"When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?"
First I have to say Dexter is my #1 Dessen boy. If Dexter were real and not a fictional character (something I have wished for before) he would be my perfect man ::sigh:: Funny, sweet, musical and he loves dogs ::uber sigh:: Also I have to mention Dexter's band, Truth Squad. Their antics make up some of my most favorite moments.
I am a complete and hopeless romantic and This Lullaby definitely stirs this side of me. I have always had an unwavering belief that love is great and though I have learned some very tough lessons, the most important is that love is a risk and that you must never forget that the greater the risk the greater the loss but also the greater the reward. This is a risk that Remy was not willing to take, that is until Dexter came literally crashing into her life.
My favorite Dessen novel is about love, and that no matter how much you try to control it or how many rules you set up love will always find its way into your heart, sometimes in the most unexpected ways.
I have 2 Fav Quotes from this book (3 if you count "Hate Spinnerbait!"):
"It's been a shitty season for relationships,' I agreed. 'Enough to make you give up on love altogether.' 'Nah,' she said easily, not even considering this. 'You can never really do that." - Remy & Lissa
"You know, when it works, love is pretty amazing. It's not overrated. There's a reason for all those songs." - Dexter
