Forever One, A Sweet, Growth-Oriented Novel

Forever One is a story of two groups that go through challenges recognizing each others' strengths. It is a novel that is lifelike with a lesson that you can internalize. 

Forever OneJudging the Book by its Cover -  a first glance review:

The cover shows two girls, sitting side by side with their arms overlapping, displaying their comfort and friendship. 
It seems like a girls' high school political novel, which it is. 

Some Details I Liked:

The story-line is factual enough, with credible details enabling the reader to easily relate to what the character is going through.  
It is well written in the sense that I found myself sympathizing with the characters and hoping that things would go well for them. 

Who This Book is For:

I think that elementary through high school kids would most appreciate this novel, as well as adults or educators involved with that age group. 

Who This Book Isn’t For:  

This isn't an ultra complex plot with suspense and a thrilling ending. It is more of a happily ever after tale. 

What I Didn’t Like/Would Have Made it Better: 

The story had a few episodes that didn't have a follow up. Along with that were events not mentioned. For example, Nosson was going to get engaged. All that we read about is that the girls bought gowns for the wedding. We don't know if the wedding happens or any details about the engagement.
In many books there are three symbols or a line indicating a switch of setting. Forever One only has a space for the differentiation of time. Therefore, it sometimes takes a few lines to understand what is happening.

In Conclusion:  

This is a very sweet powerful with an important lesson.


I received this book for the purpose of reviewing it, but that it no way changed the way I read it and reviewed it.
