My pick this week:

The Truth About Forever
Sarah Dessen
Released May 1st, 2004

Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away. She's stuck with a dull-as-dishwater job at the library. And she'll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father's recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother's open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic, insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in a whole new way, and really start living it.

I received this for my birthday back in February and haven't gotten into it yet. I haven't actually read any books by Sarah Dessen. I have heard she was amazing and all her books have fantastic reviews - which is why I had this one and a few others on my wishlist. I should really pick it up I actually need a good pick-me-up book and this one could do the trick.

What do you think of Sarah Dessen?
