Someone Like You - Sarah Dessen I was disappointed by the last Dessen book I read, but I was holding on hope because I still love her writing–sometimes the book just isn’t a good fit for me, though, and unfortunately, this book and I did not click.

However, I found myself angry and pissed off for most of the book because of the insensitivity portrayed. Some reviewers think it’s better to wait until they cool off to review a book they disliked, but I think I write my reviews better when I’m still feeling emotional over what I’ve read.Read more?
