The novels that inspired the major motion picture featuring Mandy Moore--Golden Globe nominated star of THIS IS US.


Just when you think you've got everything figured out for yourself, things get turned upside down. Families change. Lives end. New lives begin. And love sneaks up on you when you least expect it. The trick is finding that one person you can always count on, that one person who will throw out the rules and help you figure out how to deal with it all.

Here, from acclaimed author Sarah Dessen, are two books about girls who stick together and manage to get it right -- the two books that served as inspiration for the film How to Deal, starring Mandy Moore. Read them, and you'll see where Halley and Scarlett's story began.

Sarah Dessen is the author of thirteen novels, which include the New York Times bestsellers The Moon and More, What Happened to Goodbye, Along for the Ride, Lock and Key, Just Listen, The Truth About Forever, and This Lullaby. Her first two books, That Summer and Someone Like You, were made into the movie How to Deal.  Dessen’s books...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooked I love this book it was awsome. I was hooked on it for a while until i started to read That summer but i see how the movie was formed with the mixture of both. Even the movie is great! The book made me think a lot about life, love, family and friends. I really like Someone like you more than that summer though.however this book is a must buy!
