This lullaby, Sarah Dessen. He was a portly guy, with an ample stomach and a bit of a bald spot: the word doughy came to mind.

This lullaby, Sarah Dessen. But he adored my mother, God help him. What do you need from me today?

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way). Sarah Dessen is the author of thirteen novels, which include the New York Times bestsellers The Moon and More, What Happened to Goodbye, Along for the Ride, Lock and Key, Just Listen, The Truth About Forever, and This Lullaby. Her first two books, That Summer and Someone Like You, were made into the movie How to Deal. Dessen’s books are frequently chosen for the Teens’ Top Ten list and the list of Best Fiction for Young Adults.

Sarah Dessen's THIS LULLABY is one of the best teen books I've ever read. It's the story of Remy, a girl who has no faith in love. Part of this is because her own father never even saw her, only wrote a now-famous song, called "This Lullaby," about her before he died. It certainly doesn't help that her mother has been married four times, and, at the beginning of the novel, is about to have her fifth wedding.

As Dessen’s body of work expands, her novels deepen. There are few things I can tell you about this book. First, I think it’s different from the others. Most of my other narrators are quieter, more introspective types: they hang back watching everything, processing it, and reporting on the drama of their showier, more outgoing friends. Think Casey in That Summer, Rina in Dreamland, Isabel in Keeping the Moon, that kind of thing.

This Lullaby (2002) is a young adult novel written by Sarah Dessen. Remy is an eighteen-year-old who is about to leave for college. Her father, a musician, wrote his one and only hit song the day she was born. The song, called "This Lullaby," became extremely popular, but he died soon after its release. Now, Remy's mother is getting married for the fifth time. After her mother's previous failed marriages, love is something that Remy doesn't believe exists.

Author: Sarah Dessen. Author Sarah Dessen’s ability to write novels that are both crowd pleasers and literary masterpieces of YA fiction is showcased beautifully in This Lullaby. Subtle yet completely absorbing, Lullaby is peopled with breathtakingly believable, three-dimensional characters, the very best of which is the bitter, broken Remy herself.

I had expected more from This Lullaby after LOVING The Truth About Forever, but it was kind of a let down.

This Lullaby read more New Adult than Young Adult. The characters seemed older than 18 with their fake IDs and long history of partying. That being said, I enjoyed it. I eagerly read the whole thing, desperate to find out what would happen between Dexter and Remy.

Dexter was a swoon-worthy lead (although he's no Wes...). He was so sweet with his dog Monkey and I liked that he was part of a band, thus challenging Remy's rule to never date a musician. But I would've liked a little more depth from him. Why did he drop out of Business School? Why is he so passionate about music?

But my biggest pet peeve with this story was Remy's voice...it was so negative and cynical, which was okay at first, but got really irritating by the end. I would've loved more growth from her as a character.

Overall, this was a different sort of contemporary YA novel, not so much a romance as a story about a girl learning to open her heart up to love after watching her mother struggle through four failed marriages.

Hmm, I wanted to like this book. I loved Truth About Forever and Just Listen. I am looking for the same type of "magic," that I found in those books in her other works and I haven't found it. I'll start with a few good points. The descriptions and writing were beautiful in some spots. Dessen has a great command of the English language and knows how to tell a story.

A few bad points, spoilers may follow. I had a really hard time liking Remy. The smoking, the drinking, the sex, the swearing. She was just a "rougher" character then some of her other female leads. I get that she was trying to change and turning over a new leaf, etc, but those changes didn't make her likable. She was still kind of bitchy. I think that was sort of the point, because she says at one time it was something she was proud of. But apart from her mother's many marriages, and something that happened in her past, I didn't feel like I got a good enough reason why she was proud of being a bitch? Why would anyone want to be known for being mean? I guess that concept is just foreign to me.

I felt like I wanted more. When the book teetered on giving me what I wanted it would continually fall short. Instead of pivotal moments being narrated and two people interacting and exchanging words that meant something, those moments were assumed and faded to black. I wanted her to dive into those conversations between two people and have them actually tell the truth. Like it was always on the surface of something great, but never went deeper under the surface. And when two characters went under the surface it was a small blip on the map then they were right back to the surface.

The main character just wasn't very self-aware.

When I started reading Dreamland, I felt like it was going to be a book I struggled to finish. I just couldn't get connected to Caitlin and I felt like I was reading from a distance instead of being right there. About halfway through, that changed.

Caitlin has always lived in the shadow of her older sister, Cass. So when Cass leaves one night without warning, Caitlin feels like it is her responsibility to step up and fill in that "perfect child" role. At the same time, she doesn't want to be Cass. She doesn't want to have to be perfect. She's confused and doesn't know which way to go. Her confusion ends up leading her down the wrong road, sending her life spiraling down a hole she never thought she'd end up in.

In the attempt to step out of her sister's shadow, she falls into Rogerson's. The relationship between these two is heartbreaking, horrific, and realistic. Caitlin's confusion over how she feels about Rogerson is what makes it all worse because I can understand her thinking. Reading about her struggles made my heart ache for her. He met her when she was already down and only brought her lower.

I think the reasons I didn't find myself completely loving this book are because of that initial disconnect between me and Caitlin, as well as how blind those closest to Caitlin were. Out of everyone that knew and loved her, not one took enough notice of her downward spiral. I understand why it was done that way, but I still wish one of them had shown something more.

Dreamland is a quick read, but a powerful one. It shows that sometimes the weak are actually the strongest and that what we see on the outside my only be an illusion.
