RE: someone like you
Someone Like You has all the hallmarks of a great young adult novel – first loves, bad boys, strong female friendships and characters forced to deal with the consequences of their actions. It is the story of Halley, who discovers all of these during the course of a difficult year, alongside her best friend’s pregnancy. It was really interesting to get a teen pregnancy plot told from the perspective of the best friend, and is handled with sensitivity. A layered and insightful novel and Dessen does an excellent job (and the ending still managed to give me a case of the warm fuzzies).
