A New Book Review

Hey Guys! A new book review. The book is by Sarah Dessen. Yes you will notice that the cover is the old version, but that is the version I have. Hope you enjoy!

Title: Someone Like You
Author: Sarah Dessen
Publisher: Speak a Penguin Group
Date of publication: First published in May 1, 1998; but republished May 11, 2004.
Pages: 281
Synopsis: Life is an ugly, awful place not to have a best friend Halley and Scarlett have been best friends ever since they met. Halley has always been the quiet one, Scarlett braver and more outgoing. Halley has always turned to Scarlett when things get rough, and Scarlett has always known just what to do. It's the perfect setup. But everything changes at the beginning of their junior year. Scarlett's boyfriend is killed in a motorcycle accident; then Scarlett finds out that she is carrying his baby. For the first time ever, Scarlett really needs Halley. Now Halley has to learn how to be strong for Scarlett. It won't be easy, but Halley knows that she can't let Scarlett down. Because a true friend is a promise you keep forever. 
How I rate it: 4 out of 5
My thoughts: I really enjoyed the book. It was a true Sarah Dessen Classic. There were some parts that I enjoyed more because it was my favorite parts in the movie How to Deal which is based on Sarah's first two books.
