Book Review: What Happened to Goodbye

I read this book a while ago but felt like writing a review for it... maybe its just me procrastinating about studying for my midterm. Anyways, I absolutely love Sarah Dessen books and I could read every one of them over and over again and not get tired. Here's her latest masterpiece.

What Happened to GoodbyeWhat Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As much as I liked this book (I don't think there is a single Sarah Dessen book that I don't like) I don't think its the best one or even close to the top 5. I don't know what it was exactly but I felt like this book lacked something, that things that made all the other books so great. Maybe it's just that I didn't really connect as well with the two main characters (especially Dave).

With all that being said, I still really enjoyed the book and the three stars I felt like giving are probably just a result of having really high expectations for Sarah Dessen books. I liked the story, I liked the character's ups and downs and McLean's realization moments and it really was a good read. It's just not my favorite Sarah Dessen book I guess.

By the way, in case you are wondering, my favorite is Along for the Ride. I could dream about Eli all day. sigh.
