It’s been a while since I’ve read a intense, emotional, and raw book. For me I’ve been reading so many light-hearted reads, but this book took my breath away.
Jennifer L. Armentrout, the author of The Problem With Forever, did an unbelievable job with this novel. After reading the first few pages, I did not want to put it down, and neither will you.
The Problem With Forever is about a girl named Mallory who grew up in the foster care system. Due to her past, she has spent nearly all of her life fighting fears that have silenced her.
While her adoptive parents cheer her on from the sidelines, she fights her trauma. Now she’s decided after years of homeschooling and healing, she wants to attend public school.
As a young girl who had been through a lifetime of difficulties, high school was another obstacle she had decided to face.
When the first day of school arrives, her past suddenly resurfaces before her eyes. High school would be hard enough, but how could she handle this?
I don’t want to giveaway any more information, but if this little snipet of the story has caught your interest you should give it a read. This book is heavy, real, and heart wrenching.
