Tired of bills, traffic, telemarketers, and--my biggest pet peeve--those dad-blasted blister packs that require The Jaws of Life for opening and always end up sticking me under a fingernail? Well, forget about it all for a few hours and read True Blue Forever. You'll find yourself in a world of first loves and first kisses, surrounded by blue-eyed hunks, super-cool muscle cars, moonlit nights on Gulf Coast beaches, and so much 70's music and culture it'll have you sporting a 'fro and searching for that Heatwave 8-track so you can listen to "Always and Forever" while you read.

Whether you're in high school now or it's a distant memory, and regardless of whether you loved it or hated it, you'll love meeting Jeana, Mickey, Wade, and Billy Joe: four atypical teens who will each win your heart in their own way. They deal with plenty of teenage angst, just none of the banalities featured in so many books--like the dreaded zit on picture day and having two dates for the prom. These are teens who make mistakes and are subject to raging hormones like everyone else, but they're smart enough to look at the big picture and take responsibility for the choices they make. You'll laugh and cry with them, seethe and long to soothe them, and when you get to the end of the book, you'll want to go back and read it again so you can visit with them a little longer.

True Blue Forever is more than just a novel: It's an introduction for readers to four new lifelong friends.

True Blue Forever is the tale of Jeana and the three men who loved her. Billy Joe the fun loving prankster, Wade the man we each have probably loved for looking so perfect, and Mickey the one beautiful inside and out. A beautifully woven story that will capture your heart, mind, and soul and even have you laughing out loud! The plot is thick with true to life characters that I found myself cheering for. I laughed at times, cried at others, and ultimately cheered throughout the entire book, it will effect you that deeply! The characters are truly unforgettable and written with such intensity that you will feel like youve meet them and in fact they will feel like your very best friends. True Blue Forever is a must read for anyone who carries love in their heart. This novel is a winner from beginning to end and wont let you down with its happy yet surprisingly original ending that will leave you with a warm feeling in your heart and a smile that will make you unable to put it down! Joyce Scarbrough is sure to go far with her endlessly romantic story of true love one that is True Blue Forever.

I really enjoyed this book about highschool romance and conflict. The characters captured my heart, and the idea of 2 supposedly so different people falling in love seems to be a recurring situation I see in my and my friends' lives. I started reading it thinking it would be like many other books I've read. I read a few pages, I enjoy it, I put it down to do other things. BUT, this book captured my attention and I couldn't put it down. I literally had to force myself to put it aside to get anything done. I reccomend it to anyone who "loves" a good romance!

A friend of mine was telling me about this book they were reading and they mentioned that one of the characters drove a Boss 429. Well since they only made about 1200 of these Mustangs, I immediately became skeptical, thinking that the author was just using these rare, top of the line vehicles like they were store brand cereal. So I read the book convinced that it would reek of stale overused stereotypes in every other story. Well it turned out to be a huge girly love story like I had expected. But what I didn't expect, and don't let anyone know this(especially not the Chevy guys), but I loved it. I read it all in one night, a night that was supposed to yield a rebuilt carburetor. But my Holley carb had to wait for Jeana and Mickey and Billie Joe, and I don't regret it one bit. The story line was excellent and constantly had me wanting to read more of it. My wife must have thought I was under the car with another woman with all the lauging I was doing out in my garage, because she came out to see what was "so freakin hilarious," as she put it. Well she read it the night after I finished and absolutely LOVED it. Although she did keep asking me why there was so much grease on the pages. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great story, not just a love story, but a lot more. This was one of the best books I have read in a long time, and I hope there is a second book on the way? I did have one problem with it however, I felt that Mickey was spending way too much time with Jeana and not enough time with his Ford. But I guess Jeana was just that one special girl we all have. And he really didn't need that much time to work on his Mustang anyway, those Fords run forever you know!

A beautifully written novel for all ages. Ms. Scarbrough captures the spirit and energy of youth in the seventies. Her characters are not only well developed they come alive for the reader. You will laugh and cry over this love story!
