After finally reading Meg Cabot’s Jinx, I was browsing my school library’s limited book selection, looking for something sweet, romantic, and Meg Cabot like. And the first book I found was What Happened to Goodbye, about a girl named Mclean Sweet, who made a habit of creating new persons for herself and then just disappearing, never saying good-bye, as a way to deal with what had happened with her parent’s divorce. It was one of the most touching books I’ve ever read.
So, now, I’ve already read This Lullaby, and I’m about to start another one, soon. I plan on reading all of Sarah Dessen’s novels. She is really good at weaving strong morals in her realistic fiction, and the words she writes on the page seem to stick with you, even after the page is turned, or the book is done.
I really recommend her, and This Lullaby! Sara Dessen may be well on her way to becoming one of my most favorite authors.
