Never get too serious. Never let him break your heart. And never, ever date a musician.
 
But then Remy meets Dexter, and the rules don’t seem to apply anymore.
 
Could it be that she’s starting to understand what all those love songs are about?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Adorable You will surely fall in love with this story. You will get wrapped up in Remy and Dexter, totally engulfed. I personally imagined myself in Remy's position and I was in love with the charcter, Dexter. If you are a sucker for a love story, don't waste time any time, go pick it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My All Time Favorite Book I read this book for the first time many years ago, and it is still my favorite. I have read it over and over again, and never get tired of it. Remy is a girl who plans out relationships and likes to be in control. When Dexter, who is not Remy's usual type of guy, comes along and Remy starts feeling things she has never felt before, she has to decide if rules and being control are always right or if sometimes you just have to let go and let life happen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from http://frosybookreviews.blogspot.com/2010/12/this-lullaby-book-review.html The story fallows Remy and her rules about romance which she doesn’t believe that exist. She thinks love only happens in fairy tales and will go all the way to prove it to Dexter. She doesn’t do relationships but somehow she can’t seem to dump Dexter. After a lot of events in her life and a very open mind conversation with her mother she realises that love is always there, you just need to find the right one for you. And you won’t find if you don’t try at all. It was an o.k. book. I thought this book would be pretty much a love story between Dexter and Remy....and well didn't seem like that to me. Everyone was telling what a great book this is and I was excited when I bought it but felt disappointed after reading it. I didn't like the characters....Remy was so selfish she just wanted to be only for herself.... and never thought about the others when it come to feelings she just cared for her own feelings.... Her friends on the other hand...I would like to see more about Jess' life... it's seems more complicated than Remy's.... Lissa is the typical teenage girl.... Dexter is the total opposite of Remy... He is funny... he lives for the present not just sitting around and watching others living their lives.... he lives his life to the fullness. I admire her mother though, even if she has been hurt so many times she still believes that all these things (love) were worth going for.... So, this book to me, it wasn’t the love story I expected... it was a well written book though talking about our lives and that we should live our lives at the fullness because we just have one life and it is better to live it ,even if we get hurt, rather than staying in the shadows... Because in the end we will be able to look back and say that we grabbed every opportunity it was given to us.... So yeah it was a good book but don't expect a big love story.... not like that... anyway I think it's worth reading it because of the message this book gives....and I will probably try another book of hers cause I really like the way she writes.(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, light reading This was my first Sarah Dessen book and I have to say I really enjoyed it! After all, it is summer and I wanted to read something very light and nice and this was exactly what I was looking for. I enjoyed the characters, but especially how they all worked together despite of their differences. Remy was a great leading female character and her girl friends were simply priceless, all in their own specific way. Loved that. I also really liked Remy's brother. Dexter was a nice character, very carefree, unlike Remy. I'm a little like Remy, I like to have everything under control no matter what it is and when I am not in control I feel insecure. The book was great, but the only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because the end, I felt, was very predictable. This can be attributed to the fact that I think like Remy, but it might just have been... well predictable. So, great book, I definitely recommand it if you're in the mood for a light reading for summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Teen Reading! For years I've heard rave reviews from girls about Sarah Dessen's novels, and have always known I'd pick one up eventually. That being said, I was still pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. Being more than a little past my teenage years, I still found that this novel was relatable, the characters were 3 dimensional, and felt pulled in emotionally to the story. I highly recommend this novel for Teens, it's a realistic story, without being overly sappy in dialogue or too filled with teenaged angst. It does have language, and sexual references though, so definitely not for Tweens. It's nice every now and then to be reminded of what it was like being a teen and trying to discover who you are. It was both a simple and complicated time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Lullaby is this chicks favourite This is the first book of hers that i read. It was like nothing I had read before. Great for going from young tween reading and even other teen books to something more emotional and real. I recommend this to be the first of hers that anyone reads. It was the most fantastic and emotional book I have read to date, and I have read many books. Its all about opening up and stopping yourself from having complete control over everything and just letting life be. Dexter was a whole new type of guy for me. His life theory of embracing the mess was both funny and relaxing. He makes us thinking about how many plan for tomorrow and end up losing today. Of course this book does have real emotional content and some sexual reference so don't hand it over to your 12 year old daughter. Its a great read for any girl over 14

