    A word of warning This review will be conducted from a soapboxwhich, if you think about it, is a completely baffling expressionAs one would expect from a young feminist gynecologist, of course.Let s cut to the chase This book is about a realistically intense relationship between Kath and Michael, two teenagers in the 1970s They meet, fall in love with a speed only teens are capable of, he wants to sleep with her, sh

    Edit on 12 11 2011 To anyone who s got a problem with this review 1 Yes, I know that this book was a big deal when it was released That doesn t mean that when I read it in this day and age that I m going to judge it by it s historical significance I definitely appreciate it but it doesn t change the fact that I read it when I did and didn t like it and I don t want to have to constantly justify myself for that Let s i

    To my dear friend, Christine s credit, she didn t recommend this personally I just shamelessly meddled with her shelves and found this novel You may as well proceed with her wonderful one line review if you want to avoid the rant y one coming your way But before the rant, let me just greet my sweet friend, A HAPPY BIRTHDAY.I hope you re having the best time and even though I didn t like this novel, again, it s the thoug

    I read this book because I m attempting to read or reread some classic YA books Now, I m a so so fan of Judy Blume, I know she has a lot of die hards out there I recently read Everything I Need to Know About Being a Girl I learned from Judy Blume but I guess I wasof a Beverly Cleary kid.This book is about first loves and first sexual experiences The story itself was good, but I think Judy Blume left out a lot of details The

    What do you do when the love of your life.isn t Forever answers that question with a simple and unflinching response you move on Kath and Michael meet at a party and quickly fall into a very physical romance After roughly a few months, Kath finally gets up the courage to have sex with Michael, believing she is in love and that she and Michael will last forever Michael too feels he and Kath are meant to be, so they flounder al

    How depressing.Keeping in mind this book was published in the mid 70s, it s still incredibly relevant to today s society In fact, apart from the absence of conspicuous technology like cell phones, this could have taken place in the 2000s It s a timeless story, and the reason it s getting such a low rating from me is purely personal Michael reminded me of the ex boyfriend who broke my heart and whom I still have nightmares about

    How have I not read this sooner I am almost 40 and only finished this today Better late than never I consider this book to be an education, therefore the first thing I was impressed with, with my edition being from 2005, was the author s entry at the beginning covering the absolutely essential updated requirements for safe and healthy sexual responsibility This was an easy read, a nice coming of age story, set in the mid seventie

    I hardly want to admit I read this book kind of funny that a censored book like this managed to make it pretty far around my 5th or 6th grade in Utah it seems all my friends at the time had read it, were reading it, or were planning to read it I think I actually made it about half way through the book and just didn t feel like it was something I should be reading having a strong religious background encouraging waiting until marria

    I m sure this book was very important in its time and was the means by which many girls learned about sex Unfortunately for Forever, I am not interested in PSA books I prefer multidimensional characters, a plot, and emotions Weird, huh The lack of the aforementioned qualities is what really drove this book into 1 star territory for me, but there were a few special qualities that dug its grave even deeper 1 EllipsesThere were so many
