Today is the Release of Along for the Ride

So, today is a very special day. It is the release of the new Sarah Dessen book entitled Along for the Ride. Sarah is an incredibly good author. All her books are amazing. Here is a summary that I have found about Along for the Ride.

It's been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents' divorce - or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live. A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she's been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

I pre-ordered the book last weekend. So, I should be getting it later today when the mail comes. But, I am very excited to read it. Y'all should go out and check out Along for the Ride.
