Chick Lit

This past weekend was all about reading the girl books. I try really hard to read all genres...but sometimes you just need a weekend of reading the feel good girl books. I promise to get back on mixing up some of the books, but for right now this is what I have.

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
After a scandal involving her mother and a famous college basketball coach rocked her family and her old hometown, McClean decided to live with her dad. His job as a restaurant consultant requires they pick up often, and at each new place she carefully selects who she’ll be—Eliza, Beth, or someone else with a new name and different interests. It’s easier this way for McClean, who is reluctant to form any true attachments. Then at their latest stop, McClean does something she’s not done in a long while—reveal her real name. But who is this McClean and is she ready to forgive her mother, fall for the boy next door, and finally stick around? (Taken from Amazon.)

Mrs. Lassley's Review
I LOVED THIS BOOK! Sarah Dessen is already a great author, but so many of her books are focused on the relationship between a boy and a girl. In What Happened to Goodbye, the focus is on the family and why McClean doesn't feel like she can show who she really is, or why it is so painful to do so. This book just became my favorite of her's!!
