"Macy relates this first-person story of adolescent self-discovery. During a summer in which she and her mother talk about any-and-everything except her father's sudden death--friends, a handsome artist, and the unexpected crises of "Wish Catering" to the terminally ill bring her to many realizations. Questions are a central theme, and Macy's youthful uncertainty and yearning for answers highlight the plot. Stina Nielsen's narration has an appealing tone and cadence that feature detailed nuances for each defined character. THE TRUTH ABOUT FOREVER will resonate with teen listeners. L.D.H.
