Waiting On Wednesday: What Happened to Goodbye

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

Summary from Amazon UK:

Mclean never lets herself get too attached . . . After the scandal of her mother’s affair, Mclean and her dad chose life on the road. But since losing her family and home, Mclean has lost herself too; she’s been Eliza, then Lizbet, then Beth - changing her name as often as she changes towns. Until now. Her new neighbour, Dave, is like no one she’s met before. Is it finally time to stop reinventing? Or will Mclean turn her back on the new life she loves, without even saying goodbye?

I don't think I have to ramble on about how excited I am about this book, as I'm sure the whole blogosphere is counting down the days with me. I'll just say that I love everything Sarah Dessen has written, and I think she's the best when it comes to contemporary YA. It seems far too long since Along for the Ride was published, even though it was only this time last year in the UK. That's just Dessen for you... she leaves you wanting more!
