Book: What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen.
Synopsis: Since her parents’ bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother’s new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out.

“It’s fine,” my dad said easily. To me he added, “Mclean! I didn’t even know you were here. How was the rest of the day?”
Opal turned, looking at me, confused, and I suddenly remembered I’d told her my name was Liz. I swallowed, then said, “Okay, I guess.”

I can empathize with the girl wanting to try on a new persona. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “ECHOES OF FAMILY”
I haven’t read much by this author, but this book sounds like it could be okay. Thanks for mentioning it. 🙂
I read lots of Sarah Dessen as a teenager but it’s been years! Thanks for sharing.
