I’ve been hearing amazing things about this book! I’ve already preordered my copy and can’t wait to read it!!
“He lives in a hole in the ground, dresses funny, and occasionally eats his assistants,” Eve said. “Define crazy.” Claire closed her eyes. “Okay. I think he wants to put my brain in a jar and wire it into the machine.” LOL, gotta love crazy Myrnin.
Paradise had me completely engrossed from the start. It actually reminded me a lot of the movie Whip It, except, swap the skating with drumming and the roller derby with playing at Texapolooza. Paisley’s parents really reminded me of the parents in that movie. Paisley’s mom wants her to have opportunities that stretch beyond their […]
Eli, with his shoulder length dark hair, tan skin and green eyes, is the loner, quiet one of the Dessen boys. I don’t want to tell you too much about Eli because I feel it would take away some of the intrigue about him you get from the book. Auden at one time describes him […]
Nate might not be the most popular of the nice Dessen boys, but he definitely touched my heart. Here is what you see when you first lay eyes on him: blonde, jock, rich guy. When you look a little closer you notice he has white blonde, yellow to brown multi-hue hair, bright blue eyes with […]
Owen is definitely the most physically intimidating of the Dessen boys. He is described as “tall (6’4”) and muscular, with broad shoulders and thick biceps. And he always wore boots with thick rubber soles that made him seem even bigger, his steps heavier.” He is insanely passionate about music and is never seen without his […]
Wes was the first Dessen boy I fell for, as The Truth About Forever was my first Sarah Dessen read. I stayed up until 4am waiting for that moment. You know the one: “It’s so she can fly.” Run, Macy!! :D I still kind of juggle him and Dexter for the top spot. Can you […]
Dexter stole my heart. From the moment he bumps (literally) into Remy at the car dealership and proclaims to her that he feels a bond, that he senses they were meant to be, he had me. I mean, who does that?! Who goes up to a person you see from across the room and tells […]
Norman is probably THE sweetest of the Dessen boys. He’s also not as widely adored as the other Dessen boys. That’s partly because the book isn’t really about him and Colie. Nonetheless, he deserves recognition. He has that whole surfer look going on, he’s eccentric and an amazing artist. He collects sunglasses and incorporates them […]

A full week of Sarah Dessen awesomeness!! Go to either of their sites throughout this week and check out what others are doing to celebrate! So […]
