One of Chick Lit’s best authors is New York Award winner, Sarah Dessen. Dessen writes novels that bring readers into a fantasy world called “Sarah-Land” which involves boys, friends, family, school, and life as a teenager. Each of Dessen’s characters address relatable conflicts such as dealing with divorce, family deaths, anxiety, and relationships. She connects to teens in a way that makes them feel comfortable and supported. She elegantly includes details that give each setting and character so much depth, making it easy to visualize the entire novel. Dessen’s novels have a versatile length that can be read at many different speeds. Some may find her novels slow for leisure, while some may find them as quick reads that they can’t put down. Dessen appeals and caters to all different audiences through her use of various topics.┬áSome of her books include Lock and Key, Along for the Ride, The Truth About Forever and This Lullaby. Just like Chick Flicks, these books will tap into all of your emotions in the best way possible.
