What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen is a really inspirational book. Mclean Sweet is the main character of the story. Her parents divorced two years ago when her mom cheated on her dad. The betrayal left Mclean very angry and she was unsure of her true identity. She moved to different towns with her dad because of his job, and to escape the past, she reinvented herself at every school. She was never Mclean, she had been Beth, Lizbeth, and Eliza, but when she moved to Lakeview, she couldn’t escape her true identity - Mclean. This book is different from other Sarah Dessen books where a “hero” saves the main character. In What Happened to Goodbye, Mclean saved herself and fixed her relationship with her mom. Mclean lets her anger out and isn’t scared to rebel for the right of her own choice. It felt positive and I was cheering her on.
