Things have always to be in control because a step to an unknown direction will lose the balance that one keeps or kullaby least hopes to maintain. She’s not the girl standing in the corner hoping that the boy will notice her. I still liked this book, but the main reason I loved some of the other Sarah Dessen books was that I found them really relatable.

Jul 12, Carleigh rated it it was amazing. Not only is he a violation of her “no musicians” rule, he’s also intent on sticking around.

This Lullaby

May 12, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just like that, I could see her. She’s one of the biggest names in YA with a massive, devoted following. Her pessimistic view of love keeps her from experiencing the wonders of it. Remy realizes that she truly does love Dexter, and they get back together. This book had a decent amount of faults. Who can really blame her when her own father left her with nothing except a song and with all the marriages and re-marriages she has personally planned and arranged for her mom?

I did not like Dexter, I couldn’t see how he managed to be in a band with the way he acted and how he couldn’t seem to keep track of important things like the electricity bill.


Detailed Review Summary of This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Believe me, I was not that girl, but there were other elements of her personality I related to, like when she says, “The only I can’t stand more than seeing something done wrong is seeing it done slowly. A lot of issues are brought up and not really explored. And who can forget about the cast and customers of Joie’s?

Plus, this books was SO predictable. To avoid herself the pain ddessen has seen her mother go through again and again she has always followed specific guidelines about dating, which -in general- have the purpose of her never getting too involved.

I just couldn’t really get lullayb it. Her mother kept marry men and then divorcing them, I mean, what was Remy supposed to think?

This lullaby is only a few words Lullabu simple run of chords Quiet here in this spare room But you can hear it, hear it Wherever you may go I will let you down But this lullaby plays on Dexter got sucked into this dessenn and honestly I don’t think he was treated properly even after she realized her mistakes. The dessej character Remy is very relatable to many teenage girls, and even to young women who remember being the way Remy is when they were in high school. The story was so believable and the characters were just as believable and inspiring.

What if their relationship means something more than just summer fling? As always, Dessen managed to wrap up the book in a way so that everything, characters, plot, etc.

I could NOT relate to Remy in the slightest.

Even with her novels which I didn’t particularly like or connected with, like this one, I still feel well and satisfied with her stories. Then she meets Dexter.


Could This Book Be Any More Perfect?: ‘This Lullaby’ by Sarah Dessen

And that’s the key. Remy’s family and friends are a very loveable group of characters and their development is flawless.

Apr 27, Isamlq rated it really liked it. Remy Starr is officially my favorite Dessen girl, hands down. It’s about being flexible, and open, and ultimately just – lullay. I really liked Dessen’s portrayal of family and friendship, but with all the dramatic exits and declarations and breakups, it felt more like a romance book.

Maybe you should write from that point desesn view, just for fessen change. AND she never apologized for insulting him, and of course he was too nice to ask. Dexter is so many things Remy could never put up with. But still I decided to read this book nonetheless, because I trust Sarah Dessen to write engaging and meaningful stories, whatever the themes are. I know that despite all the fear of getting hurt, despite everything that you’ve seen, heard and read, that you still want to experience the kind of love that would make you see the reason for all those love songs.
