Review: I enjoyed reading this book. It's very realistic, this is my first sarah dessen book, and she is a gifted writer. The way she portrays things makes it seem like it could have happened in your own life. All of her characters are very relatable and it took me a little whilde to get into this book at first. It's not the type of book where you just keep flipping through to figure out what's next. It's more sentimental and holds hidden messages that you'll remember long after you've read it. The thing about it is that I think everyone can kind of find their own little message in this book. All in all, a very good book.


  1. You must read more Dessen. She is amazing!

  2. Every time I read about Sarah Dessen someone was talking good of her so I'll start reading her books soon*
