The Accidentals

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 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

  • Elle's Book Blog

    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

    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

    “I used to wonder what was so wrong with me that he didn’t want to meet me.”




     

    The sour

    -Haze, Rachel’s childhood friend pushing his need on her. Sorry man she may be your best friend but pushing your need and feelings when she is vulnerable is so not OK! It left a sour taste in my mouth.

     

    -Frederik, Rachel’s father. OK he tried. But he tried seventeen years late! And when his mom just was angry with him he left again! He came back but really how could he expect Rachel to let her guard down and trust him completely? He’s got me all riled up! And what he’s done later…I don’t want to spoil your fun so let’s just say that her dad was trying but he was so immature!

     

    The sweet (I kept the best part for the end)

    -Jack. He was the one to redeem the male population in this book! Never putting pressure on Rachel, always ready to alleviate her mood. Smart (future astronomer), handsome, loyal, always respecting Rachel ….I don’t think he had a single flaw.

    His banter with Rachel was the light in the dark weeks and months after Rachel’s mom died.

     

    -Aurora. Rachel’s roommate and friend. She was the lightness and fun Rachel needed. Rachel was a good girl at heart. Never did anything risky. Aurora was not what I would call wild but she was more daring and bold than Rachel. Her perfect sidekick. She was also supportive. What Rachel lacked with her dad she found it with her friends.

     

    In short this is a bittersweet story about growing up. Overcoming drama and finding your own voice and your own path. Building your own happy future amidst a rickety road. Learning to forgive, yourself and others. Learning to trust.

     

    I recommend this story if you are a fan of contemporary YA and are looking for something easy to read yet insightful.

    Have you read Sarina Bowen before?

    ***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

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!***

    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

    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

  • Talia (Red Hot Ink)

    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
