Humorous and action-packed, Vivie Goes to Hell in a Hatchback by Sherrill Wark is a fun-filled young adult novel that I absolutely loved. There wasn’t a dull moment in the story. The author kept the momentum going and ensured that the reader was hooked. This could be a great TV series on Netflix; I can even imagine certain actresses playing Vivie and Susan. The duo is hilarious, they try to make things work the best way possible, but of course, things are tiring. The bickering between the two is just too much fun to ever stop. However, the love and affection between them are very evident. I enjoyed their dynamic, their relationship and how they worked as a team to get things done. Vivie’s character development was intense and immense. She stopped being a brat and started to grow up; she learned to be compassionate and patient. This is a true entertainer!
