I am a huge Sarah Dessen fan. However, I felt that her previous novel, Lock and Key, fell short of what she's capable of. I'm more than delighted to say that she has made up for that with Along for the Ride. It is very similar to all of her other novels, however as with all the others, it still has it's own unique story. I couldn't put it down and immediately wanted to read it again as soon as I had finished it.
