    "All of the Sarah Dessen novels are similarly average. Someone Like You is probably superior. She pumps out a lot of books rather than focusing on quality."

    "Another excellent book in the series. My only gripe is that it ended with me wanting more. If you're a fan of her other work and the series this definitely won't disappoint. The story keeps you intrigued and turning the pages late into the night. "
