Description:

Impulsive high school senior Monroe Baker is on probation for a recent crime, but strives to stay out of trouble by working as a flapper at her father's Roaring 20's dinner show theater. When she cuts herself on one of the spent bullets from her father's gangster memorabilia collection, she unwittingly awakens Bonnie Parker's spirit, who begins speaking to Monroe from inside her head.

Later that evening, Monroe shows the slugs to Jack, a boy she meets at a party. He unknowingly becomes infected by Clyde, who soon commits a crime using Jack's body. The teens learn that they have less than twenty-four hours to ditch the criminals or they'll share their bodies with the deadly outlaws indefinitely. 

My Thoughts:

This book was crazy from the get go we meet Monroe Baker who is trying to keep her nose clean so she can go to NYU and move on with her life and spends her time working in her father's roaring 20's dinner show theater.

Upon touching some bullets from the days of Bonnie and Clyde she shows the other bullet to a guy named Jack who gets infected with Clyde while Monroe is infected with Bonnie.  Bonnie and Clyde are back and don't want to die again.  They are determined to do everything in their power to keep their bodies they inhabit.  Monroe and Jack want to get rid of these gangsters and move on with their lives without getting into anymore trouble.
