When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?
Aside from Someone Like You, This Lullaby has to be one of my favourites. This book was filled with humor, meaning and of course, love. I wasn't expecting humor from this book. The other books I've read from Sarah Dessen was focusing more on teen angst. This indeed had teen angst, but it was different from the rest that I've read from her.
Remy was a challenging character. She was incredibly stubborn. She had already planned out her love life. Remy thinks she knows everything about love - the logic, the rules. At times I did get kind of frustrated with her, but soon those feelings faded away as soon as she learned her lesson.
I loved Dexter. He was funny, adventurous, and absolutely careless. Though I did feel like Dexter was irresponsible. The lyrics from the Potato Song was hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing. I think I was on the verge of crying.
This Lullaby is a light-hearted, fluffy book! I would also recommend you guys reading this for the summer!
