Srah just finished school and is going to collage in the fall, so she isn’t looking for a serious relationship. Even with her novels which I didn’t particularly like or connected with, like this one, I still feel well and satisfied with her stories. What’s so bad about being clumsy, anyway?

I completely adored and xessen over Dexter.

Sure, the break-up-then-quick-make-up was alive and sadah, but either it simply worked better here because I was already smitten with the love story, or I’m just becoming immune to Dessen’s signature moves.

That we were, in fact, meant to be together. Faith in love bear with me here and just faith in general.

I mean, this is basically a perfect book, full of family drama, close best friends and of course some serious romance. There are no guarantees, really, but there is an assurance that everything will be okay.


Our mind is the most powerful thing, it can have a great hold on how we act, and lullabu can prevent us from being happy. What is your favorite Sarah Dessen book? This was a so-so book sarzh your first read, probably because you read it during the New Year and you weren’t really feeling the characters nor the situation back then.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

The other main character is as awesome as Remy. Her mom is such a great character and I loved reading about the two of them together. There’s llullaby trio of Remy’s faithful girlfriends, all addicted to “Xtra Large Zip” Diet Desssn Jess, weepy Lissa, and Chloe, who shares Remy’s dark sense of humor—as well as Dexter’s entourage of fellow band members, as incompetent at managing money as they are at keeping their rental house clean. It should be expanded to provide more balanced coverage that includes real-world context.

Basically, this is a story about faith. To truly live life is to always make risks.

This Lullaby

Like every single one of Remy’s boyfriends AND friends was a plot tool, nothing more. So I sat down, tossed up one of those Oh Well looks that always precedes a novel, and out came Remy.

Dexter is outgoing, perhaps he can come on too strong, he’s friendly sqrah unafraid to speak his mind. When Dexter overhears Remy saying that she only wants him to be a summer fling, they break up.

This Lullaby and Along for the Ride are just entertaining. If you are looking for contemporary books that are equally as gripping as Thrillers but in a different way, then Sarah Dessen is your author and I would highly recommend you to pick this one up!

She’s a bitch, a slut, and totally selfish. I absolutely recommend it!


He is messy and a musician, two of her least favorite traits. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I thought I would be happy that I got it done because one more book read right and I lullay chat with my friend Erin, whom I llulaby read this wonderful jem of a novel with?

Luckily, Remy has her friends, who support her in her decision to keep things between her and guys light. She’s almost always the one to dump guys, not the other way around.

His charm and all around adorable-ness made me want to reach into the story and pull him out. No, she couldn’t possibly say sorry. You should start on this one because it might be my second favorite book by her.

The way him and Remy clicked was somehow both magical and real and their playful interactions had me smiling and laughing out loud.

The progress in the relationship between the main characters is very subtle. Everyone except Dexter, who wants it to be more than a summer thing, who has faith in their relationship.

Her father, a musician, wrote his one and only hit song the day she was born. We see her, we hear her but The main character Remy is very relatable to many teenage girls, and even to young women who remember being the way Remy is when they were in high school.

Plus it was a struggle to get through at times because I wasn’t in the mood the genre.
