The Truth About Forever

Title: The Truth About Forever
Author: Sarah Dessen
Publisher: Speak
Date published: 2004
Type of book: Young Adult 
Pages: 374

Macy's summer stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development. But Macy's plans don't anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or ... Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn't fit Macy's life at all--so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So ... happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before her eyes the year before? Sarah Dessen delivers a page-turning novel that carries readers on a roller coaster of denial, grief, comfort, and love as we watch a broken but resilient girl pick up the pieces of her life and fit them back together.

Review: I love the book….I love all the characters in the book ..Wes is probably my favorite. All of Dessen’s lead guy characters are AMAZING…
Dessen does a great job at bringing Macy's new friends to life: accident-prone, pregnant caterer Delia bickering brothers Wes and Bert, lively Kristy and her sister Monica "Monotone".
When I finished this book I felt: I love this book… and every time I read it I love it more. And I love the idea of a relationship like Macy and Wes’s…

I had high expectations what I read this book and I wasn’t disappointed.Sarah Dessen pulled off a worn plot with grace and an unexpected twist. The characters were easy to relate to. There were definitely moments of awe and other moments I was cheering Macy on. The meaning is great and it had me thinking about what forever really is. I’d definitely recommend The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen to anyone who enjoys books with three dimensional characters, a touch of romance, and a great plot.

What Kind of Book Are You?

So...I was visiting someone's blog...and i saw this post where you had to take a quiz to see which type of book you were...

This is my results. I think there's definitely some truth to it; I've been told before ! :) What type of book are you?

You Are Realistic Fiction

You are an outgoing person and very interested in others. You have many relationships that are important to you.
You are always willing to lend an ear to a friend with a problem. And you're even pretty good at giving advice!

Some may accuse you of loving drama, but you just seem to find yourself in the middle of it.
You are a true people person. You find the lives of others to be fascinating. You're up for hearing anyone's life story.

This is all so true.....even the drama part... :D :D :D

Win Breathless!

To win a copy of all five Breathless Reads books--THE ETERNAL ONES, NIGHTSHADE, THE REPLACEMENT, MATCHED, and ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, just enter the form below! I'm sorry, but it's US only.

  • THE ETERNAL ONES by Kiersten Miller is a fast-paced, adventurious love story that involves reincarnation, secret societies, and fire.
  • THE REPLACEMENT by Brenna Yovanoff is a hauntingly beautiful book that scares the pants off me.
  • NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer is not about werewolves--it's about true wolves that can shapeshift into people written by a brilliant scholar who incorporate history into the tale.
  • MATCHED by Allie Condie shows us that love can break through any barrier, and the most important thing is to not go gently...
  • ACROSS THE UNIVERSE is the book that I wrote and I would really like it if you liked it. Also I think you're pretty and want to be friends with you.
