I'm not sure if this will get any replies but here's hoping. Anyway, does anyone like this author? She happens to be my favorite, and I was just curious about what others thought of her work. She's the best Young Adult writer out there, and her book "Someone Like You" is amazing! Please, tell me what you think of her novels!!

I've not heard of her... what are the titles of some of her other books? What kind of subjects does she usually write about?

These are all her books:
That Summer (Haven's sister is getting married to the wrong guy. Haven gets comfort from sister's old boyfriend. Have to say that this one's my least favorite)

Someone Like You (best friends deal with ALL kinds of problems: death,pregnancy,love)

Keeping The Moon (Colie lost a bunch of weight but still has self-esteem issues. Visits her aunt for the summer,becomes a waitress and befriends two other waitresses)

Dreamland (Caitlin falls into drugs and an abusive relationship with Rogerson.)

This Lullaby(Remy is skeptical of love, because of her mother's numerous marriages, until she meets musician Dexter)

Hope these spark an interest!!
