Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Annabel, the youngest of three beautiful sisters, has a bitter falling out with her best friend — the popular and exciting Sophie — she suddenly finds herself isolated and friendless. But then she meets Owen — a Loner, passionate about music and his weekly radio show, and always determined to tell the truth. And when they develop a friendship, Annabel is not only introduced to new music but is encouraged to listen to her own inner voice. With Owen's help, can Annabel find the courage to speak out about what exactly happened the night her friendship with Sophie came to a screeching halt?

Review:

"This is young adult fiction at its best, delving into the minds of complex, believable teens, bringing them to life, and making readers want to know more about them with each turn of the page." School Library Journal

Review:

"Dessen spins her own quality tale of a young girl finding her voice, and finding an audience....Teen girls who meet Dessen for the first time here will be looking for her backlist." Booklist

Review:

"Dessen weaves a sometimes funny, mostly emotional, and very satisfying story." VOYA

Review:

"Dessen manages to create characters that feel as if they could step off the page and into real life." Children's Literature

Review:

"Not deep, but absorbing and enjoyable." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

This multilayered tale tells the story of a year in the life of a family coming to terms with the imperfections beneath its perfect facade. Includes a teaser chapter of Dessen's new hardcover, Lock and Key.

Synopsis:

A romantic and empowering book about bullying

Noelle's life is all about survival. Even her best friend doesn't know how much she gets bullied, or the ways her mom neglects her. Noelle's kept so much about her life a secret for so long that when her longtime crush Julian Porter starts paying attention to her, she's terrified. Surely it's safer to stay hidden than to risk the pain of a broken heart. But when the antagonism of her classmates takes a dramatic turn, Noelle realizes it's time to stand up for herself--and for the love that keeps her holding on.

I normally don't read books in the first place, but this was good. I read Speak and two weeks ago I told my teacher that Annabel reminded me of Melinda. So when I read this synopsis today to tell a friend what the book was about, I sent her the link for this, and then I read the link, and then saw Melinda's name. I then sent the link to my teacher to show her that I have a good taste in books. I understood right away what happened to her from how she acted and compared her to Melinda. I do disagree with what they say about this having too much drama, but some families do have things like this happen to them. It might not always happen, but rest assured, it does. Anyway, this was a good book.

I love Sarah Dessen books because they are filled with problems that normal teenagers have, but in extreme situations. This was one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books and I completely recommend it to all teenagers and also parents.
