Summary
Based on two of Sara Dessen's bestselling novels, "How to Deal" is a new feature film from New Line Cinema starring Mandy Moore. This is a two-in-one edition with the complete text from both novels. "That Summer" and "Someone Like You," plus a movie tie in cover. Rule #1: There are no rules. Just when you think you've got everything figured out for yourself, things get turned upside down. Families change. Lives end. New lives begin. And love sneaks up on you when you least expect it. The trick is finding that one person you can always count on, that one person who will throw out the rules and help you figure out how to deal with it all. Here, from acclaimed author Sarah Dessen, are two books about girls who stick together and manage to get it right, the two books that served as inspiration for the film How to Deal, starring Mandy Moore. Read them, and you'll see where Halley and Scarlett's story began. For more on this hot new movie check out the official How to Deal website! Halley is a young high school student who is disillusioned with love after seeing the many dysfunctional relationships around her. Her parents are now divorced and her father has a new young girlfriend she doesn't care for too much. Her mother is now always alone; and her sister is so overwhelmed by her upcoming wedding that she barely exists in the house anymore. On top of that, the shallowness of all the girls and guys at their school convinces Halley that finding true love is impossible. A tragic accident, however, leads her to meeting Macon, and suddenly Halley finds that true love can occur under unusual circumstances. In Halley's junior year she faces the death of her best friend Scarlett's boyfriend, Scarlett's pregnancy, and Halley's own first relationship, and during the summer of her divorced father's remarriage and her sister's wedding, Haven lets go the myths of the past
