This Lullaby (2002)
by Sarah Dessen
No current Talk conversations about this book.
One of my favorite Sarah Dessen books. Ugh I love Remy and Dexter together so much. Such a good comfort read. ( )
This one was boring, it could've been shortened by at least 50 or 100 pages. I also was creeped out by Dexter. Talk about stalking.
After reading [b:second chance summer|11071466|Second Chance Summer|Morgan Matson|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1337189920s/11071466.jpg|15992791] this makes me feel like I was dipped into a vat of angst. Not a nice feeling.
Hey, maybe it's just me. This does contribute heavily into deductions from the score.
Thick angst. But real interesting too. Life from the other side of the glass.
There's a serious drinking problem going on.
And lots and lots of denial too.
The angst comments stand. Mostly.
It's well-written and interesting. And makes a good YA book.
An enjoyable ride.
And I'm glad for Lissa
Okay I still hold everything I previously said. Dexter is lovely and Remy is extremely annoying, whatever Dexter finds "adorable" in her is a mystery to me, and the whole thing is just confusing in that sense. That said, I really liked one of the Remy/Dex scenes specifically, the one in the grocery store.
Overall, I liked it, but the main character made the read kind of annoying as a whole at times -but only at times. I also laughed a lot whenever the whole band was on the scene. Forgettable, but nice.
I think this may have been the first Dessen novel I read; it remains one of my favourites.
