Well, it's a psychedelic cover...
I have never read Judy Blume's Forever. Hadn't even heard of it until I was well beyond the targeted audience. I know it's famous and all. It makes no difference, me revealing this fact, I'm just saying. In Tanya Lee Stone's A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl, Forever is armor.
A novel in poems told in the voice of three girls who are all scammed by the very same boy. Each girl is in a very different place in her life, and each girl values her individuality. It is however, how each reacts to the to him, that makes all the difference.
It's a quick, empowering read. And yeah, there's sex, so 14+
