I'll be the first person to tell you that I usually don't read Sarah Dessen's cheesy love stories, but the only thing cheesy in this book is the pizza (Yum!). Saint Anything is much different than anything Dessen's written before. Sixteen year old Sydney is used to being invisible. Her whole life is changed when her popular, beloved Brother, Peyton, gets in a car accident while drunk driving and leaves a boy paralyzed from the waist down. Then Sydney meets the Chatham family. They're everything she's never had before: cacophony, acceptance, and love. In a universe where everything used to revolve around her older brother, Sydney finds a family who truly sees her for the very first time.
Saint Anything was an honest, emotional read that wasn't lacking whatsoever in depth. I would definitely recommend this book, and guys, don't shy away from it just because there is, yes, a little bit of romance. This book is an emotional rollercoaster of family, guilt, and acceptance that I hope you add to your reading repertoire (yeah, I did just google that word :).
