Title: Along for the Ride
Author: Sarah Dessen
Genre: Young Adult/Romance
“Nights have always been Auden’s time, her chance to escape everything that’s going on around her.
Then she meets Eli, a fellow insomniac, and he becomes her nocturnal tour guide.
Now, with an endless supply of summer nights between them, almost anything can happen. . . .”
- If you’ve read a lot of Sarah Dessen’s books this is going to be exactly the same.
- Auden’s dad was a huge asshole from start to finish and that wasn’t really taken care of or addressed properly.
- It’s a nice light-hearted read.
- The characters are unique and the detail in the story really brings things to life.
- I’ve read this a bunch of times and I’m still not sick of it. I think Sarah Dessen does a really good job of writing books young girls can identify with.
Would I recommend it?:
Yes, if you like stories about teenage girls finding themselves. If you like one Sarah Dessen book you’ll probably like them all, but if you read too many you start to see how similar they all are. As long as you’re not looking for high-brow literature, you’ll be fine reading Along for the Ride.
