Not my favourite of Sarah Dessen's novels, though this is through no fault of the book itself. I simply identifed more with Just Listen
and The Truth About Forever.
However, as usual the story was heartfelt, well written, and a cut above the typical cliched teen novels that can be found in such abundance now. I also particularly liked that I recognised these characters from their brief but memorable cameo in Just Listen,
and I now had a chance to hear their story. That's one of the things I love about Dessen's books - their sense of interconnection, the feeling that everyone and everything is somehow linked together. The three stars is only
because I personally related better to those other books, and therefore enjoyed them that little bit more.
