Every Sarah Dessen Novel, Ranked
4. Along for the Ride (2009)
Auden (these names!) has the classic case of a kid who had to grow up too fast. She’s now spending the summer with her dad and his new wife and baby for some quality bonding, but her dad is MIA basically 24/7. She meets some new friends and a new boy (of course) and her summer quickly changes.
Sarah comes through again with another classic. As per usual, I love the new friendships Auden forms, but I really love her and Eli’s relationship. The sweetest part is the “quest” they embark on, for Auden to experience a normal teenage life.
