What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen This was my first book that I have read of Dessen's and I am now a big fan. I don't really know why it took me so long to pick one of her books up, though I have had a few on my shelfs for quite awhile now. I'm generally not a huge contemporary fan, but do occasionally read them. I'm realizing now that I should pick them up more! Sarah Dessen is a beautiful writer, her words just flow together. This book was an easy read that I was able to start right before having my son and picking it back up a few weeks later without forgetting any of the details. Usually if I do this I have to reread, which is a pain. My mother in law even started reading it! What Happened to Goodbye is a great contemporary that will grip you from the start and make you truly feel for the main character, McLean, who I really did love! The characters are dynamic, realistic, relatable, and lovable. The storyline follows McLean as she discovers who she is and it is realistic and identifiable for many. Overall I really enjoyed this one and give it a rating of "Pick of the Litter."
