I just love Sarah Dessen! Serioulsy; this is the third book of hers I've read and I have yet to be anything less than amazingly in awe of her writing. If you're listening Sarah (which... you're probably not) I love you!
I just found a collection of eight of her books on ebay for $70 but I know that I would most likely be murdered by my mother if I bought them. Hastagsadface.
Mclean (super odd name I know) lives with her dad, and they travel around fixing up restaurants. Mclean loves this and would rather make up a new identify for herself in each new town than go back and live with her cheating mother. But when they arrive in the newest town, Lakeview, Mclean finds herself falling into old habits, falling back into herself. Life here may be everything she has ever wanted, but of course, your past always has a way of catching up to you, and Mlean and her tad have a tendancy of running away from it.
Heartwarming as always, this book is like an new friend that I'm sure I will always keep with me.
