My favorite Sarah Dessen book is The Truth About Forever. Macy’s life is structured and predictable. When her boyfriend leaves for Brain Camp all summer long, her summer looks like it will be long, studious, and boring. Then she takes a job at Wish catering, and her wacky coworkers, including a gorgeous guy name Wes, show Macy that predicatbility and perfection isn’t the only way to be happy. This books got it all: romance, fantastic friends, summer job drama, a believable protagonist, and plenty of humor.
Swing by the store to pick up one of Sarah’s many books, and let us know your favorites.
Happy Summer Reading,
