Book reviews & writing tips from a wannabe YA writer
Summary: In the summer between high school graduation and college, Remy has a plan to tie up all her loose ends so she can start fresh. Until a clumsy musician named Dexter—the exact opposite of her type—barges in on her neat little plan.
Review: A perfect read for my summer beach vacation. This is my first Dessen book, and I will definitely be reading more.
I got so wrapped up in this romance that I stayed up two hours after my family went to bed to see how it would turn out.
Here’s where Remy meets Dexter:
I just looked at him. Wrong day, buddy, I thought. You caught me on the wrong day.
“The thing is,” he said, as if we’d been discussing the weather or world politics, “I saw you out in the showroom. I was over by the tire display?”
I was sure I was glaring at him. But he kept talking.
“I just thought to myself, all of a sudden, that we had something in common. A natural chemistry, if you will. And I had a feeling that something big was going to happen. To both of us. That we were, in fact, meant to be together.”
“You got all this,” I said, clarifying, “at the tire display?”
“You didn’t feel it?” he asked.
I also loved the banter between Remy and her closest girlfriends. Kind of like the Sex in the City gals, YA style.
