The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Penguin Group Inc., May 2004
Rating: 5/5 stars
Synopsis: A long, hot summer…
That’s what Macy has to look forward to while her boyfriend, Jason, is away at Brain Camp. Days will be spent at a boring job in the library, evenings will be filled with vocabulary drills for the SATs, and spare time will be passed with her mother, the two of them sharing a silent grief at the traumatic loss of Macy’s father.
But sometimes, unexpected things can happen—things such as the catering job at Wish, with its fun-loving, chaotic crew. Or her sister’s project of renovating the neglected beach house, awakening long-buried memories. Things such as meeting Wes, a boy with a past, a taste for Truth-telling, and an amazing artistic talent, the kind of boy who could turn any girl’s world upside down. As Macy ventures out of her shell, she begins to question her sheltered life.
Is it really always better to be safe than sorry?
Sarah Dessen books are amazing and romantic. I wasn’t surprised when the whole story was enjoyable. If you’re looking for another book by her, I suggest Saint Anything. I really liked this book because the romance was on point.
I want a job like Macy’s. She works for Wish Catering. It’s chaotic, but at the same time fun. Her job changed her to be more sociable instead of studying at her house. It’s summer!
Speaking of studying, the book reminded me to get started on my SAT studying. The earlier I start, the easier it’ll be for me. It broke my heart when my dad said he wants me to be reading one book a month and that my priorities will be studying for the SATs and my hardest classes.
