Judy Blume's classic novel, now available with a brand-new cover look to celebrate the 40th anniversary. 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.
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 thirty years in print, a teenage bestseller.
