When I think of Sarah Dessen, I think of summer. (Even though she does have, I think?, three or four books also set during the school year—Lock and Key, Someone Like You, Saint Anything and What Happened to Goodbye). Her new book, The Rest of the Story, doesn’t disappoint. It is all about summer. It was amazing, truly Dessen-esque, but it hasn’t made its way up to my top 5 of her books.
Here is the summary:
Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten.
These Witches Don’t Burn is a spellbinding novel to a new series by Isabel Stirling.
It features everything from (gay) witches, first loves and heartbreaks, trying to get over said first love whilst searching for the Blood Witch in town and trying to solve a mystery to meeting a cute ballerina at a party and trying to flirt and hopefully get a date with her.
