This Lullabyby Sarah Dessen
Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times bestseller
Shes got it all figured out.
Or does she? When it comes to relationships, Remys got a whole set of rules.
Never get too serious. Never let him break your heart. And never, ever date a musician.
But then Remy meets Dexter, and the rules dont seem to apply anymore.
Could it be that shes starting to understand what all those love songs are about?
Remy and Dexter jump off the pages into the hearts of readers, who will wish for a romance like this of their own.” —Booklist

"This modern-day romance narrated by a cynical heroine offers a balance of wickedly funny moments and universal teen traumas. High school graduate Remy has some biting commentary about love, including her romance-writer mother's betrothal to a car dealer ('He put one hand on my shoulder, Dad-style, and I tried not to remember all the stepfathers before him that had done the same thing.... They all thought they were permanent, too') and her brother's infatuation with self-improvement guru Jennifer Anne. But when rocker Dexter 'crashes' into her life, her resolve to remain unattached starts to crack. Readers will need to hold on to their hats as they accompany Remy on her whirlwind ride, avoiding, circling and finally surrendering to Cupid's arrows. Almost as memorable as her summer romance with a heartwarmingly flawed suitor is the cast of idiosyncratic characters who watch from the sidelines. There's the trio of Remy's faithful girlfriends, all addicted to 'Xtra Large Zip' Diet Cokes: practical-minded Jess, weepy Lissa, and Chloe, who shares Remy's dark sense of humor as well as Dexter's entourage of fellow band members, as incompetent at managing money as they are at keeping their rental house clean. Those expecting a Cinderella finale for Remy will find a twist consistent with the plot's development. Contrary to any such implication in the title, this one will keep teens up reading. Ages 12-up."

Romance takes center stage in this rockin' love story from Susane Colasanti. Great for fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen!
