This novel shows that we shouldn't give up easily on love even if someone you once loved is gone.

A good realistic fiction book. I haven't seen a topic dealing with this point of view in teen fiction until this book. Plus, I found Ambrose very amusing.

I have read every Sarah Dessen book and must say this is not one of my favorites. Although all of her novels tend to follow the same plot lines, this one was a little too predictable. I wasn't able to connect with the characters or develop an investment in them.

And Sarah has done it again! Honestly, you have the readers that hate the repetition in her books and then there are the readers who just keep reading and can't get enough. Although I see why certain readers may find it tiresome, I enjoy reading her work because every girl's story is uniquely her own. Take this protagonist. A young girl who has been brought up by her wedding-planner mom, she thought she had known everything from the festive mood to the crying. But then, she meets someone. I think what I like most about her books is that there is a certain innocence in love and teenagers posed. Society today glorifies a lot of physical aspects, but Sarah Dessen will pull at your heart and soul. That is the ultimate success of an author, no?

Predictable ending, and far-fetched relationships.
