Sarah Dessen has been a YA icon for years. Her writing has touched the heart of millions of young adults for as long as I can remember.
Growing up, her stories were all I could read, so I’m especially happy to hear that she is releasing a new book next summer! US News reports that Dessen is working with HarperCollins to release her newest story, which is about “a girl reconnecting with family members she hasn’t seen in years” Described as a “big-hearted, sweeping” story, everyone will be dying to read it.

Having received the American Library Association’s Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in 2017, Dessen’s books continue to impact adolescent girls in more ways than one. With her bestsellers, Along for the Ride, Someone Like You, Dreamland and too many others to name, her books are modern classic due to her wonderful portrayal of young love.
