Who is the real McLean?

Since her parents’ bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother’s new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out.

Combining Sarah Dessen’s trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading.


I looooove Sarah Dessen and I CANNOT wait for What Happened to Goodbye to be in my hands!! She was my first venture into Contemporary YA with The Truth About Forever and quickly became a favorite of mine. I immediately had to get my hands on all Sarah Dessen books! This Lullaby, Just Listen, Lock and Key, and Along for the Ride have also become some of my favorite books. If you have not discovered her for yourself or if you haven’t read the ones I just named, go out and pick one up!
