You’ll never forget your first time...reading Forever, Judy Blume’s groundbreaking novel about teen sexuality, as an ebook.
When you build up something in your mind—really imagine it, wish for it—sometimes, when it actually happens, it doesn’t live up to your expectations.
True love is nothing like that.
Especially not for Katherine and Michael, who can’t get enough of each other. Their relationship is unique: sincere, intense, and fun all at the same time. Although they haven’t been together all that long, they know it’s serious. A whole world opens up as young passion and sexuality bloom.
But it’s senior year of high school, and there are big changes ahead. Michael and Katherine are destined for another big “first”: a decision. Is this the love of a lifetime, or the very beginning of a lifetime of love?

I read this book and though it was okay. Some parts were inappropriate though, so it should be a 15+ book. I got it at the library in the kids section!! Five year olds could be reading about this stuff! I do recommend it though.
I absolutely didnt like this book, when i started reading it i thought it was entertaining, but as i kept reading I didnt think it was as good as they had told me, in some parts the book is too descriptive about sex, i kept reading because i thought the story was going to be worth it and i could just ignore the sex parts, but at the end i basically thought the whole point of this book was aboout sex and nothing else, it depends on your interests.
Forever, as in the 1980
I wouldn't buy this book in print nor on e-read version! This book is from the 80's or 90's, and as a student who had to read this for a college course on sex and gender, I hated this. I wouldnt read it for leisure. Sure, it might be helpful for parents of very young children(when they need the *S* talk about the birds and bees), but for a teen, 14+, this isn't the best.
This book is also severely outdated!
Yes, this book was written by Blume for her daughter, to give her a sense of hope but also a sense of reality as the child approached that sort of maturity.
This book involves "Ralph" which is the name of a boy's private part, and is used to reference said part, repeatedly throughout the novel.
This book, in the early chapters, provides a sense of "first love" and "puppy love" with the ever-wished-for 'boy is hormonal, girl doesn't want to move so fast, boy might not want to move so fast and doesnt pressure the girl at first' sort of motif.
**This involves peer pressure and sexual content, please be warned.
