By Sarah Dessen, are words on a book that can’t go wrong. All the books I’ve read by her are fantastic. In this particular book, a once-party girl, Remy, has rules about love and dating. After the initial rush of feelings and before it’s too serious, she dumps her current guy. That is until she meets Dexter. He is a musician and is a slob. She hates musicians and slob, but there is something about Dexter that makes it impossible for Remy to dump him. That is until she does… I was so caught up in this book that I read through the night and breakfast the next day. My mom had to tear it out of my hands when we went to the beach. Dessen writes from the heart of a broken teenager with a bad role model for love. Her mom is working on husband number five. Her brother is an oddity that anyone can relate to. Remy herself is a character that will stick with you. She leaps off the page and makes you pity her or agree with her, even when she is wrong. She is a character that you feel is like that person you know or yourself or your best friend. The point is we all know a Remy. It is amazing the power of a few words to make a book truly spectacular.
