loved getting a peek into their messy, juicy, miserable, wonderful lives, and I loved being reminded that existence itself is all about the tangling of souls."--Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author of TTYL and TTFN

"Carolyn Mackler is a remarkably astute observer of human frailties and hearts. In four interlocking tales of redemption and romance, she reminds us why we're alive and what we might mean to one another if we'd only reach out."--E. Lockhart, author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks

"Mackler is an accomplished writer for older YA readers, especially those serious about understanding human emotions and behavior."--KLIATT

"Well, there goes your weekend. You've just picked up Carolyn Mackler's TANGLED. Cancel your plans. You're not going to want to be anywhere else."--Daniel Handler, allegedly New York Times bestselling author Lemony Snicket

"Brimming with girl appeal and emotionally generous... deftly demonstrate[es] that people aren't always who they seem to be."--Kirkus Reviews

"The often-hilarious story, which takes place over a four-month period, builds in poignant layers as each character narrates in a fresh, frank voice that defies stereotype. Their insecurities, desires, and questions about family, self-worth, and first love are timeless."--Booklist
