Staff Reviews


I'll admit, when I started The Truth About Forever I did not expect it to be good, or even great. It was just another average book to pass the time waiting for my next favorite to come along. Little did I know that this was it! Constantly I'd find myself smiling or laughing out loud, glad that I was reading it in my room and not in public. What made it so special to me though was the way it combined this light humor with deep heartfelt feeling and emotions on tragedies we all hope never to face.
