Once and For All

Reviewed by:

Contemporary fiction writer Sarah Dessen’s thirteenth novel takes a foray into the world of wedding planning, narrated by Louna, a teen who is cynical about love and happily-ever-after endings. Between the detailed present day chapters of Louna working for the summer in her mother’s wedding business, dealing with the stress and frequent crises, there are flashbacks of her relationship with her first love, Ethan, which ended tragically. When Ambrose, a handsome rich playboy, joins the business, Louna finds him annoying and superficial, and tries to avoid his advances. A relationship between them evolves slowly but realistically. Readers will find it inspiring to witness the characters embrace new outlooks on life and love in this insightful story.
