C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that's why she's cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm's length. But Ambrose isn't about to be discouraged, now that he's met the one girl he really wants.

Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humor, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself.



Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments I think Dessen is one of those authors I just can't miss.


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments She has quickly become a favorite for me. :)


Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments If I'm not mistaken, she was the author that got me into contemporary.


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Me too, probably. I mean, I've read some contemporary for a long time, but I didn't read as much until I started reading her and Morgan Matson.

Hallie Duffy (halliejoy_) I look forward to reading another Dessen book, I think her Contemporaries are great. Would anyone like to buddy read this with me? I am new to this group and am a little unsure of how this works.


C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Jackie and I will be starting on release day, if you want to join us. That's what the date in the thread name is for. :)

Leah | 2036 comments Is it all right if I read this today instead of the 9th? My copy is due back to the library before the 9th.
