Sara Dessen delivers the bittersweet story of a dissatisfied model and the offbeat guy who teaches her that only truth can set her free. As her beautiful, self-assured image flashes across the TV screen, Annabel Greene is the ideal 17-year-old girl. But the glitter of her commercials is a far cry from Annabel is a social outcast. Can music-obsessed Owen with his commitment to truth convince Annabel to reveal a dark secret and bravely confront reality?

Amazing book. She gives us well rounded characters with a great plot. Matter covered is addressed respectfully, but briefly. Soooo well-written!

Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He only has one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time - when not playing video games and avoiding Earl's terrifying brothers - making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don't make them for other people. Until Rachel.

>"Lily?" My stomach dropped as a tall, dark-haired man stepped into view. Had he been hiding between the trees? "No. Sorry." Gulping, I took a step back. "I'm not Lily." He shook his head, a satisfied grin on his face. "No. You are Lily." "I'm Summer. You have the wrong person." For months, Summer is trapped in a cellar with the man who took her - and three other girls: Rose, Poppy, and Violet. His perfect, pure flowers. His family. But flowers can't survive long cut off from the sun, and time is running out....

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cellar to be better than the print version?

I liked the narration.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cellar?

A memorable moment was when the flowers first meet one another. Morbid.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Fantastic narration is key in this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book creeped me out.

This is a solid book - even better than 1 that precedes it, in my opinion. The voices make it even better!!
