ALONG FOR THE RIDE, by Sarah Dessen


Auden never had much of a childhood (her college professor parents even named her after a dead poet!).  So when she decides to spend the summer with her dad, stepmother, and new half sister, Auden doesn’t expect to do much beyond pre-reading her college textbooks.   But the new baby has other ideas – her crying in the night keeps Auden awake, and soon she’s hooking up with fellow non-sleeper Eli, who has a dark secret in his past.  He gets her out of her shell and into the childhood she never had … but will she ever find out what keeps him awake?

Sarah Dessen is one of the most popular authors writing for high-school girls.  Check out one of her books and find out why!
