Go out and get a hold of the book Dreamland by Sarah Dessen (LINK).
Make sure you have plenty of time (you won’t want to put it down for ANYTHING), and a huge box of tissues. I’ve been crying for twenty minutes.
HOLY COW no book has touched me like this, it’s simply amazing. I think this is her best book yet.
(Can’t sleep. As usual. And guess what? I have three meetings tomorrow and pile of paperwork on my desk. BAH!)
EDIT: 11/2/05 3:26 p.m.
I think I might have to buy all of her books. I sent her an email as soon as I’d finished reading it, and she wrote me back this morning. WOOHOO for awesome authors. Go visit her LJ: writergrl!!!
