The Official Community for Sarah Dessen fans looking to talk about books, writing and all things Sarah!
Hey there! Im currently reading 'This Lullaby; by (the awesome) Sarah Dessen. I decided to write my thoughts about it so far. Im on chapter 11 at the moment. Can I just make it clear that its absolutely amazing! Its a romantic, humorous, novel for teens around the age of 14-15-16 depending on how mature you are because there is a few swearing and all those things in some of the chapters. That is probably the only thing Im not to found of, but the rest is no doubt 100%!
so, i've put my other book on hold, and started thinking of a new book.
its about a girl named mary (her real name is opal) who is from an all-female family called harlots. they intentionally fall in love with men, and use their mind-control powers to kill them.…Continue

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.
Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.
Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?
Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?
Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.
