The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Kidnapped - Yxta Maya Murray I have to say that The Good Girl's Guide To Getting Kidnapped is unlike anything I have read before. That is both parts good and bad. It's a very unique story and well-written but I'm kind of mixed in my feelings for it.The Good Girl's Guide To Getting Kidnapped is the story of Michelle Pena, former gang princess of Montebello. Her life seems to be looking up until she and her best friend, Kiki, are kidnapped and held for ransom. Things get real crazy, real quick and Michelle has to make a decision. Will she give up everything she has ever known and the one boy she has ever loved to go back to her normal life or will she choose to be Princess P?The good thing about the book was that it kept me hooked. There was always something going on which made the book really easy to read. Also, Yxta Maya Murray kept me guessing until the very end about what path Michelle might choose. The things that I didn't like about the book weren't that major but they do kind of nag at me. The ending seemed pretty open. It's like the author doesn't know if she wants to write a sequel so she left it like that so if she wants to in the future, she can. Also, the slang was a little trying. The way Michelle talked to the other gang members got on my nerves after a while. I know it goes with the story but it was a little bit forced, it didn't come natural to Michelle. It was like she was trying too hard to impress the boys.Overall, The Good Girl's Guide To Getting Kidnapped was entertaining, if nothing else. It's a good book if you are just looking for something that doesn't require a ton of thinking. In the end, I would recommend it!
