Along for the Ride; Sarah Dessen

Along for the Ride Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not quite my cup of tea, but I can certainly see why Sarah Dessen's so popular with my students. This felt like a Joci Picault/Maeve Binchy/"AGA-saga" for teen readers - and that's not a bad thing.

There's no graphic sex, or language, which makes these more palatable than, say the Gossip/Clique/A-List books, and the plot (while predictable) is interesting enough to get girls reading more.

Biggest quibble? There's nothing equivalent for boys, a group that really needs the new Harry Potter to keep them reading.
