The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
Hey guys! Today my first two posts are going to be about two of my favorite books! The first one I'm going to talk about is my absolute favorite book. The book title is where I got the name for my blog, so I thought it fit well for the first post! Hope you guys enjoy.
The description of this book is:
Sixteen-year-old Macy Queen is looking forward to a long, boring summer. Her boyfriend is going away. She's stuck with a dull-as-dishwater job at the library. And she'll spend all of her free time studying for the SATs or grieving silently with her mother over her father's recent unexpected death. But everything changes when Macy is corralled into helping out at one of her mother's open house events, and she meets the chaotic Wish Catering crew. Before long, Macy joins the Wish team. She loves everything about the work and the people. But the best thing about Wish is Wes—artistic, insightful, and understanding Wes—who gets Macy to look at life in a
whole new way, and really start living it.
I thought this book was amazing! Sarah Dessen's writing style is serious yet it portrays a teens mind perfectly. This book makes you really think about life and how you should be living it. And of course the love story part of it was great also! Every one who reads this book will fall in love with Wes almost immediately. You'll be rooting for Wes and Macy from the moment the meet. I loved some of the quotes in this book! I'd have to say page 136 is my favorite. There is such good material on that page! Dessen's writing is flawless in this book and she knows how to make you laugh! I have to say besides Wes, Bert and Kristy are my favorite characters. They're very well developed and so easy to love. If you're looking for a great romance and a great life experience, this book is for you! Hope you guys enjoy :]
