This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

“Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.”

Most people did not like reading about Remy, the heroine in this book mostly because she’s so cynical about relationships that she’s actually keeping tables and graph to when a relationship is going to end. I mean you can’t blame her for losing faith in love since her mother have had that share of love and misadventures, married too many times and somehow she felt the need to protect herself from that kind of pain and save herself from unnecessary heartaches. What’s funny about reading her character is that she’s also relate-able. Sometimes girls can be a clean freak and likes everything to be in order but Remy just takes it up a notch. I completely understand where her obsessive-compulsive behavior is coming from and I hope you can see that as you read along. I really enjoyed reading about her plus the banters going on between her friends made me crack.

Dexter on the other hand is the complete opposite of her personality, happens to be bold, enjoys taking risk and just this happy-go-lucky guy. Him being in a band was not too appealing, and it’s funny because musicians should somewhat have that appeal but Dexter was so average but I had a few laughs about his straight-from-the-book cheesy lines he’s dropping when he was professing his love and admiration. His tenacity was so cute that even though I made so many eye rolls, he still managed to get through my heart.

I hope he does the same to you too! *wink*
