Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Sandover Prep, where the delinquents roam…and you can’t trust a soul.

Finding out your mom is marrying some rich dude you’ve never met is enough to make any 18-year-old guy’s head spin. But for RJ Shaw, it only gets worse: He’s being sent to Sandover Prep for senior year. If there’s one place a misfit hacker like RJ doesn’t belong, it’s an ivy-covered all-boys boarding school for rich delinquents.

RJ knows his stay at Sandover will be temporary. Which means there’s no point making friends or trying to fit in. But the plan to remain antisocial goes awry when he meets a gorgeous girl in the woods on campus. Sloane Tresscott is pure temptation, with a sharp tongue and an ice princess attitude RJ’s determined to crack. Except there’s a catch. Sloane is the one girl he is forbidden from touching.

The headmaster’s daughter.

Good thing RJ doesn’t believe in rules. Sure, Sloane insists she’s swearing off guys this year, but their connection is impossible to deny. He wants her bad, and he’s going to win her over if it kills him.

Unless her ex-boyfriend kills him first.

The ruling king of Sandover will stop at nothing to get rid of his competition. Luckily, RJ’s unwittingly made some friends—his new stepbrother Fenn, a pretty boy with a self-destructive streak; Lawson, self-proclaimed agent of chaos; and Silas, the All-American Good Guy who can’t actually be as nice as he seems.

If RJ wants to survive prep school and win Sloane’s heart, he’ll need to adapt—and fast.

Wow!

I loved the three narrator twist and the multiple pov of this story. Elle Kennedy can suck me into stories like very few authors do. Jason Clarke, Stella Bloom and Nelson Hobbs have knocked this one out of the park. Can’t wait for book 2!

Not disappointed

This is my first time with this author but I’m not disappointed! It was slightly sad hearing the past of these characters but not over done with it just more believable and real. It was funny and keep me invested. I literally didn’t put it down except to sleep. I will follow and listen to the next as they come out. It’s definitely one I will listen to again. I like how there was a little bit of of certain events that happened that sent the characters mad at each other but they always ended up figuring it out and these events weren’t drawn out to far just it was just enough!
I’m a sucker for good narration and picking narrators that can make it believable and there voices fit each character. Also this is the second author that had more then 2 POV’s and they did amazing. Good job author and narrators!! Definitely worth the credit

Intrigued

This was a book that kept me invested the entire time. I will continue reading this series. However I think it was a mistake not using different narrators for each different characters chapter. If I wasn’t paying attention to the name at the beginning of the chapter I was entirely lost.

This is more closer to YA than I was expecting. But it was still really good. I love Lawson and can’t wait till he gets a book.

Prep School Drama

Misfit was the audiobook selected by my book club for August. Narrated by Jason Clarke, Stella Bloom and Nelson Hobbs, this NA (borderline YA) prep school novel is full of drama and bad decisions. RJ is an unwilling prep school boy, who finds himself at rich kid reform school, when his mom gets married and he instantly has a step brother and room mate. Sloan is the headmaster's daughter and the person in her family responsible for her sister. RJ and Sloan shouldn't work, but it turns out they might be more similar than they think. One of my favorite parts of this book was that Sloan's favorite band was Sleater-Kinney. I love that angry girl rock music is getting some attention! The narration was good, Jason Clarke narrated several characters from their POV and it was challenging to distinguish between them, but his tone and inflection was enjoyable as always.

This is the start of a series and does end in a cliffhanger. This book took me a little to get into there are a lot of characters, and several of them have first person narration of their own chapters. The side characters having first person chapters has some benefit to the overall story, but I felt they were tangents to the plot of Misfit. I expect they have relevance to future books, but it felt like filler to make the story longer. I'm not sure if I will read additional books in this series, but I enjoyed my venture into the HS drama.

That Ending!!

This prep school romance was intriguing, somewhat suspenseful and often times funny. The 5 different POVs took some getting used to. Especially because there wasn't a whole lot of difference in the voices the narrator did for the 3 men he voiced . But I was definitely invested in where the story was going.
Lawson is easily my favorite character and I'm hoping we get more from him in the next book.
And that ending!! Gah! I need the next book immediately.

Misfit Prep

Elle Kennedy has for sure left me intrigued with what will happen next at Sandover Prep. I enjoyed all the build up for the side characters as well as the developing story with RJ and Sloane.

Jason, Stella and Nelson did a great job narrating.

Love this band of Misfits

The story is excellent! Full of angst, a little bit of taboo (helloooo Lawson🖤), and figuring out your place amongst your people.

Love Sloane & RJ together. Can’t wait to see where their relationship goes in Rogue.

Definitely need more of Silas & all the deets on Fenn. Because WTH dude?! He better have a good excuse😳

This cast is perfection🤌🏻

Terrible male narrators!

I loved the book but my God the male narrators were awful! RJ’s voice sounded slow and creepy like the guy who narrates Forensic Files. If I had the time like I used too I would have just read the book but I like to listen to them when I work. They are supposed to be high school seniors not middle age sounding men.
