Book Review: What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

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 her neighbor Dave, an academic superstar trying to be just a regular guy, can help her find out. Combining Sarah Dessen's trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading.

I LOVED this book! There are no words to describe the extrordinary content of this book! Once again Sarah Dessen has swept me off my feet into a world of one of her characters.

I loved all of the characters in this book. They were all well formed and distinct. McClean was misunderstood and unsure of herself. Dave new exactly who he was and what he was going to do and new he wasn't going to change it. Mr. Sweet was excepting and kind to his daughter during her different "forms" and Mrs. Sweet was downright annoying! (in a good way)

I suggest this book to anyone who wants to read a good book. A+
