Synopsis: It's been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents' divorce--or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live. A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she's been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

I loved this book. I had been dying to read this for a few months now and when I finally got it I decided it was definitely worth the wait. At the beginning of the book I was sorta like, "uh..." but then as I read on and Eli became a big part of the book I couldnt put it down. Eli was one of those characters were no matter how he acted you just couldnt help but love him. Is that sappy? I think it does sound sappy but its true! Before I read Along For The Ride I had never picked up a single Sarah Dessen book. Great way to get hooked on a author. Dont ya think? Granted I wouldnt really recomend that twilight fanatics read this book I still think that the average teenage girl who believes in love should go out and read it.

I've never been a fan of chick-lit, but I think I need to give Sarah Dessen a chance. I've heard a lot of good things about this one and the fact that it was your first Sarah Dessen book makes me a little more apt to read it. Thanks for the review!
