Sarah Dessen

                                      A new day. A new place. A new life. Come along with me as I read my first ever Sarah Dessen book.

Author-Sarah Dessen
Title-What Happened To Goodbye
My Rating-3.5/5
Genre-Fiction ; High School
Format- Paperback

Synopsis- Since her parents' bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother's new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out. 

Combining Sarah Dessen's trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbyeis irresistible reading.(Goodreads)

                                                               I like this book because it is remarkable. It shows its hard when you move often. McLean could have been a stronger character because of what she had been through. She also it change her personally because of where she live. How will us (readers) know which personality is which. You.can learn from this book because it shows you can be yourself and don't change anything about you to impress or fit in with the crowd. Allot of teens, young adults, and adults might have hard times in life but remember to always stay true to yourself and you can always overcome various obstacles no matter how big or small they are.

                                                               Other than that I really like it. Good book to read on the beach you can enjoy. I didn't like the relationship with her and her mom but no everything in life is perfect. Beautiful writing style (4/5) and the synopsis was interesting. I would recommended this book to "Middle School" teens and "High School" teens.

                                                                I could relate to Mc.Lean because I know how hard it is to adjust to a new lifestyle you really haven`t been comfortable. Another thing that I like is the author made her slowly come out of her shell and experience new things that has never really been presented to her. It showed her father was also a workaholic which is very realistic. However, there could have been a little bit close and had more chemistry.

                                                                I like the romance between the two characters because Mc.Lean is a very cocky person and doesn't have allot of faith in herself or anything she does. Bravo Ms. Sarah and I cannot wait to do other reviews on you book. The cover (4/5), writing style (3.5/5) .
