Last night I finished another Sarah Dessen book, This Lullaby, which I also enjoyed very much, if not quite as much as The Truth About Forever. This one was actually a little different from the formula - Remy, the main character, has a close group of friends and doesn't lack for confidence or assertiveness. However, she is very cynical when it comes to love due to her mother's numerous, short-lived marriages. The summer before she leaves for college she meets a guy who makes her question those ideas. I'm making it sound like a typical teen romance though, which it's definitely not. It's very funny and even the characters that initially seem one note reveal depths you wouldn't expect.
