Musings of a Bibliomaniac

Goodreads immigrant. Another victim of corporate tyranny. I blog at Musings of a Bibliomaniac along with my co-blogger Scarlet.

Someone Like You - Sarah Dessen Not one of Sarah Dessen's best but a bittwersweet coming of age tale of two teenage girls as they encounter the harsh truths of reality for the first time and learn a valuable lesson or two about men. What I have always liked about Sarah Dessen is that none of her characters are cliched or fake. They seem all so real with their fair share of shortcomings and strengths.....the characters in this book are no different. Scarlet and Halley's friendship is the backbone of the story and even though many might disagree with me I would say this book had not-so-subtle feminist undertones.
