If You Like Sarah Dessen…


One of the requests I get the most in the library is for books like those Sarah Dessen writes. This translates to books that are about the real struggles of teen girls with a side of romance. This means books with complicated characters and a strong sense of place.

Here are my go-to recommendations for readers who crave more of these kind of books, with a mix of backlist and newer releases.
