“Fab and Funny”
I think that this book was really good, it had short funny parts that really got you laughing. It's the first book of Sarah Dessen's i have read and will most proberly read others written by her.
“Really great read”
I really enjoyed reading Last Chance as it was really clever and funny but also sensitive in certain parts. Also i like her books as they're set in America.
