Saint Anything

By Sarah Dessen
SHARE

Saint Anything is a poignant, honest story about how we might suffer the misfortune of someone else’s bad choices, how people who love us can become family when we desperately need it, and how starting over might – miraculously – mean taking a solid leap forward.” —Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling novelist of Leaving Time and My Sister’s Keeper

About Saint Anything

A new blockbuster from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Dessen now available in paperback!

Sydney’s handsome, charismatic older brother, Peyton, has always dominated the family, demanding and receiving the lion’s share of their parents’ attention. And when Peyton’s involvement in a drunk driving episode sends him to jail, Sydney feels increasingly rootless and invisible, worried that her parents are unconcerned about the real victim: the boy Peyton hit and seriously injured. Meanwhile, Sydney becomes friends with the Chathams, a warm, close-knit, eccentric family, and their friendship helps her understand that she is not responsible for Peyton’s mistakes. Once again, the hugely popular Sarah Dessen tells an engrossing story of a girl discovering friendship, love, and herself.

“This summer I’m looking forward to reading Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen.”–John Green

“The name Sarah Dessen has become synonymous with Young Adult contemporary fiction.”–Entertainment Weekly
