Sarah Dessen - Just ​Listen
Annabel ​Greene seemingly had everything: cool friends, close family, good grades, and a part-time modeling career in town. But it all came crashing down, and Annabel has spent the summer in shaky, self-imposed exile. She finds herself dreading the new school term and facing, well, everyone again. The last thing she wants to do is revisit old friendships while the losses are painful, the secrets behind the rifts are almost unbearable. Her solid family seems fragile, too. What happened to cause the stiff silences and palpable resentments between her two older sisters? Why is no one in her loving but determinedly cheerful family talking about her middle sister's eating disorder? Annabel's devastating secret is revealed in bits and snatches, as readers see her go to amazing lengths to avoid confrontation. Caught between wanting to protect her family and her own struggles to face a devastating experience, Annabel finds comfort in an unlikely friendship with the school's most notorious loner. Owen has his own issues with anger, but has learned to control it and helps her realize the dangers of holding in her emotions.

Because ​her aerobics-star mother is taking her famous weight-loss program to Europe, 15-year-old Colie leaves her home in Charlotte to spend the summer with her endearing but uncompromisingly unusual Aunt Mira in coastal Colby, NC. Colie has recently dropped 45 pounds, but unlike her positive-thinking mother, the teen has not succeeded in shedding her negative self-image. With this change of scene, she hopes to escape her role as social victim. Unfortunately, Mira attracts lots of negative gossip. Worse still is the reappearance of Colie's hometown nemesis who continues to spread slanderous rumors about her. Colie feels hopeless until she accepts a job in a restaurant, where two fellow waitresses, both past their high school angst, share their beauty, boy, and life-management secrets with her. Sincere, perfectionist Morgan and the more flamboyant Isabel are great characters and the workings of their friendship is smooth, insightful, and just fun to read. The nifty and not-so-nifty relationships between men and women are observed through the eyes of a teen just on the verge of exploring such things on her own level. The love interests are varied, from a deceitful professional athlete for Morgan to a sincere artist surviving as a short-order cook for Colie. Through it all, readers are shown that "ya-ya" type friendships are a balm to protect young women while they're kissing toads they thought were princes.

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.

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.

Eu ​sunt Annabel. Fata care are totul. Frumuseţe, încredere şi o viaţă socială de invidiat. M-am născut sub o stea norocoasă. Nu-i aşa? „Cea mai bună prietenă” mă împroaşcă cu noroi. Familia mea se destramă încetul cu încetul. Iar vara, ce nu pare să se mai sfârşească, este scăldată în tăcere chinuitoare, secrete şi singurătate. Am cunoscut însă un băiat care nu mă lasă să mă ascund în cochilia mea. Un tip obsedat de muzică. Hotărât să-mi deschidă urechile şi să mă înveţe să ascult. Hotărât să-mi dăruiască zâmbetul pe buze.

Dar viaţa lui Annabel nu e nici pe departe perfectă. Prietenia ei cu Sophie a avut parte de un sfârşit amar, iar tulburarea alimentară de care suferă sora ei mai mare atârnă ca o povară cumplită pe umerii întregii familii. Izolată şi ostracizată la şcoală şi acasă, Annabel se refugiază într-o resemnare tăcută. Acesta este momentul în care în cale i se iveşte Owen – un băiat hotărât să spună întotdeauna adevărul. Şi cu ajutorul său, Annabel învaţă să-şi asculte propriul glas lăuntric şi să-şi pună cu mult curaj sufletul pe tavă.

Con la ayuda de Owen, quizá Annabel encuentre el valor de afrontar lo que de verdad ocurrió la noche en que Sophie y ella dejaron de ser amigas.

Sarah Dessen - This ​Lullaby
"I ​had no illusions about love... It came, it went, it left casualties or it didn't. People weren't meant to be together forever, regardless of what the songs say." Remy doesn't believe in love. And why should she? Her romance novelist mother is working on her fifth marriage, and her father, a '70s hippie singer, left her with only a one-hit wonder song to remember him by. Every time Remy hears "This Lullaby," it feels like "a bruise that never quite healed right." "Wherever you may go / I will let you down / But this lullaby plays on..." Never without a boyfriend, Remy is a compulsive dater, but before a guy can go all "Ken" on her (as in "ultra boyfriend behavior") she cuts him off, without ever getting close or getting hurt. That's why she's stunned when klutzy, quirky, alterna-band boy Dexter inserts himself into her life and refuses to leave. Remy's been accepted to Stanford, and she plans on having her usual summer fling before tying up the loose ends of her pre-college life and heading for the coast. Except Dexter's not following Remy's tried-and-true rules of break-up protocol. And for the first time, Remy's questioning whether or not she wants him to.

Sarah Dessen - Along ​for the Ride
Dessen ​has built a well-deserved reputation for delicately depicting teen girls in turmoil. Her latest title showcases a socially awkward young woman who seeks solace in the comforting rigidity of academic success. Auden is about to start college in the fall, and decides to escape her control-freak professor mom to spend the summer with her novelist father, his new young wife, and their brand-new baby daughter, Thisbe. Over the course of the summer, Auden tackles many new projects: learning to ride a bike, making real connections with peers, facing the emotional fallout of her parents’ divorce, distancing herself from her mother, and falling in love with Eli, a fellow insomniac bicyclist recovering from his own traumas. The cover may mislead readers, as despite the body language of the girl in pink and the hunky blue-jeaned boy balanced on a bike, this is no slight romance: there’s real substance here.

Mások szemében Scarlett a népszerű, feltűnő lány, Halley csak a csendes barátnő, ám ő nem bánja: ketten tökéletesen kiegészítik egymást. A gimnázium harmadik évének elején azonban megbillen az egyensúly. Először Scarlett barátja, Michael – az évfolyam legendája, akivel boldogan randizna az iskolában az összes lány – meghal egy motorbalesetben. Aztán Scarlett hamarosan megtudja, hogy Michael gyermekét hordja a szíve alatt. Életében először Scarlettnek van igazán szüksége Halleyre. Ám bármennyire igyekszik is Halley, meg kell küzdenie a saját problémáival is – próbál eltávolodni parancsolgató anyjától, miközben élete első komoly kapcsolatát éli meg. Lehet, hogy Halley és Scarlett barátsága megroppan a súly alatt, de soha nem törik meg… mert az igazi barátságban az ígéret örökre szól. Sarah Dessen stílusa egyedi, derűs, szívbemarkoló és hiteles. Mindenki, akinek volt valaha legjobb barátja – vagy első szerelme – érteni fogja sorait. „ Scarlett? – szólítottam a sötétben. Amikor felém fordult, láttam, hogy arcát könnyek áztatják. Egy percig nem is tudtam, mit tegyek. Újra eszembe jutott a tükre mellé tűzött fénykép, róla és Michaelről. Alig pár hete készült, a víz ragyogott, szikrázott mögöttük a napfényben. Eszembe jutott az is, mit tett ő, amikor én fakadtam sírva vagy milliószor, valahányszor a szívemen vagy büszkeségemen a legapróbb sebet ejtették. Odahajoltam hozzá, átkaroltam, és szorosan öleltem legjobb barátnőmet, megannyi szívességet törlesztve egyszerre…” Sarah Dessen férjével, kislányával és két elkényeztetett kutyájukkal él vidéki otthonukban.
