The Truth About Forever

The Truth About Forever is a favorite book of mine written by Sarah Dessen. I LOOOVE this book, so i'm going to talk to you about it! (Don't continue reading if you don't want me to spoil the book for you).

Okay, so this book centers around 17-year-old Macy Queen. Macy lives alone with her mother after the death of her father about a year ago, and her older sister, Caroline, heads off to college. Macy's mom owns a housing business and is very centered around her work. She keeps trying to drive Macy to perfection, wanting her to be the daughter she wants: good grades in school, focused on the SATs, getting into a good college, etc. Macy's boyfriend, Jason, leaves at the beginning of the summer to go off to "Brain Camp". One night Ms. Queen is hosting a party at her house and that's when Macy first meets the Wish Catering Crew: Delia (the pregnant woman at the time), Kristy, Monica, Bert....and Wes.

Soon Macy finds herself in a whole new word with these people: she starts staying out late, hanging out with them more often, and finds herself falling for Wes. Her mother finds out about her second life and to say the least, isn't very happy about it. Then Caroline comes down to visit and talks about how she's trying to renovate the old beach house their father had years ago.

OKAY...i'm not going to say anymore because I don't want to give the entire story away. The point is: it's an excellent book...one of my favorites! A complete "must read" so go check it out!
