Sarah Dessen - That Summer
Haven feels tall and lost; at 15, she's 5 feet 11 and counting; it feels as if her body has betrayed her and made her a giant--unlike her sister, Ashley, who seems "to live a life just like Barbie's; popular and perfect, always with a handsome boyfriend and the cool crowd." Now Ashley is THE BRIDE. As the wedding hysteria mounts, Haven feels too huge for the pretty pink bridesmaid dress. She imagines herself as Frankenstein, spreading chaos and revenge in the mall where she works. Only Ashley's attractive first boyfriend seems to understand Haven. Why did Ashley ever break up with him? The resolution is too complete: in the end Haven accepts her body; she stands tall and beautiful and confident and wise. But readers won't mind. This first novel is written with such easy grace that you want to quote sentence after sentence. Haven's funny, desperate voice draws you right into every scene: from the rituals of the shopping mall to the rage of family quarrels and the sudden tenderness between sisters. Girls will recognize how it feels when your childhood friend is suddenly boy crazy, and you can't understand the language; how it hurts to break the "tether" with your mother and to be disappointed by a charming boy. It's hard to be the one left out of the wedding.