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarah Dessen is a great author Sarah Dessen definitely knows how to write a book. This has become one of my favourite books to read over and over again. The main character Remy is someone easy to understand and sympathize with, though some times you may want to tell her that she's wrong, just as a friend might. I really love this book, and I'm sure you will too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Realistic Love Story I think the best thing about Dessen novels is the fact that she write about the reality of romance. Love has its ups... and its downs. I think too many authors focus on the ups without writing about realistic downs. In this novel, it was completely personal challenges that the main character had to face before she could open her heart to a real long term relationship. The best part of the story? It could have actually happened. It was completely realistic and hopeful for any young women with the same feelings towards love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from E X C E L L E N T ! This was the first Sarah Dessen book I read, and the book that got me so interested in Sarah Dessen. This was a fabulous book. It was a real page-turner. Most books, say, the 40-th page it gets interesting, but this one, by page 5 your readin' away. I highly recommend this book, its such a great teen book, mostly for girls. But what I noticed, is that, it's such a normal book. It could easily happen to any of us. You not beleiving in Love, Him thinking he was in love by first glance. It's so typical, but the way Sarah Dessen wrote it is so, so, so inspirational. Your crazy if you don't love this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hate Spinnerbait...Love this Book! You will absolutely fall in love with this book! Dexter is a very vibrant character. I really enjoyed his whole goofy, laid back attitude. Remy, whose mom has been married 4 times, does not believe in love or long-termed relationships. This all changes once she meets Dexter and her causes her to change her views. There was great back and forth of dialogue between Dexter and Remy. You can slowly see Remy falling for him. This story will make you believe in love at first sight. Fun summertime romance. Great Read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This Lullaby I love most Sarah Dessen books but this one was one of my favourites. Dexeter is funny, Remy thinks she's a horrible person (which she isn't) Remy's step dad is a jerk and her friends are so different. You can see Remy learning more about herself and moving on from things that have hurt her in the past. I like the interesting things that some of the characters say. I do have to admit that it was a little boring in one or two places but great overall. I would recomend this book to teens or pre teens although some adults might like it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this! This is the kind of Dessen that I love. I didn't enjoy the last book I've read of hers "That Summer" but I adored this book. It had the elements that I loved and made we wish we could get a movie out of this one. Remy is really a by-product of her Mother's instability and neediness along with a father who never is around and a string of 'stepfathers' that come and go with the seasons. This seems to often be a trend in Dessen's writing and I never find it gets boring nor repetitive. She always manages to twist it a bit to make it original. Remy's got some strong control issues and is definitely OCD. For her whole life she's worked at being able to escape her Mother and go to college far away. With her senior year over she's not got to over come one last summer before she heads to Stanford. When it comes to boys Remy has a system that ensures her heart will never get broken and that she won't take the sort of risks that her Mother do. She's learned that love doesn't last and that men specifically don't stay for the long haul. Until Dexter pushes his way into her life. I enjoy the real aspects that Dessen deals with. I like how her family's are never perfect and yet they always manage to show personal growth that always seems entirely possible. However, despite abandonment issues and various other heavy content she never drags the book down. Never does it seem hopeless or a really depressing read. There's that silver lining and even if it takes a while for the characters to hit that growth you can see it slowly sprouting. This was a really enjoyable read. Heart breaking to think that there are people out there that truly believe opening yourself up with inevitably cause pain and it was heart breaking to see Remy experience that first tingle of love but so scared of something that can be so wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Great book! It was different than some of her other books and it was funny! Dexter and Remy make the perfect couple in the novel and balance each other well. This is a definite must-read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've read it 50 times, I know I'll read it 50 more This was my first Sarah Desson book and while I’m still shy of two to have have read all of her books, this is still my favourite. It is very different from her other books and for that reason it is my favourite. Remy, the main character, is almost cynical and beautiful and slightly damaged and yet I completely related to her. Desson goes in a different direction than her other heroines. This time Desson presents a main character that’s not shy or recovering from a traumatic event, she’s not anti-social or the underdog. Remy is strong. Remy’s not imminently likable, she’s frustrating and you’re pulled into her story because you want her to open up and just breathe. Dexter, is the most amazing character I’ve ever read, I fell for him, he’s just living each moment to the fullest and he wants to show Remy that’s okay to let someone get close. Remy and Dexter’s chemistry is remarkable, every scene they have together makes you drink up the words because they’re clever and sexy and you fall for them. This is the perfect summer read, it takes place during the summer before college so it deals with changes and saying your goodbyes and just holding on one second longer. I recommend it to everyone. It about letting yourself fall in love and just wonderful that is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well... .....Its not my favorite Sarah Dessen novel but it was pretty good. I found myself drifting throughout the novel and loosing focus quite a bit. Im glad it wasn't my first Sarah Dessen novel because I may not have been so eager to read more of her books if it had been. I like how all her books are connected, some characters are even mentioned in numerous books. Overall she's is great author and I highly recommend any of the Sarah Dessen novels I have read. