Julia Eccleshare's comment

Controversial when it was first published, Forever is a classic title which tenderly describes a first love affair and a first sexual experience. Michael and Katherine are in their last year at school when they begin going out together. They are sure that they love each other but are they both ready for sex? Judy Blume is tasteful and sensitive in describing Katherine’s need for certainty before she embarks on her first sexual experience; she is also wise on how Katherine’s parents subtly try to influence their daughter’s behaviour.

Synopsis

Forever by Judy Blume

Do you remember the first time? Still the bravest, freshest, fruitiest and most honest account of first love, first sex and first heartbreak ever written for teens. It was a book ahead of its time - and remains, after forty years in print, a teenage bestseller. Now with a brand-new cover look.

It's Me, Margaret; Superfudge; Blubber; Just As Long As We're Together and Forever. She has also written the novels Wifey, Smart Women, and her latest, Summer Sisters, the New York Times No. 1 bestseller. More than 75 million copies of her books have been sold, and her work has been translated into twenty-something languages.
