The illustrations are very colorful and make the story even more interesting. I especially like all the creepy creatures that come out.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

About: This tells the story about a girl whose brother is the outgoing sibling in the family that everyone likes. When he gets convicted for a crime he committed, her parents are absolutely devastated. With him out of the picture she struggles to find her place in her family as well as accept herself as she is.
Why I Recommend: I love Sarah Dessen and all of her novels. This was a great story that proves that being yourself is the best thing to do. The Chathams were great because each of them helps Sydney feel accepted.
