I’ve read a couple of her books and I didn’t like them. I’d be willing to give her another shot but I’m not impressed so far. Her protagonists don’t appeal to me and the way that Dessen has them deal with conflict is either passive to the point of being dangerous or just useless. I think that authors of YA lit owe their readers role models not carpet samples.
All of the Little Life Lessons you learn from Dessen are ‘what not to do’s
