Walking the Moon by Sarah Dessen



Colie expects the worst when she's sent to spend the summer with her eccentric aunt Mira while her mother, queen of the television infomercial, tours Europe. Always an outcast -- first for being fat and then for being "easy" -- Colie has no friends at home and doesn't expect to find any in Colby, North Carolina. But then she lands a job at the Last Chance Cafe and meets fellow waitresses Morgan and Isabel, best friends with a loving yet volatile relationship. Wacky yet wise, Morgan and Isabel help Colie see herself in a new way and realize the potential that has been there all along.


My Thoughts:


First let me say that I'm SO sorry! I haven't been around much at all! Its just with all my homework its really hard to check my blog. Sorry Guys! Ok so I started reading this book last night and I finished it :) I just LOVE Sarah Dessen. My favorite from her is The Truth about Forever. And Keeping the Moon is like my second favorite :) I haven't read all her books but all the ones I have are great!


Keeping the Moon was really good. Colie had so much anger in her it was crazy! Lots of people would say nasty things about her and she just let them. She was scared. When she went to Colby she wasn't very nice to Norman. She was not used to having someone be nice to her. Isabel was really funny. She couldn't help but criticize people especially Colie. Megan was so used to all the guys going to Isabel that she couldn't believe she found someone for her. She fell in love but was WAY to hung up on him! All these girls were completley different yet became good friends. Mira is Colie's aunt and she didn't care what people thought of her. She was a very happy women. Colie thought she was going to have the worst summer ever when she really had the best.

So much stuff happens in this book and it wasn't so predictable for me. I knew there will be a love interest for Colie but only because its a Sarah Dessen book :D Im rating this book a...

4.5
Why?
Because It was fun to read :)
I could relate to Colie
and it was well written
