18. What Happened to Goodbye


***Who is the real McLean? 

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 Goodbye is irresistible reading.***

This is my second Sarah Dessen book.
Wow. I missed McLean. I love this book. It's relate-able, it happens every single day. I bet it's really hard to be in her shoes, might have even done the same thing if I were her (but I'm not...) :)

I love the mother-daughter bonding parts.
I like the McLean-Dave thing.

I'm pretty sure you'll like McLean too.

Love,
