What is Sharon reading?

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Auden is an insomniac overachiever who excels in everything except her social life.  The responsible, focused daughter of divorced writer/professors, Auden is looking for a change.  For eight weeks she moves to the beach with her father, stepmother and infant half-sister, Thisbe.  Over the course of that summer she makes friends, meets an amazing boy, and begins to discover who she really is.

Reading a Sarah Dessen novel is one way I officially kick off my summer.  Sitting on the balcony in my outdoor rocker with an iced tea and one of her books is my idea of a perfect summer afternoon.

Along for the Ride includes all of the elements I enjoy in a Sarah Dessen novel — a summer setting, personal growth, love, friendships, and family dynamics. 

Read this wonderful book and follow it up with an Impromptu Hot Dog Party for you and your friends.

Happy Reading!
