1. Skinny dip (her idea)
2. Prank someone (his idea)
3. Stargaze (her idea)
4. Kiss someone (his idea)

Leo Zimmerman has had a crush on his curvy best friend Kylie Jenkins since forever, so When he discovers the girl with a flair for baking has a newfound plan to rebel against her overbearing parents, he’s determined to be the one to help her carry it out. Who better than a self-proclaimed rebel like himself to show her the ropes of letting loose?

Sure, taking her to her first high school party, helping her sneak out of the house, or watching a sunset together isn’t exactly a hardship, but much harder is masking his feelings the more time they spend together. And when he suggests adding “kiss a boy” to Kylie’s plan and she accepts…suddenly all his dreams seem to be coming true.

But Leo’s got a secret that could change everything between them, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes to the surface.


"This is a sweet romance. Kylie pulls all the strings. Leo shows how great he is and the pair gets on really well. This is Kylie's story of getting everything she wants by taking a risk." --D.M., Goodreads

"It is a story filled with little rebellions, lots of love and much more trouble! A great read, I have no hesitation in recommending it to teens and adults who appreciate a well written, fast paced high school saga." --Elaine, Goodreads

"The Rules of Rebellion was such a cute read so I cannot wait to read more books written by Amity Hope!" --Shirley, Goodreads

I like Amity Hope's stories. I've read a few now. The rules of rebellion can definitely be read as a standalone. The rules of persuasion is about the main character's sister but it isn't necessary to read it to enjoy this story.

Kylie is feeling a bit left out. Her best friends all have boyfriends a ...more

RATING: 3.7/5 (which rounds up to 4/5)

This is a cute little romance with a few deeper themes involving bullying and sexual harassment that gives it some teeth. I found it to be a quick read with likeable main characters. The important messages contained within were bonuses. Recommended for a beach or rainy day read.

Last summer Amity Hope's THE RULES OF PERSUASION wiggled its way into my heart. It still brings a smile to my face to think about Meg and Luke's romance- it's just that stinkin' cute. Therefore, when I heard that Amity Hope was releasing not only a new YA romance but a YA romance that was also a com ...more

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 4/3/18.

Rules of Rebellion is a lighthearted and fun contemporary YA. Leo and Kylie are all kinds of adorable together, and the premise of a "list" to help Kylie break out of her "tediously boring" life (her little sister's words, not mine. I'm all in favor of ...more

I was pulled into this book from the moment I started it until the very end. It was such a great, quick read that had some pretty endearing characters. Even a couple from the last book made several appearances. But Leo and Kylie stole the show in their own story with their amusing and sweet spirits. ...more
