I've just begun reading Sarah Dessen's books (That Summer, Someone Like You, This Lullaby, The Truth About Forever, etc.), and they're amazing! They all have great messages in the end and I really like her characters (especially in The Truth About Forever). I'd have to say my favorites of the books I've read of her's so far would probably be a tie of The Truth About Forever and Just Listen. I'm pretty much addicted to anything that she writes. I can't stop reading her books!

Agreed. I thought it was very good, too. But I really liked Wes in The Truth About Forever. He was probably my favorite guy character of her's.

Aww i love Sarah Dessen! The Truth About Forever and This Lullaby were my two favorites but i also really really enjoyed Someone Like You.

For some reason however i really didnt like Just Listen...There was something about it that didn't seem right.

But i read it very fast and didn't exactly have time to enjoy it so maybe i missed out on some important parts. I don't know..
 
Sarah Dessen is so talented. She really knows how to write her characters! And she's not afraid to tackle the issues facing us. Anyway, Just Listen is my absolute favorite. I also really enjoyed Dreamland... not that I haven't enjoyed all of them!

I didn't like That Summer that much. It just didn't seem as good as her other books. Otherwise, I liked all the rest.
