Let's Go Ride a Bike!
Now, for the confession: I did not learn how to ride a bike until I was 21 years old. I was, gulp, scared. And that's what I have in common with Auden, the main character of Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. Okay, Auden was 18 when she learned how to ride a bike, and she wasn't scared, she had just been raised by very academic parents. So I guess the resemblance ends there.
I love all of Sarah Dessen's novels. They read effortlessly, but her characters learn and grow and change as the novel progresses. There's a little bit of romance, for your Valentine's fix. And when you're done reading, let's go ride a bike!
