Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite authors. She always finds a way to create her characters in such a way that they capture my heart and keep me so enthralled that I can't put the book down. Even with the happy endings I usually don't want the story to end. This story, however, was very disappointing. I found it difficult to connect with any of the characters, and found both love interests completely annoying. The story itself was slow and there were many times I was so frustrated just waiting to understand the point of the story. It does have an okay ending, but overall I just felt like the story was flat - especially for a Sarah Dessen book.
The narrator was okay. I know some people mentioned being annoyed by her voice or lack of enthusiasm, but I think the voice fit the main character's personality very well.
I hope the next Sarah Dessen book is better, I would hate for this to become a trend for her. Since I own all of her other books in hard cover. I don't think I'll be purchasing this one though.
