What I Thought:I think overall story was good.Some parts were a little depressing.I loved the catering crew's quirkiness.It was great it was an easy read and exciting.If I had to describe it in a line I would say it's about:a girl trying to find her way with her friends after her father's death.

Rating & Age: 3 stars.14 up.



  1. Hey, thanks for the review, Sierra! I saw this (the book that is) at the library, but I wasn't sure whether or not to get it. I read another book by Sarah Dessen called Just Listen. It had a few scenes with drinking and swearing, and there were a few kisses, but it was a good book.
    Woah! Sorry, I didn't mean to do my own little book review (sort of) of Just listen. I basically just wanted to say thanks for the book review and that I'm going to get it from the library now!

  2. Katrinka:No problem.I'll start rambling in my comments, I'm terrible! :) I was considering reading that one.I think that Sarah Dressen is a good writer, very intense and exciting and good small romances.The quirky characters are what I love. And it seems like it's always got a meaning.The character is going through a milestone you know? A big change.Thanks for the mini review and I'm glad you liked mine :)
    Do you have a blog?I would love to follow it if you do!Sierra

  3. This is one of my favorite books! I loved the 'working on a catering crew' storyline and I also loved how Wes and Macy were like friends the whole book. And then at the end, they were like, "Oh, I love you." I don't know, I just thought their relationship was really sweet and all. Hehe, Sarah Dessen is such an excellent writer I think.


If you have book news or anything!
I'd love to hear about it =)
