Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Sydney has always felt invisible. She’s used to her brother, Peyton, being the focus of attention. Now, after a drunk-driving accident that crippled a boy, handsome and charismatic Peyton is serving some serious jail time, and Sydney is on her own while her father retreats to his work and her mother obsesses over making Peyton’s jail time more like a summer camp than lock-up.
When Sydney meets the Chatham family after transferring to a new school, she experiences unquestioning acceptance for the first time, finally feeling like someone can see her.
Saint Anything is Sarah Dessen’s deepest and most psychologically probing novel yet, telling an engrossing story of a girl discovering friendship, love, and herself.
