[Crítica] Along for the Ride, de Sarah Dessen

Along for the RideAlong for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.

A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.

Já li outros livros da autora e, como sempre, Dessen cria histórias muito boas, com conteúdo, que provocam emoções fortes no leitor. Contudo, começo a notar um modelo de enredo com esta autora, pois a história parece ser sempre muito semelhante às outras. Há sempre uma família problemática, uma protagonista traumatizada, etc...

Concluindo, gostei, apesar de ser semelhante aos restantes livros da autora.
