Book Review – Saint Anything

Sarah Dessen (Penguin) ISBN: 9780141361734 

Sydney’s family is
falling apart after her brother goes to jail following his latest ‘accident’.
She moves schools and feels like a complete outcast at first, as if nothing has
changed. She is constantly ignored in her own home, following the disarray
surrounding her brother’s troubles. 

The Chatham family,
who are full of colour and chaos, then welcome her as one of their own. Sydney
attracts Mac Chatham, who is quiet and mysterious and has an incredible heart.
Can Sydney lead a normal life? Or do her brother’s mistakes from the past catch
up with her eventually? 

This was a fun and
light read, but it got slow and repetitive near the middle, which made it
slightly more difficult to focus. I liked the characters and the way the story
unfolded. I would recommend this book to someone who is looking for an
enjoyable and an easy story, but it was not something that I could remember
after a while.
