Waiting On: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
To be published: May 5, 2015 by Viking Juvenile
Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?

Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.

The uber-popular Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth novel, sure to delight her legions of fans. [goodreads]

I am definitely a member of said legion!  As a Sarah Dessen fan, I have had my eye on this new one for quite some time.  I adore her novels because they bring such a well rounded theme, touching on all parts of a story, not just one. This novel in particular poses an emotional punch, one that I have faith Sarah Dessen will deliver at her best.  My excitement knows no bounds and I cannot wait until I have the next Dessen read in my hands!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


  1. It is written by Sarah Dessen, so obviously I will read it! Some of Dessen's books have basically saved my life. I love everything she writes and I cannot wait to get my hand's on this one!

  2. Sarah Dessen isn't my favorite author like she is for so many others, but this one does sound amazing. I'm looking forward to it! Thanks for sharing, G!

  3. I've never read anything by Sarah Dessen, but my sister loves all of her books. I keep promising that I'll read them, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. This one seems more like one I'll like, so I'll start with it and then check out her other books.

  4. I love Sarah Dessen and am always (attempting) to wait patiently for her new book. However, I don't really like this cover. I will still read it without a doubt, it just doesn't have the same charm the other books have.

  5. Yes! Waiting for this one too - love Sarah Dessen!!
