Savvy coming-of-age tale is great for mature teens.

Families can talk about the popularity of Sarah Dessen's novels. Why does her material work so well for teens? If you've read Dessen's other books, how does this one compare? What ideas recur in her work? Sex and underage drinking are just part of the scenery in this novel. Do you find this portrayal realistic? Do you think there should have been more discussion of consequences, or do you like Dessen's approach?

Disappointing

This was boring to me, compared to dessen's other novels. the storyline just didn't pull me in, and the characters weren't very relatable.
