Currently reading: Saint Anything | Books + reading post
I finished reading Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen a couple weeks back. It was about a teenage girl, Sydney, whose brother is in prison. She struggles with feeling invisible while her parents seem to focus more on her brother's situation than her life. She ends up transferring schools and meeting several new friends who change her perspective and ultimately help her to find out who she is.
I really liked how this book was based on realistic situations and emotions. The book didn't have that dramatic, sometimes unrealistic climax that many books have, yet it showed a glimpse of believable family relationships, personal growth, and true friendship. The book had many moments that were very relatable and the simple story connected with my so effortlessly.
