Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
This is actually the first Sarah Dessen book I’ve ever read, and I thought it was fantastic. Dessen takes on some big issues, including a great depiction of girls watching out for each other around a creepy guy, while at the same time writing a satisfying romance. Sydney’s journey is wonderfully written. I’ll definitely be reading more Dessen.
