I LOVE Sarah Dessen, but What Happened to Goodbye wasn't a solid 5/5 for me. Obviously, Dessen's writing is great, and most of her characters are pretty amazing. The family dynamics always have me tearing up at times. But there was just something lacking, I guess. Mclean wasn't as endearing as Dessen's previous characters, but still nonetheless enjoyable. And strangely enough, I wasn't too fond of Dave Wade, the love interest. I normally fall head over heels for Dessen's male protagonists, finding them completely honest and full of depth, but Dave was just lacking something. Or maybe I was just so accustomed to Wes or Owen that compared to them, Dave seemed too simplistic and not real enough.
