Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - Yup, this one is my favorite Dessen. I love a teen book with a musician. They make the best brooding boys. Marcus Flutie being my paragon 🙂 But that’s a different style – nothing should be changed about Sarah Dessen ever!

Sash from Sash and Em - I got about 60% of the way through this one before I totally disconnected with the character and was like bye-bye. Haha, maybe I’ll come back to it later. Reading Sarah Dessen back-to-back is not something I suggest unless you want to rile yourself up (which is what happened to me).

elena - HOORAY! I’m so glad you liked this, M, because it’s tied with The Truth About Forever for my favourite Dessen. Dexter!! I loved him and kept on imagining him as Adam Brody from the O.C. Hey, it was popular then.

VeganYANerds - Lovely review, Magan! I am so glad you’re going back to read Sarah’s work, all of her books are fantastic and if you do what I did and read all of them in a row, they may seem a bit formulaic, but that’s ok because Sarah always manages to make them all unique as well!

Like you, I wanted Remy to own up to her feelings sooner but I was happy with the ending 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I am a HUGE Sarah Dessen fan girl and have now successfully managed to read all her books, except the latest. This is one of my favorites, mostly because it involves around music and because it features Dexter!
