I love books and I'm a teen. I've been reading a lot of Dessen's books lately, and I was excited about reading this one. This is probably my favorite of her's. Colie is an amazing character with struggles. She was fat and made fun of. On top of that, her mom is famous. That's a lot of pressure. In my eyes, she's strong. Morgan and Isabel seem to just bring out that strength. And Norman is amazing. I love how characters change from beginning to end and how different, yet alike, they all are. In all, like I said, one of my favorites.
This was the 1st Sarah Dessen book I read, and since I've read it many times! This will always be one of my favorite books by Sarah, Lock & Key and The Truth About Forever are the others on my top 3 list! Read them you won't be dissapointed!
This was surprisingly my first Sarah Dessen read, I have quite a few books of hers on my bookshelf, but had yet to read one, so in the middle of a cold snap, I decided it was the perfect book to curl up with and read in one sitting! I was right!
