When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn’t mess around. After all, she’s learned all there is to know from her mother, who’s currently working on husband number five. But there’s something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy’s rules. He certainly doesn’t seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can’t seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy’s starting to understand what those love songs are all about?
This Lullaby was a very good book by Sarah Dessen. I loved the characters and how well Sarah wrote the book. This is the story of Remy, who breaks up her relationships whenever she feels in love with her boyfriend. After all, she has learned most of her ways from her mother, who is currently on her fifth marriage. But, when she meets Dexter, he's different from everybody else. She isn't able to break up with him, and my thoughts were that she truly loves him.
There are a few dramatic events in the book, which were great page-turners, and I thought that it is one of the best books by Sarah Dessen. This is a fabulous read, and I recommend it to all young adult readers, because you won't be disappointed by it. Go out and get This Lullaby!...right now!
