You can read the Goodreads summary here.

Every time she moves, which has been four times in the past two years, Mclean Sweet changes her name and persona.  But after moving so much, she doesn't know who she is anymore.  Still struggling with her parents divorce and trying to fit in in a new community, she finds herself wondering, who is the real Mclean?

What Happened to Goodbye is Sarah Dessen's latest novel.  I don't know what it is about Sarah Dessen's books!  They aren't exactly amazing and maybe a little bit cliched, but I absolutely love them!  Maybe it's because they're so realistic.  The dialogue is realistic, the characters are realistic, and the situations are realistic.  Her books just have that something that have me coming back for more, so much so that I couldn't just wait for my library to finally purchase a copy and I certainly wasn't going to wait through over one hundred people on PaperBackSwap and who knows how many years to get my hands on a copy.  So when Kroger had it for for 30% off, I said "To hell with it, I'm just going to buy it!"

I loved this novel and I kept waiting for Mclean and Dave to get together.  I was also hoping all along that something would finally become stable in Mclean's life and was truly happy for her when she found herself in the end.
