The Truth About Forever

I wish I had more time to read for fun. The other day, while taking a study break, I came across this quote:

I couldn't help but to obsess over how true the meaning behind it was. Wanting to find out more, I Googled  "the truth about forever". Turns out, it is a book by Sarah Dessen, a famous American author who has written a number of fiction novels for young adults. Even better, my roommate has the book stashed away somewhere in our coat closet. I am really tempted to do some treasure hunting this weekend.

Here is a description of the book:
Macy's summer stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development. But Macy's plans don't anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or ... Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn't fit Macy's life at all--so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So ... happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before her eyes the year before? Sarah Dessen delivers a page-turning novel that carries readers on a roller coaster of denial, grief, comfort, and love as we watch a broken but resilient girl pick up the pieces of her life and fit them back together. 

Have any of you read this?
