Book Review of Someone Like You

Someone Like You
reviewed on + 33 more book reviews

I enjoyed some of Dessen's books in the past, so I thought I'd give this one a try. It sucked me in big time. It was a refreshingly real look at the struggle that teen girls face dealing with pressure from guys, pressure to drink, and pressure to be who their parents want them to be. I was tempted to knock some sense into Halley partially through the book, luckily Scarlett did it for me. Encouraging book, complete with happy ending, but I'm not going to lie and say the whole story was happy. Life's struggles aren't happy. Definitely worth reading though.
