Flyleaf YA Book Club discusses The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

All teen and adult readers are welcome, but finish the book or prepare for spoilers!  Whether you’re an actual “young adult” or an older adult who appreciates a good YA novel, join us for our young adult book club.  We always have snacks (especially candy) and an easygoing debate about our selection for each month.  We typically meet 2nd Fridays every month at 6pm, but check out our future event dates for specifics.

About The Truth About Forever:

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?

Sarah Dessen delivers a page-turning novel that carries readers on a roller coaster of denial, grief, comfort, and love as we watch a broken but resilient girl pick up the pieces of her life and fit them back together.
