[Stacking the Shelves] - #44

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your bookshelf, be it the physical one or your digital one!

     This week I have been busy. I started writing Transplant again, and while I would love to do more with the blog I just don't have the time like I used to. I want to finish that book and start on a second. I have the idea mapped out, need to figure out the two characters, more or less etch in the final details. I am going on vacation this weekend so I won't be around to answer any questions regarding books this week. I am looking forward to it and the vacation is a much needed time away. I'll be able to get some reading done and furthermore I may take some time off to finish the book I am on and start the second novel.

     This week's Mailbox Monday is different. I bought a few Sarah Dessen novels to finish out the collection and while I would love to talk about all of them, and why I picked them. However, to be honest I bought them because they are all by Sarah Dessen. I love her work and how she can create a world and a relationship out of simple ordinary character that nearly everyone can relate to. As well, there is a further depth to the characters. There is a personal level of growth, and how every character has a personal development or personal experience they all must go through for the story to complete or give a sense of completion.

     Ruby, where is your mother?
     Ruby knows that the game is up. For the past few months, she's been on her own in the yellow house, managing somehow, knowing that her mother will probably never return.

     That's how she comes to live with Cora, the sister she hasn't seen in ten years, and Cora's husband Jamie, whose down-to-earth demeanor makes it hard for Ruby to believe he founded the most popular networking Web site around. A luxurious house, fancy private school, a new wardrobe, the promise of college and a future; it's a dream come true. So why is Ruby such a reluctant Cinderella, wary and defensive? And why is Nate, the genial boy next door with some secrets of his own, unable to accept the help that Ruby is just learning to give?

     Best-selling author Sarah Dessen explores the heart of a gutsy, complex girl dealing with unforeseen circumstances and learning to trust again.

Title:  Just Listen

     Last year, Annabel was "the girl who has everything" — at least that's the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf's Department Store.

     This year, she's the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong.

     Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling. With Owen's help, maybe Annabel can face what happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.
