BookBags (45): The Truth about Forever (#ReadADessen Blog Tour)

Monthly feature where I pair books with bags or share what's in a bag (mine or otherwise!) est. 4/2013.

To get ready for the release of Sarah Dessen's upcoming book, Once and For All, Penguin has teamed up with some lucky bloggers (thank you again!) to share posts about each of Dessen's previous books each week. This week highlights This Lullaby and my personal favorite, The Truth About Forever.

To celebrate, I'm doing something that I love: pairing cute bags with a book close to my heart.

And if the cute covers haven't convinced you yet, here's why you should read The Truth About Forever: The main character, Macy is so easy to connect with! I remember relating to her need to do things perfectly and not let anyone down and feeling excited for her when she decided to break out of this cage she created. She joins Wish catering on a whim, makes friends and the best part – meets Wes. I loved watching their relationship unfold, as it turned from most platonic to obviously something more. But the book is so much more than romance. It deals with grief, family, friendship and growing up. All the things I love in a young adult book! (Please tell me I've convinced you to read this now, if you haven't already!)
