9780545289733: Pretty Bad Things

"Wonder Twins" on the run--and running amok--in Vegas. Road Trip!

Paisley and Beau are boldface names again. Last time, paparazzi called them the "Wonder Twins," two kids found alone but alive in the woods of exotic New Jersey. Three days after their mom's death -- and before their dad's criminal misdeeds.

Flash-forward to now: Their so-called lives? Suck out loud: Hating on their cougarized, Botoxic grandma, they're totally clueless about the location of ex-con Daddy. Till they discover a stash of old letters. That's when they decide to jack the Pontiac and hit the road. Holding up donut shops in Sin City might seem extreme, but if they can just get their pretty bad faces back on TV -- or TMZ -- they might wrap up their whole gaga saga with an Oprah-worthy reunion already!

From Pretty Bad Things

I know what you're thinking. Teens on the run. Yadda yadda yadda. Maybe you're right. But we're all out of options. Last time we made headlines, Beau and I were six-year-old "wonder twins." Tho little kids, brother and sister, found alone but alive in the woods after being missing for three days. Now we're sixteen, and life's somewhat less than excellent. In fact, it sucks out loud. Still no Dad. Still lost. Still looking. But now we've got a clue where Dad could be: In the city where what happens stay hidden: big bad Las Vegas, USA. It's a long shot, but what've we got to lose? Time to seize the donut.
