The Truth About Forever
This is one of the books that got me into reading in my late teens.
I really couldn't have asked for a better starting point.
It started my love for Sarah Dessen. Major author crush.
It's why, 7 years later, I have a copy of all of her books. And why my love for contemporary romance never dies. (it's also why I have 2 overflowing bookshelves and one leaning tower of books on my night stand).
It's why I stay up late at night, caught in the pages of a story.
It's why, during college, I was more than likely reading than out drinking. (except those few times that my friends lured me out with the promise of iHop and dancing).
The Truth About Forever is a story of love, loss, family and finding out who you are in between all of that. And I owe a good part of my growing up and moving on to this book.
A great read and a good introduction to YA Contemporary
