Alexandria Woolfe asked Sarah Dessen:

I loved Someone Like You. What inspired you to write it? The beginning was very emotion filled.

Sarah Dessen When I was in ninth grade, the most popular boy in our school was killed in a motorcycle accident. It was the first time I'd known someone my age who passed away: one day he was there in Health class, and then he just...wasn't. It was a pivotal moment for me, and I always wanted to write about it. But I didn't know him that well, and his story was HIS story. So I began with a similar situation, and then created the book from there.
