The Truth About Forever (Paperback)
This is a must read Sarah Dessen book. In a summer that was supposed to be filled with SAT studying and a library job, Macy instead finds herself working at a catering crew, meeting an interesting boy named Wes, and dealing with the tragic death of her father. I love this book because it’s funny, and romantic, yet hopeful and complex. I have so many favorite “quotes” from this book because I love the message Macy (and the readers) learn along the way. I highly recommend one of my favorite Sarah Dessen books!— Elise
From the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author of Once and for All
Expect the unexpected.
Macy’s got her whole summer carefully planned.
But her plans didn’t include a job at Wish Catering. And they certainly didn’t include Wes.
But Macy soon discovers that the things you expect least are sometimes the things you need most.
“Dessen gracefully balances comedy with tragedy and introduces a complex heroine worth getting to know.” —Publishers Weekly
