I was engrossed in this book from start to finish. Sarah Dessen can be a bit hit-or-miss for me, and if you read too many in one go, her plots can start to feel slightly recycled. But WHAT HAPPENED TO GOODBYE was complicated in the way the best YAs are. The beginning chapters hinted at hidden mysteries in Mclean's life - the different names, the must-orders from the restaurant's menu... they all promised a good story and I wasn't disappointed. Mclean's relationship with her parents came across as realistic - love mixed in with resentment and confusion - and at the end (view spoiler), I admit to a few sniffles. This book left me with warm fuzzy feelings.
