The Truth About ForeverThe Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Teen love story, family loss, emotional recovery story with both humorous and poignant scenes. Interesting and real characters with good dialogue made this an enjoyable fun read, BUT why is it considered "good" YA fiction when it encourages impulsive behavior, e.g. getting drunk with a bunch of people you don't know and sneaking out late at night? The epilogue is too perfect. A happy and meaningful life is not the result of the "live a little...you should be out partying" philosophy.
