      YA readers of the female variety probably have already heard of or even read a few of the popular works of Sarah Dessen. Like the rest of her acclaimed works, Dessen weaves the story of a teenage girl, the plot of which is, naturally, romantically-centered.

      However, unusually for the author, the heroine, Remy, isn’t an introvert who’s always been a boyfriendless outcast, or something to that extent.

      Quite the opposite, Remy has a tightly-knit, small group of friends who have watched her move mechanically through her half-yearly romances since the eighth grade, while


      also watching Remy see her mother cycle through husbands like most people do with their laundry.

      Remy’s father was an earlier specimen, who died before meeting Remy herself but not preceding the recording of now-classic-hit song “This Lullaby”.

      Although it was written about her, Remy despises it casually throughout the entire novel, not understanding its appeal, for she doesn’t get how its singers’ promises within the first few lines of the song that “I will let you down” can possibly be inspiring enough to be churned out of speakers at bat mitzvahs, wedding ...


      • receptions, parties and such.

        Remy’s mother is about to marry Don Davis, car dealer and Ensure-chugger, while Remy is about to leave for college in the fall.

        She is sure she can handle a quick, choppy summer romance, the kind that she can easily sever ties with in a few weeks, maybe months.

        However, she’s not ready for Dexter, a determined, resolute boy who’s the lead singer of his undiscovered band Truth Squad and also happens to be stuck on the idea of softening the toughened Remy.

        The book, separated by months and

        then by chapters, is an easy but enjoyable read that will leave teen girls agonized, delighted, or sympathetic with the main characters’ actions at points.

        The side stories of friendly but immature drummer John Miller and Remy’s sensitive friend Lissa, among others, provide entertainment as well.

        Overall, I liked this book, because of its possession of a unique cast of characters (who make a short appearance in a scene of another of the author’s books, the considerably lengthier Just Listen) and contemporary setting and storyline.

        Recommended for, once again, fans of YA–probably more for females.
