This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Title: This Lullaby
Author: Sarah Dessen
Series? none
Aquired From: School Library
Summary: Remy has 'the speech' down pat. You know, the speech you give the boyfriend when it's getting too serious. She's done it enough times and her mom is on husband number five. So why is it that she can't give Dexter, the tacky and quirky musician, the speech she knows by heart? He's messy and disorganized, and let's not even start with the name. Not to mention that he's a musician, just like her dad, a man that Remy never knew because he left before she was born. Could it be that the rules that Remy has religiously followed for all of her life don't apply to her any more?
Cover Rating: 5/5
Comments on the Cover: Cute cute cute cute cover. It works so well. Remy has a firm grip on her heart and controls it, like a piece of paper.
Character Comments: One word: Dexter is the best Sarah Dessen male. This was the second time I've read this book, but I think it only made me love Dexter even more. Remy was good too, a little too pessimistic at times, but all in all a good character.
Favorite Character: Dexter
Character Rating: 5/5
Plot line rating: 4/5
Plot Line Comments: It's Sarah Dessen. It's cliche. But I love it anyway.
Likeliness to reread it? 5/5
Overall rating: 4.75/5
Books like this that I have reviewed: Along for the Ride, The Lonely Hearts Club
