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!
