What Happened to Goodbye
Studious good girl Auden, named for the poet, makes a snap decision to spend her summer before college at her father's beach house rather than with her mother, a professor whose bad habits include male grad students. Auden's parents divorced three years earlier, a split she's not yet over. Her remarried father has already produced another heir, a colicky baby named Thisbe (after a tragic figure from Shakespeare), with his young wife, Heidi, who owns a boutique. Feeling sympathy for stressed-out Heidi, Auden agrees to do the shop's bookkeeping, providing her with an instant social circle the teenage clerks plus the boys from the neighboring bike rental, including hunky, wounded Eli. Both night owls, Auden and Eli bond when he coaxes her to experience childhood activities bowling, food fights, learning to ride a bike that her insufferable parents never bothered to provide. Auden's thoughtful observations make for enjoyable reading this is solid if not "top shelf" Dessen: another summer of transformation in which the heroine learns that growing up means "propelling yourself forward, into whatever lies ahead, one turn of the wheel at a time." Ages 12 up.
My personal fav.
It really is. I've read it handful of times since I first got my hands on it in highschool. I fell in love with it. It is just perfect. Recommend to everyone :)
Sarah dessen is fantabulous! :)
Sarah dessen is my favorite author of all time! She has amazing writing skills. I have fallen in love with everyone one of her books that I have read, and wouldn't put them down! This is one of my favorites. It's an amazing story that I adored. I would definitely recommend any of her books to anybody! They are amazing and this novel is that I believe one her best so far! I can't wait till the next book and you should definitely read this amazingly wonderful book!
I love Sarah's books! Especially thins once that is definitely one of my favorites, it really shows how important all the small things in life are to a person and also how it's never too late to get things right; no ,after how long it may take you. It also shows some of the stresses that come when one is getting ready for their first year of university or college, things are changing and friendships are put to the ultamite test. But from the looks of it, with determination anyone can do pretty much anything they set their minds on.
Good on you Sarah! Keep them coming!
