What Happened to Goodbye

Here is my BlogHer Book Club review of Sarah Dessen's novel What Happened to Goodbye about the travails of a teenager trying to survive her parents' divorce.
But in the real world, you couldn't really just split a family down the middle, mom on one side, dad the other, with the child divided equally between. It was like when you ripped a piece of paper into two: no matter how you tried, the seams never fit exactly right again. It was what you couldn't see, those tiniest of pieces, that were lost in the severing, and their absence kept everything from being complete.
