just a warning: i ordered this book thinking that it was a new book by sarah dessen. sadly, i got it today, and it is really just two of her other books, Someone Like You and That Summer, put into one book. The reason for the different title is because they have combined these two books into one movie called How to Deal, starring Mandy Moore. I have read both novels seperately, and they are great, especially someone like you, so if you haven't read them, this book would be a good thing for you to purchase.

How to Deal is a book with two novels by Sarah Dessen in them which were put together to make a movie. The stories are divided in this book instead of together like the movie. I'll review each story seperatly

Someone Like You was my favorite of the two novels, it talks about Halley and her crazy life. She used to be quiet and well behaved, but then her best friend Scarlett became pregnant and the father of the baby is killed. Halley helps Scarlett through her pregnancy while dating Macon, the mysterious and wild boy who was Michael(the baby's father)'s best friend. Soon Halley's world turns upside down with Macon's reckless actions, Scarlett's pregnancy and her problems with her mother This story is about true life and love, and how Halley deals with it. I found myself smiling through my tears in the end, and every time I re-read it, the book gets more and more compelling.

That Summer: Haven is an awkward fifteen year old, who finds her world turned upside-down this summer. What with her father having an affair, her moody sister getting married to a man like a saltine cracker and her mother's saddness and obsessive gardening, Haven feels lost in the shuffle. She is angry with her crazy family, her new "Bad Girl" best friend and her life in general. She keeps remembering how wonderful that summer was when her sister was dating Sumner Lee, the happy and perfect boy who seemed to pull her family together. But after they broke-up, it was then that Haven's world unraveled. It sound like it would be an awesome book, but the characters were not developed well and the ending seemed unfinished. The message in the story was a good one though, about how the first boy always hurts the most.

For those of you looking for a great read, How To Deal is the perfect book. You will be getting two of Sarah Dessen's novels in one: Someone Like You and That Summer. The Movie How To Deal was made based on these two books. Both are wonderful reads for adolescent girls going through the pains and joys of growing up. In Someone Like You, best friends Halley and Scarlette struggle through Scarlette's pregnancy and together strive through the loss of a close friend. This book shows the blessings of a best friend, and how important it is to have someone to care about. In That Summer, Haven struggles through the pains of family life and first loves. It teaches the importance of family sticking together, and how wonderful and painful first loves can be. Both books are excellent novels and guides that every teenage girl will be able to relate to.

A Kid's Review on December 7, 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I took this book out of the public library a month ago for a bit of light reading. I had heard through some people at school that Mandy Moore was doing a movie called How to Deal, so when I saw the book I had to pick it up! I thought that the first section was better than the second section, becuase it delt more with sad teen issues rather than just divorce issues. I no sooner finished reading the novel, and then I ran out to my local "Chapers" book store, and bought 3 copies- one for me, and the other ones for two of my friends! It is a good book and I would recomend it to anybody who likes sweet sentimental books that deal with teen issues!!!

This book is actually two different books that are put into one volume. The first book, Someone Like You, is AMAZING and I couldn't put it down. However, the second book, That Summer, was boring and I only read it when I was trying to get out of cleaning my room. If I were you, I wouldn't waste my money and I would just buy Someone Like You. I gave this book 4 star because Someone Like You is one of the best books I've ever read, but I don't like That Summer at all. Is anyone else confused on how they made a movie out of these books?

Although How to Deal contains two novels about two different characters, both stories share the same themes such as family, friends, and trying to find oneself during a time of uncertainty. The first story follows Halley as she tries to support her best friend during a time of need, and deal with the new excitement (and confusion) of a first love. Most teens can relate to Halley's struggle as she feels more and more distant from her family and her constant anxiety over friends and her boyfriend, Macon. The first story is fast paced and touching, a story of about strength and the unity of friendship. The next story follows Haven, as her father (divorced from her mother) marries the weathergirl, Lorna Queen who he works with and the planning of her sister, Ashely's wedding. Haven's mind drifts to a time of a better summer, when she was closer to her sister, when her parents were together, when one of Ashley's boyfriends, Sumner, had brought the best out of all of them and made them a family. Haven is torn between all the changes taking place in her family as she tries to find where she belongs. This story moves slower than the first with more emphasis on character developement instead of action or suspense as found in the first.
