Sarah Dessen's 2011 Release Announced - Cut and Run

Publishers Weekly's Rachel Deahl reports that Sarah Dessen's tenth title will be named 'Cut and Run'. Available for purchase in May 2011 (12 months of torturous waiting), the story revolves around
"...a high school senior who, after her parents’ divorce, has taken up the practice of assuming a new identity in each of the four towns she’s lived in."

Interestingly, this book deal summary also lists Dessen as having sold four million copies of the nine titles she's written that are available for purchase. That's pretty darned impressive (and well earned.)

I admit to finding the description a little confusing as I am not sure what to expect. I think, perhaps, that's the best position to be in. Coming to a book with no idea of what's going to happen. I do hope that there is a deviation from what people called the 'Dessen formula', the summary would imply that this might occur. Regardless, a new Dessen in the world is always a good thing!

Sounds goooooood. I've been dying to know if Dessen was writing another book. Good to know! Argh! 2011 is ages away.

So I guess that means she won't release anything in 2010 then?

So far away!! But at least I have her other novels to keep me busy. I've only read like 3 of the 9 already out.

Thanks so much for posting this! The summary sounds intriguing- I can't wait to read it!

I guess I don't care if her novels are a bit formulaic. I happen to love whatever formula she's using. Can't wait for her next title--Thanks!
