What I read from June 2-June 19
Young Adult Contemporary
Sarah Dessen's latest release and definitely a bit different than the rest of her novels. Wonderful writing as always and solid characters. Her senior year is over and Emaline has one last summer before she knows everything will change. Or has it already?
A reread for me. This book is intense, emotional, powerful, heartfelt, raw with tons of ups and downs. Lennie is trying to figure out her sudden obsession with boys while trying to deal with her sisters recent death. A fabulous description from goodreads "Just as much a celebration of love as it is a portrait of loss."
Reread for me. My favorite of all Dessen's novels.
Macy has always been the one to follow all the rules but recently life hasn't been working out like it used to. After a few unexpected opportunities arise she wonders if it's worth the risks and decides to break out of her box.
Young Adult, Contemporary
Reread for me. A new town, a new name, a new chance at establishing herself. Thats how McLean's been doing it every move so far. This new place though, feels a little bit more like home.
