The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen (Book Review)

The Truth About ForeverThe Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I intend to give a four-star just because I don’t like Macy’s mom BUT I love the story way too much thus I’m giving it a five! Hurray!

This is my second Sarah Dessen book and so far I like her work. It makes me feel good and nostalgic all together, transports me to my ‘teen’ years.

I have my fair share of jerk-wads who broke my heart (regardless IF they’re intellectual level is higher than mine or the other way around) so to me this hit close to home. Just like Macy who wants to put up the image as Miss Perfect to please her ever-controlling mom, her over achiever boyfriend Jason and his know-it-all friends, it can be really tough when the peaceful, quiet life that you once live in suddenly turn to chaos! What would a girl do?

The characters are all wonderful! Each of them has their own story of traumatizing events. Some cope up just fine, some ignores the emotional pain and moved on without really moving on. Confusing? Ask Macy’s mom, she’s an expert on those (read the book to relate!).

For Macy and Wes, I learned something from their story. NEVER JUDGE A PERSON BY HIS PAST. I couldn’t blame Macy’s mom (Deborah) to act protective of Macy since she’s always seen her as Ms. Goody Two-Shoes. I wouldn’t want her to be associated with anyone who got arrested. But I guess, you just have to put faith in your children, educate, and provide them with unlimited parental guidance. This is kind of tough for me since I don’t have children myself (yet).

I’d recommend this book to readers who like YA books, summer romance books, and anyone who wants to reminisce those overly hormonal days.
