Her older brother has always been in the spotlight. His charisma and charm as a child to his drug-induced alcoholic downfall in high school has rendered Sydney nearly invisible in her brother's shadow. It's not until she makes the decision to change schools and falls in with a crowd of lovable characters centered by two siblings of the Chatham family that she feels seen and begins to stand up for herself and see that being invisible isn't really all it's cracked up to be. Sarah Dessen's talent for writing strong character relationships and connecting with teens in a way few writers can really shines through in Saint Anything.

Humor is probably the best way to deal with waking up five years after you've died. That's what Travis Coates does, in a brand new body, with the same old head, still sixteen when everyone he's every known and loved is five years older. Sadness of course plays in a bit too, but I'd be getting aHEAD of the story and giving too much away, and I can't do Whaley's storytelling justice anyways.
