I had no illusions about love anymore. It came, it went, it left causalities or it didn't. People weren't meant to be together forever, regardless of what the songs say. p.48 e-bookI feel really bad. I liked This Lullaby, but I didn't love it. It was okay. It was good, not great; it was sweet, but not affecting. I think I'm too old for this book. I don't say that a lot about YA, but I think I would have loved this book when I was 16. It was a sweet book, very predictable. There was nothing surprising about it for me. I wish that it had expounded more on some of Remy's real issues like what happened to her at that party and the fact that her mother never really explained her father to her. I think it was missing a few key plotlines. For me, it was like listening to a teen conversation and wanting to say "No. No. This is how it works," but you can't because they have to find out for themselves. There was a distinct lack of adults in Remy's world to help her which is the source of her problems.
But like I said, I liked it, but I didn't love it. 16 years ago though, I would have thought it was brilliant.
