Review: The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

So I'm officially in love with this author now. This was the second book I've read of hers now, and I loved it, just as I loved the first one (Just Listen.) I know she's been around awhile and I'm kind of late "discovering" her, but that's cool because I still have lots to pick from and catch up on!

This one was about a girl who's struggling with her father's death. Both her and her mom aren't dealing with it too well, not talking about things and such. She tries to be perfect for her perfect boyfriend, but learns that really isn't the way. During the summer, while he's gone to "brain camp" she meets some new friends that help her to see things a little differently and help her to break out of the rut she's put herself in since her dad died.

Wonderful story. I really look forward to catching up with all her other books!
