Along For the Ride is definitely my favorite Sarah Dessen book...

I have never felt more emotion in a book, I was sometimes actually laughing out loud, to being frustrated with the characters.What really broke my heart is what they decided to name the bike shop.I was literally in tears!

This book teaches us to do go out there and try things we are not used to.And if we don't get it right the first time there is always a second chance and so on.And that we shouldn't miss out on opportunities even though they don't seem like that big of a deal.

I relate to this character more than I have to any other character, because I have missed out on a lot of adventures myself. From not going to parties or having boyfriends, but what I loved about this character is she couldn't ride and bike and I'm ashamed to admitted it, but I don't know how either!After one scratch on the knee I was done...But maybe I'll give another try, because it's never too late.

    Waste of my time!!!!!

    This novel is quite simply the worst book I have ever read! No joke. I was so dissapointed. Usually I enjoy Dessen's work since her stories are quite realistic and relatable, but this.. this was horrible. First, the price is ridiculous and is in no way worth it. The plot is predictable, and the characters are boring and static... URGHH!!

    its ok

    This book is a slow read. Its kind of boring and not very interesting. In the book it's like the same routine and the same thing happens over and over again. It's not entirly bad but it's deffinitaly not the best book i've ever read.
