Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen

I go this book at a bookstore that I have been volunteering at, and boy am I glad I got this. This story was filled with love, thought, and you could really tell what the characters were feeling at times. Here is a summary of the book (taken from Sarah Dessen's website):

Halley and Scarlett have been best friends for years, sharing secrets, clothes, and crushes. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley's just her quiet sidekick. Then, at the beginning of their junior year, the balance shifts. First, Scarlett's boyfriend Michael is killed in a freak accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. For the first time, Scarlett really needs Halley. Their friendship may bend under the weight, but it'll never break--because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.

Like all of the books I have read by Sarah Dessen, I loved this. Of course, the young-teenage pregnancy is used a lot in story lines, Sarah Dessen makes this story individual. I recommend this to more older readers, because of some of the things it deals with, but if you are young, and are a "mature" reader, or a Sarah Dessen fan, I heavily recommend it.


I know I have been saying this a lot, but I would again like to say sorry for not posting that often. I have no excuse because I am on break from school and I will try to post more often. I still have to post the review of Cross My Heart and Hope yo Spy, and a few other books I have finished since then.

Silence is silver, but Books are golden...

J.Kaye- It is really hard for me to say, I have only read for, but I think there would be a tie between Just Listen and The Truth About Forever. said...
