I just can’t finish it because it’s so awful and boring to deidcation. I wish I could say I liked this one as well as the other books by these authors. The descriptions the main character’s best-friend relationship and her relationship with her mclajghlin were as sweet as the love story itself.

Their stories were more interesting than Kate’s, who despite having a good life, a job she enjoys, etc etc, is stuck in a rut over a boy. Far from what I expected and her last decision was the dsdication outstanding thing ever happened between the reader and the protagonist. I had no idea why I had bought this book in the first place because the story plot is just so stupid.

This is not their best, but I did enjoy it. Dedication is a poignant, humorous tale about modern celebrity obsession and coming of age during the divorce boom. But I feel as though these authors took turns writing the story.


I dedkcation reading this I saw the book in the bookstore I’m so sorry to say this because I have never given any book a eemma star. It’s easy to finish the book because you want from it the same thing main character Katie ‘I go by Kate now’ wants from her ex – closure. Apr 10, Cristen rated it did not like it. And now you have the chance to confront him? He treated her horribly, whatever his reasons.


Despite advanced degrees, great job, and good friends, Kate is stupid, Jake is worse and there is NO redeeming value to this book!

Andit’s been likehow long was that? This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Apr 22, Debby added it Shelves: How can I convey to you the poor writing or editing?

When I turned the final page, I was satisfied a with the ending, b that I finally finished it. Everyone have different tastes. Be the first to discover new talent! A teenager might fall for it. I actually giggled when recalling the one-hit-wonder songs, stirrup pants, and blue mascara how I rocked blue m Dedication is a sweet book about young love.

I really enjoyed the 80’s and 90’s references throughout the book as well since I was also in school at that time. But after getting the call in the dead of night and jumping on a plane, can she turn back now?

I really liked the premise of the story and the back and forth storytelling between the present and past. Chapters switch back and forth between the present and the pivotal middle and high school years where Kate then Katie and Jake did the first-love thing: I’m not exactly sure what to say about this one.

Through devication been 13 years, Kate still has a primal need to confront not only the boy who abandoned her before the senior prom, but the musical pirate who used her personal life as fodder for his most celebrated songs and cheated his high school bandmates out of deserved recognition and royalties.


But Jake has returned to their hometown for an MTV special. Jake is an ass It is a witty yet poignant story of first love, of heartbreak, of growing up and moving on. I actually giggled when recalling mclahghlin one-hit-wonder songs, stirrup pants, and blue mascara how I rocked blue mascara!

Even at the age where true youth is in the rear dedicatiion mirror—or perhaps especially because I’m at that age—I really enjoyed it. To view it, click here.

Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus

Jake Sharpe is one of the biggest recording stars on the planet, and every song he’s famous for is about Kate. I never thought I could actually hate a book. The end was probably the best part, because Kate finally krus a back-bone and dumped his ass. Katie is in love with him which I get in high schoolbut then there is 10 years where she doesn’t see him, but Wow, did I ever hate this book.

Please respect Everyone’s opinions. Preview — Dedication by Emma McLaughlin. I understand holding a grudge and all but good lord! Okay, sure, that’s gotta be tough, but something like ten years had passed between the break-up and when the novel was set.

Ah, well, it can’t all be Kushiel. Return to Book Page. See what I mean about wanting to hit her and knock some sense into her?
