Publisher Comments:

Never underestimate the power of friendship.

 

When Colie goes to spend the summer at the beach, she doesnt expect much.

 

But Colie didnt count on meeting Morgan and Isabel.

 

Through them, she learns what true friendship is all about, and finally starts to realize her potential.

 

And that just might open the door to her first chance at love. . . .

 

“A down-to-earth Cinderella story. . . captures that special feeling.” —The New York Post

What Happened to Goodbye

Synopsis:

While her mother, aerobics queen Kiki Sparks, spends the summer touring Europe, fifteen-year-old Colie Sparks is stuck in sleepy Colby, North Carolina. But she's not complaining. For one thing, her Aunt Mira is a sweet, laid-back eccentric; for another, no one knows that back home in Charlotte Colie is seen as a formerly-fat "golf-course slut," the school scapegoat. Then, by fate or by accident, Colie lands a waitressing job, where she meets Morgan and Isabel. The two wisecracking--and wise--20something waitresses help her turn her life around, and realize the potential that has been there all along. Sarah Dessen's newest novel is poignant, humorous, and full of characters to cherish--what readers are coming to expect from this extraordinary young talent.

Synopsis:

"Sit down", Isabel said, kicking aside one white sandal and a pair of shorts to pull out the chair. The dressing table itself was a sea of little bottles and containers, so covered with cosmetics that you couldn't even see the surface. I looked at myself in the mirror and wondered what I was doing there.<P>Isabel pushed some more stuff aside and leaned against the dressing table. "Look, Colie. I have something to say to you, and I'm just gonna shoot it straight. Okay?"<P" considered this. It couldn't be any worse than what had already happened. "Okay".<P>She tucked her hair behind her ear, took a deep breath and let it out. Then she said, "I really think you should pluck your eyebrows".<P>This hadn't been exactly what I was expecting.

The minute I started to read, I fell in love with this book instantly. Unlike many main characters whom the reader comes to love as the story unfolds, Colie was wonderful from the beginning. I truly felt for her and I wish this book had been around when I was in my early teens. There are some wonderful messages here about making the best of a situation, being yourself and learning to let go of the past. It was very hard as I neared the end, knowing I would have to say goodbye to Colie, but the memory of this story will stay with me for a long time.
