The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen


After reading Camryn’s review below… now I want to go to Summer Brain Camp!  Looks to me like Sarah Dessen has done it again!


The Truth About Forever

Macy Queen is looking forward to a quiet, do-nothing summer. Her boyfriend, the perfect Jason Talbot, is away for the summer at Brain Camp, and she’s taking over his boring library-counter job. She plans on studying all summer, and hanging out with her mom. Macy carries a heavy burden in her heart. She feels responsible for her dad’s death. That is, until she meets the Wish Catering crew and gets a taste of the chaos that is catering. Macy, right away, gets a job at Wish for the summer. She meets new friends, and loves her summer job. But the best part of Wish, is not the food, or the chaos, but Wes. Artistic, perfect Wes. Wes and Macy grow closer over the summer, but before they can really be together, she has a hurdle to jump. That hurdle, is accepting that her dad’s death wasn’t her fault. But can she forgive herself? Or will she miss out on Wes because of her denial?


The Truth About Forever is a novel by Sarah Dessen. The majority of Sarah Dessen’s novels are great, light and easy summer reads. This is one of them. Recommended for a young adult audience, The Truth About Forever isn’t one you want to miss!


Camryn is 13 years old, and enjoys reading YA books of the fantasy and romance genre. A few of her favorite books are “Hourglass” by Myra McEntire, “The Other Countess” by Eve Edwards, “Hush, Hush” by Becca Fitzpatrick, “The Immortals” series, the “Marked” series and the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” series.  When she’s not reading she enjoys watching Gilmore Girls or going to book sales for more books to add to her ever-growing collection.

  1. Another great review, Camryn! I am embarrassed to admit I have not yet read a Sarah Dessen book! Last year, I gave a talk about books, reading, and writing to my son’s 8th grade class (and the other 8th grade classes at his school), and the girls couldn’t believe that with all that I read, I had missed Sarah Dessen. So, I will definitely have to try her – this sounds like a good one to start with!


    Great Books for Kids and Teens

    1. Sarah Dessens are a YA girl classic. Almost all of the girls I know (that read) and are the right age have read as many as they can get their hands on. They are just superb books!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
