Saint Anything

Reviewed by:

Popular YA author Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth contemporary novel. Sydney’s charismatic brother Peyton has always been the star of the family, but when his increasingly restless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a prison sentence, she is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When she meets the Chathams, a warm chaotic family who own the neighborhood pizza parlor,¬†Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance in this emotional story with eloquent words flowing with sensitivity and understanding, allowing readers a sense of connection with situations that mimic reality.
