A Definitive Ranking of Every Sarah Dessen Young-Adult Novel

Sometimes I like to pretend like I have a very mature and refined taste when it comes to literature. I mean even just calling it literature makes me sound mature, right? Don’t get me wrong, as I’ve gotten older my taste in books has changed and I definitely read some interesting novels. But sometimes what you really need is a good old fashion young-adult romance book. And when it comes to YA romance, Sarah Dessen is one of the all-time greats.

When I was in middle school, reading Sarah Dessen taught me all about high school love. Did it give me false expectations? Maybe! But who cares because the books are amazing. And despite definitely being out of her target demographic these days, that doesn’t stop me from reading and re-reading her books whenever I feel like it! She recently came out with her newest addition, Once and For All so in celebration of her newest hit, I took it upon myself to rank all of her books. If you’ve never read a Sarah Dessen book (I feel sorry for you), take this as the perfect introduction. And a way to discover which books are must-reads and which ones not so much (spoiler alert: no matter what, they're all must-reads).
