A YA novel from USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen. Never ask a question unless youre sure you want the truth. Ive been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. Its just that weve 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 fathers exclusive world. A world I dont 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. Theres 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....

The Accidentals Reviews
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Genre: Young Adult Coming of Age (Musicians)
Actual Rating: 3 stars
Unpopular Opinion Alert: I liked this book but I didn't love it. It's hard for me to describe exactly why so I am just going to say that I wasn't in the mood for it.
The Accidentals is Sarina Bowen's first YA romance novel and I certainly praise her for her amazing storytelling ability. She writes perfection and in most cases, I fall deep in love with her characters and novels. Unfortunately, this ...more
4 « bittersweet »stars for the story and 5 stars for the cover.
« An accidental is a note in the piece that departs from the stated key signature. But there’s nothing accidental about an accidental, in spite of its name. The use of accidentals adds colors and depth to the music, effectively allowing the composer an expanded color palate from which to paint.”
Ok did you understand it?
Good! Maybe you are a musician.
Me, not so much but how cool does it sound right?
Joke aside The Accidentals was ...more
***ARC received for an honest review***
”Music has always been my drug of choice.”
We all know Sarina Bowen is my drug of choice. And that I’m a total bitch about YA books. Common sense would dictate that maybe I hesitate when I hear SB has written her first YA. What if I hate it? What if it ruins (the completely one-sided) love affair we’ve got goin on? When you put your heart out there it can get stomped.
But I’m glad I took this risk. I went in with questions. How much angst? How much steam? Wa ...more
I’d be happy if this book went on forever…
It’s been a bloody long time since I’ve freaked out to look at the bottom of my Kindle and see 4 minutes – 99% left in my book. I really didn’t want this story to end. I was even kind of hoping that Sarina left us a little message hinting at a The Accidentals #2. I’m slightly overwhelmed, emotionally exhausted and so giddily happy that I practically ran to my study to start my review.
BUT HOW THE HELL DO I WRITE A REVIEW TO DO IT JUST ...more

HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]
I'm a big YA fan, so I was thrilled when I heard that Sarina Bowen was venturing into one of my favorite genres. She's one of my auto-read/auto-buy authors in contemporary romance, and has been for some time. What I especially loved about this book was that she really went outside of her norm by placing the father daughter relationship at the forefront of th ...more

Sarina Bowen has written a lot of books. She has covered so many topics and done them in ways that are relatable and with compassion. I truly believe she could tackle any type of genre or topic and make it work well. Her latest boo ...more
This book was a toough one. I got into it blind, since I love the author, but with a general idea of what the YA genre implied. I was expecting a cute coming of age story, but this book was way heavier than that. I am not saying it in a negative way. I liked how this book played my heart strings. It was intense, and Bowen did a great job letting the characters' actions speak louder than internal monologues ever could. That being said, I did found this novel a bit too disproportioned towards sedn ...more
“Have you found what you were looking for here?”
Have I? I still don’t know…”I’m working on it,” I say.
The Accidentals is a wonderfully emotional YA from Sarina Bowen, one of our much-loved Authors. A coming of age story where a seventeen year old girl is facing a tragedy whilst at the same time having to face a confusing and much-needed confrontation with the past thereby exposing vulnerability and her childlike need for love and acceptance. We loved the family dynamics of this story and how t ...more