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing As a big fan of Sarah Dessen, I was expecting something as amazing as her other books, and was VERY disappointed. I found it very boring, it just dragged and dragged on and I couldn't relate to Remy at all. (I have to admit I loved Dexter though <3) I kept reading, telling myself it would get better, but it didn't and I was left disappointed with the ending and the book in general.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly inspirational♥ The first book I read was Dreamland by this author and ever since i have been totally obsessed with this author(Sarah Dessen). She just has an amazing talent that she can tap into other peoples lives. She can dig beneath us, and know how teenagers really feel. I was soo suprised , by reading this book and her others she practically let me know that i was who I was and i should appreciate it and I should be appreciated as a person. To let go of all the people i loved but who hurt me. To get over them and continue on in life. Knowing that theres always another person your gonna meet and live the rest of your life with. She is truly inspirational. Sometimes we just have to walk away.♥Even from the ones we love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not her best. I liked this book but I liked both Just Listen and Truth About Forever a lot better - but this one is still worth the money. Remy's mom is just about to get married for the fourth time, and that doesn't include the highly illegal union with Remy's dad, whom she's never met. So Remy is pretty cynical about love and breaks up with guys every 6 weeks or so - as soon as they start to get a little annoying or clingy. She was seriously the drunk girl who has a one night stand girl for a long time.Then Remy meets Dexter who breaks all her rules - he's a musician, he's chasing her, and not a normal guy, and she isn't sleeping with him right away. Will he change Remy's mind about love? Some of the content makes this for a bit older teens than some of Dessen's others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best books I've read "This Lullaby" is honestly one of the most insightful books I've read... and the best book I've ever read my whole life. I was originally going to buy "The Truth About Forever" (which is also written by Sarah Dessen", but Coles didn't have it so it was either This Lullaby or the Au Pairs (but the thing is I needed a novel for school.). Anyways, when I read this book, I eventually liked it right away and wouldn't want to put it down. Although I didn't like Remy's attitude towards dating and her standards (everybody has standards, but hers were different), but I loved how she forgot about them when she met Dexter. Dexter is probably my favourite character in the book, I like the games and challenges he plays with Remy with his friends and I thought that it was really funny how he introduced himself (sort of) to Remy in the beginning of the book. Sarah Dessen did a really good job writing "This Lullaby" and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an awesome book!! Omg, this book was really awesome. Like many of the people before me, the characters were very realistic and the emotions the characters felt struck home at times. It was extremely well written and I enjoyed it so much that I stayed up all night reading it, after I started it at nine thirty that night. I finished at twelve. But I just loved it so much. At times I wanted to kick Remy, and I was soo happy when in the end she ends up with Dexter, because I really hated her attitude. Just like someone else who reviewed said, it made me want to run out and find my 'Dexter' because he was such a loveable character. I love this book and would love to buy it. I've already recomended it to a couple of my friends, describing is as: very sweet and a very romantic story!! So two thumbs waaay up to Sarah Dessen, for writing such an enjoyable novel!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest book ever written This book really knows what it's like to be a teenager. From part-time jobs, to friends, to boyfriends and summer flings. It encompases it all, including the relationship between Remy (the main character) and Dexter, the boy living with his bandmates, moving from place to place, trying to land a record deal. Remy thinks that she can escape him, but Dexter never gives up, and neither does fate. This book plays with your heart, making you feel such hatred, annoyance, sympathy and love. It makes such a deep, emotional connection. I, myself, never cry, even at a death, but this story, so well written, had me blubbering in the middle of my pre-calculus class. No story has ever affected me so much, and I highly and fully doubt that another one ever will. Even my little sister, who never reads any books, took the time to read this one. I recommend this book to anyone looking in the teen section at this store, and even some of the adults. If you can read, then this is the book that you should be reading, no matter your age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a little bit of magic I actually own this book (didnt just borrow it from the library) and it is the best book ever. My own copy is so worn out from lending it to friends and they too all agree that it is amazing. By the end of the book I felt like going out in search of someone just like Dexter. This book is a MUST read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Throughout the course of the story, Dessen enables her readers to get to know, and like each of the main characters, making it possible to relate to each one. Remy undergoes the changes and growth each person hopes to achieve, learning more about the others around her, and more importantly herself. You will wish Remy and Dexter's story will never end.

