Author: Sarah Dessen
Stars (out of 5): 1
Review: I began reading Sarah Dessen books this year starting with What Happened to Goodbye and I thought it was great. I thought this book would be also great yet I wasn’t drawn in as much as the other books.

Teen Book Review: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close


Title: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This book was written so beautifully and the characters really came alive to me. This delicate story is really powerful and thought-provoking. I most enjoyed Oskar’s narration and his interesting observations. They made the book so emotional and personal.

Teen Book Review: The Truth about Forever


Title: The Truth about Forever
Author: Sarah Dessen
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: Sarah Dessen comes through with another good read for me and I highly recommend reading this book. It’s something almost everyone can relate too such as the feeling of wanting to change and the feeling of wanting for everything to stay as they are when a tragic event occurs when Macy’s father dies of a heart attack. We’ve all felt what it’s like losing someone and this book illustrates that everyone grieves at a different pace.
