Featured excerpt from the book at USA TODAY.
First of all, I am still in love with the new Dessen covers and her next book is aiding my love for them even more by following suit. Second, IT'S SARAH DESSEN. She is one of those YA contemporary authors that I will always read. ALWAYS. I've said it in multiple reviews before, and I'll say it again, she is that GO TO author that I'll recommend to anyone who wants a well-rounded YA contemporary story. She brings so much to every story she writes. This woman owns it.
After reading the excerpt featured on USA Today, I got even more excited for this novel. I adore the beach side town of Colby and I can not wait to go back and visit it again with a story of new characters, which will be instant new loves!
