Katherine and her boyfriend Micheal are the perfect couple: they share a serious but cute relationship, and they trust each other. Katherine's parents think they're taking their relationship too fast, too soon. Katherine and Micheal are destined to be together, but the conflict is they will be leaving for college in the fall. Katherine has a little sister Jaime, who is an artist and designs rugs for her family. She wishes she could be like her sister, but they're completely different. Jaime has a little crush on Micheal, but wishes he had a younger brother. Katherine has a huge influence on Jaime, thats why she decides to go to summer camp with her to teach tennis. In summer camp the trouble starts when she sees this hot guy and starts to like him. Katherine feels the tention between them and she kisses him. Then one day she plans to spend the day with her new man, but when she gets a visit from some one she least expected to see.
Have you ever read a book that made you think about love? Forever does, you think of all the relationships that you've been in. And why did your relationship end. The perfect relationship does it exist? In this book it does. Blume is an amazing author, she makes you feel like if you are there in the "Big Moment", by using all the right words. I just love how Blume uses the lead characters Katherine and Micheal to keep the reader reading the book. I enjoyed Blume's book, and if you like a good love story, you will too.
