If you don't know who Sarah Dessen is and you frequently read YA then you might be living under a rock, but just in case I'll give you a brief description of who she is. Sarah Dessen is the author of nine YA novels including, The Truth about Forever, Someone Like You, and Just Listen (my personal favorite). While some may say that the plots in the last couple of books she has written are sort of the same, which they are, I won't argue, they contain some great writing, awesome characters, and interesting teen issues. Her upcoming novel is entitled Whatever Happened to goodbye and she recently posted an excerpt of it on her live journal, so I thought I'd post the link for it on here so people could enjoy.
