What Happened to Goodbye

Big surprise: I loved Sarah Dessen's new book, What Happened to Goodbye.

What Happened to Goodbye is the story of Mclean who lives with her divorced father. Her dad's job leads to them moving often and Mclean reinvents herself at each new place.

I didn't love Dave, the male main character, as much as I've enjoyed some of Dessen's previous ones, such as Eli from Along for the Ride and Nate from Lock and Key. I felt like this book focused a little bit more on Mclean and her struggles than on romance. Dave didn't stick out as an interesting character.

However, the book had some great other secondary characters: Opal, the gal from the restaurant, and Deb, Mclean's welcoming party. They added a lot to the story.

Overall, it's another great one from Sarah Dessen. It's not my favorite, but it's still really good. You can't go wrong with any of her books.
