Goodreads: It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live. A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.
My Review: Let me start of by saying I am a big fan of Sarah Dessen’s books, she is just amazing author of sweet teen romance... whose books I will read just because their hers. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen, I really loved this story I felt like I could relate with the situation especially since when I read this novel I was in summer and about to become an official college freshman in like two weeks so just reading a book about a girl who just wanted some change from her usual routine from being the smart girl, the girl who avoided the parties and the social life.
