    Someone Like YouSomeone Like You by Sarah Dessen


    Halley and Scarlett have been best friends for years, sharing secrets, clothes, and crushes. People know Scarlett as the popular, flamboyant one; Halley’s just her quiet sidekick. Then, at the beginning of their junior year, the balance shifts. First, Scarlett’s boyfriend Michael is killed in a freak accident; soon afterward, she learns that she is carrying his baby. She needs Halley now. But even as Halley does her best, she’s dealing with her own pressures—resisting her controlling mother, and dealing with her first serious relationship. Sarah Dessen’s unique voice is funny, poignant, and true, with a warm Southern accent that makes Halley’s story instantly appealing to teenaged girls and adult readers alike. Sarah Dessen lives in Durham, North Carolina.

    Halley’s junior year of high school includes the death of her best friend Scarlett’s boyfriend, the discovery that Scarlett is pregnant, and Halley’s own first serious relationship.

    I had almost forgotten him altogether when I finally emerged, bruised and tired, with my new schedule in my hand, standing dazed outside the Guidance office as the bell ending second period rang and people suddenly began pouring out of classrooms and hallways.  I went to the Coke machine to find Scarlett.

    “Hey,” she called out to me over the crowd of people pushing forward with their quarters and dollar bills, mad for soda.  She waved two Cokes over her head, and I followed them until I found her against the far wall, the same one Michael Sherwood had his picture snapped up against for the slide show.

    What fun book are you going to tease me with week?  I have been in a bit of a slump and could use some help 🙂 I hope you will leave me a comment 🙂

  4. I’ve only read one of her novels so far, but I liked it. This one sounds like it’s sadder than her others. Here’s my teaser, from a vintage western romance: Her Prairie Knight
