Truth About Forever, The

Sarah Dessen
Macy's summer stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development. But Macy's plans don't anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or…Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn't fit Macy's life at all—so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So…happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before her eyes the year before?

One of my favorite Dessen novels. Beautifully woven story without the flowery language. Loveable, relatable, and realistic characters. Wonderful, complex storyline. Would recommend.

Yes, well, I can tell I'm in a bad reading mood when Dessen isn't fully engaging me.

And then I finished it the night before vacation and being offline. I did, finally, get into the groove, and then I loved it. Dessen should be required reading for all the overachievers. Not [b:Life of Pi|4214|Life of Pi|Yann Martel|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1320562005s/4214.jpg|1392700], which is actually required for the rising eighth graders. I just think allegory is wasted on the young.

Library copy.