I love Dexter, he sounds so awesome and I love Remy. She's so real and I feel like I could meet her in real life. If you haven't read this book, you need to. I repeat, NEED TO!

About the Book

Now in paperback--the "Publishers Weekly" Best Book of the Year from the acclaimed author of "Dreamland" and "That Summer." This captivating novel is about a tough-as-nails girl and the unexpectedly charming boy who's determined to soften her up.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER ONE The name of the song is "This Lullaby." At this point, I've probably heard it, oh, about a million times. Approximately. All my life I've been told about how my father wrote it the day I was born. He was on the road somewhere in Texas, already split from my mom. The story goes that he got word of my birth, sat down with his guitar, and just came up with it, right there in a room at a Motel 6. An hour of his time, just a few chords, two verses and a chorus. He'd been writing music all his life, but in the end it would be the only song he was known for. Even in death, my father was a one-hit wonder. Or two, I guess, if you count me. Now, the song was playing overhead as I sat in a plastic chair at the car dealership, in the first week of June. It was warm, everything was blooming, and summer was practically here. Which meant, of course, that it was time for my mother to get married again. This was her fourth time, fifth if you include my father. I chose not to. But they were, in her eyes, married—if being united in the middle of the desert by someone they'd met at a rest stop only moments before counts as married. It does to my mother. But then, she takes on husbands the way other people change their hair color: out of boredom, listlessness, or just feeling that this next one will fix everything, once and for all. Back when I was younger, when I asked about my dad and how they'd met, when I was actually still curious, she

Never get too serious. Never let him break your heart. And never, ever date a musician.

But then Remy meets Dexter, and the rules don&#8217;t seem to apply anymore.
&#160;
Could it be that she&#8217;s starting to understand what all those love songs are about?
&#160;
&#147;Remy and Dexter jump off the pages into the hearts of readers, who will wish for a romance like this of their own.&#8221; &#151;Booklist
