    "I often read steamy teen romance novels because it makes me feel young again and is just fun! I read "Forever" recently and loved it! Everything about the book just feels so real. I really felt like a teen again and like I could truly connect with all of the characters."

    " Synopsis Is there a difference between first love and true love? Judy Blume's groundbreaking novel about teen sexuality has a fresh new look. The bed is brass, covered with a patchwork quilt, and "nice and firm," Michael says, "in case you're interested." Katherine is interested. Katherine and Michael are in love, and Katherine knows it's foreverespecially after she loses her virginity to him. But when they're separated for the summer, she begins to have feelings for another boy. What does this say about her love for Michael? And what does "forever" mean, anyway? Is this the love of a lifetime, or the very beginning of a lifetime of love?"

    "This is not a new book and has been around for some time. I bought this book as a birthday present for my teenage granddaughter and decided to read it before giving it to her. There have been controversy about this book since it deals with young love and sexuality that includes some quite specific erotic and sexual scenes. The book is a little dated given the craziness of today’s teenage world but the it is written with a teenage voice and deals with some sensitive and important issues square on. It is a lovely read and I hope of value to my granddaughter in helping her mature into a woman."

    "If light erotic reading is your interest, this book adequately fills your need. It's an erotic story which focuses on the difference between true love and first love. It's a decent read but isn't anything earth shattering. "

    "There are many scenes in this which I would define as sensual. I recommended this book to a few other people, friends, and family members, and they have agreed that there are scenes which interesting, while also being captivating. I would lost track of time while reading this as there are many chapters, where I would want to now what happened next"

    "This is one of my favorite Judy Blume books. It is a story about Katherine, a young woman who gives herself to her first man and feels like he will be with her forever, but when she is away from him for the summer, she meets someone else, suddenly, she is forced to decide and figure out her feelings and see who she truly loves. This story of inner-struggle and how she determines real love from first love is one that poses the same questions for the reader and makes this a very interesting read."

    "I have been a fan of Judy Blume since I was a child. I love her writing style and the way she speaks so well to children and young adults. I picked up Forever recently and couldn't put it down. I found myself relating to the story despite being well passed the age of the intended audience. It took me right back to my teenage years. Recommended for all readers, young and old, but especially fans who grew up with Judy's books. Definitely nostalgia-inducing."

    "There are many better books in the genre, but if you want one about this subject I'd say to read it. It gives many good questions to life, and is decently rated. It suits the genre well, but it's more suited towards females. Take that with a grain of salt."

    "Judy Blume is infamous for writing books that appeal to adolescents and pre-teens. This book, however, is geared towards older teenagers who are beginning to grow into their sexuality and to have serious encounters with the opposite sex. It was published in 2014, which makes this fairly recent, considering the author has been writing since the 1970s. This book is also significantly longer, at 240 pages. This book could very well be the best book ever written by Judy Blume."

    "For those who are LGBT, a fictional depiction of a more progressive perspective of human sexuality is a step towards understanding how others feel. "Forever" is one such novel. "
