Great friendships. The pleasure of doing ordinary things, like playing silly putt putt games with your brother, or experiencing the satisfaction of doing a great job at something you're good at.
The Moon and More also features earnest dates that tank, worries about college, the sadness of changing relationships, and the out-of-body feeling that comes when you realize your parents are actually flawed but good people.
I leave every Dessen town feeling as if I've visited a real place full of real people who quietly go about their business and quietly dream about things that might never come true. Admittedly, the author maintains her tendency to reference the title too many times, which is a pet peeve of mine. I enjoyed reading about Emaline's problems, but I think she could have used some more joy in this book, too.
And I have to say, I wasn't a huge fan of Theo's, so there wasn't as much swoon in this book as I'm used to in other novels by this author, although there's a hint at towards the end that something great could develop down the road. But as always, Sarah Dessen delivers a terrific summer book. I like kickass heroines who can take down their enemies with a single blow who know the exact right one-liner to toss off at the right moment, but I love the more introverted heroines like the ones found in these contemporary novels, too.

While a lot of fantasy authors indulge us by writing about the kind of girl we wish we'd been at the age of seventeen, Sarah Dessen writes about the kind of uncertain, quietly determined girl we actually were. And there's plenty of beauty and wisdom and resonance in that, too. May 05, Pages Young Adult Buy.

It could only happen in the summer. Luke is the perfect boyfriend: She is the recipient of the Margaret A.Though yes, her books do seem repetitive and yes, characters do seem to be overused, I still can't help but be excited. Was I supposed to hate Theo and root for Emaline to leave him?

Theo is a little… energetic? Emaline was conceived when her mother was only a young teen and, consequently, her family is a little different from most.
My mom. And while it is expected that Dessen's books can't all be as good as This Lullaby, I was a bit disappointed.
I mean, Morris and Luke were pretty great if you're the sort of person who can forgive Luke , but Theo and her dad were so much alike that I wanted to ask the both of them, "What the heck is wrong with you!?!? He was so obsessed with the Best of Everything that it got really old and annoying really fast.
Loves Luke. While a lot of fantasy authors indulge us by writing about the kind of girl we wish we'd been at the age of seventeen, Sarah Dessen writes about the kind of uncertain, quietly determined girl we actually were.
