Book Review

by Sarah Dessen

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult

RT Rating

Not many authors write with as much heart as Dessen. That being said, this is not her strongest offering. It’s a sweet premise with likable characters, and prior fans might not be disappointed — though they won’t be surprised, either.

It’s summertime and Emaline is busy working for the family business, getting ready for college and hanging out with her longtime boyfriend, Luke. Living year-round in a beach town tends to get pretty monotonous, but her world is shaken by the arrival of her biological father, half-brother — and a new boy. Where does this all leave her and Luke? (VIKING, Jun., 435 pp., $19.99, ISBN: 9780670785605, HC, 12 & Up)
