Romance, humor, kindhearted characters, and a touch of painful reality make this another sure bet for Dessen fans. Kirkus Reviews
Dessen, the newest recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, offers up her thirteenth novel, and it’s everything readers have come to love about her work….no one else does summer love like Dessen. Booklist
Dessen’s expertise at creating a character faced with change is once again on display in this book that reminds readers that love is measured ‘not in minutes but in moments.’ VOYA
Is there anyone who can write about what matters most to teens as well as Dessen can?  I sincerely doubt it. Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling novelist of Leaving Time and My Sister’s Keeper 
Sarah Dessen is something of a rock star in young adult fiction. Her bestselling coming-of-age novels are warmly written explorations of teens in transition that are, by turns, questioning, humorous and hopeful. Los Angeles Times
“Author Sarah Dessen is top-notch at fast-moving teen dialogue, and narrator Karissa Vacker is wonderful at delivering it. Vacker captures the witty sarcasm of Louna…[and] nails the jaded attitude of an eighteen-year-old who’s been raised by a busy, problem-solving mother…The emotions that play out in this Dessen romance will captivate fans new and old. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

“Dessen’s expertise at creating a character faced with change is once again on display in this book that reminds readers that love is measured ‘not in minutes but in moments.’” VOYA
“Her storytelling has a breezy, Hollywood-style polish…The plot is buoyed by crackly dialogue and the comical series of over-the-top weddings the two help produce, which serve as foils to their own budding relationship…A satisfyingly escapist rom-com that knows what it needs to deliver.” New York Times Book Review
“Grab some tissues and prepare to toss some confetti because Dessen’s Once and For All is cause for celebration! Readers will follow Louna as she conquers the world of wedding planning alongside her detail-conscious mom, Natalie. Louna is a complex character who demonstrates the realities of coping with tragic loss while facing fears of falling in love again. Readers will cheer as Louna discovers her inner strength, breaks free from expectations, and surrenders to love’s true calling.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
