Hi, there. Today I will talk about the book that is named “First There was Forever.” The author who is named Juliana Romano wrote this book. The first book I read by the author, Juliana Romano, is the book that is named, “Summer in the Invisible City.” I liked that book so I was excited to read this book by the same author.
So, what were my thoughts on this novel? Here it is. “First There was Forever” is a book about a girl who is named Lima. Lima has a best-friend. Her best-friend is named Hailey. The two girls were best-friends since they were children. However, something changes between the two girls. Lima is making new friends…. and so is Hailey. The two are interested in boys…. in fact, the two are interested in the same boy. Nate is the name of the boy who Hailey has always had a crush on. But Nate doesn’t glance at Hailey more than once…. he is interested in Lima instead of her.
“First There was Forever” is a book about growing-up, new-and-old friends, and love. Lima learns how to let-go of her friendship with Hailey. She makes a new friend crew. She falls for Nate. Hailey spends time with other people. She doesn’t seem interested in her friendship with Lima anymore.
So, how do I feel about this book? Well, I enjoyed this book. I loved getting into Lima’s head-space. I think many girls can relate to her. Sometimes when you grow-up your friendships change. Sometimes you make new friends…. sometimes you let old friends go there own way. Lima starts to figure-it-out…. and all of this leads to Nate.
Hailey has always loved Nate. Hailey throws herself at Nate whenever she can do so. But Hailey has his eyes set on Lima. And Lima needs to figure-out what to tell her former-best friend.
I enjoyed this book for its realistic portrayal of a young girl who is growing-up. Lima is a sensitive, thoughtful, and smart girl. I liked her a lot. I would definitely read another Juliana Romano book if I came across the book at the book store.
What rating would I give this book? I give this book a 4-star rating. It’s a great book for a teenage girl to read. It would be a great beach book. It would be a great book for a girl to read when she is relaxing this summer.
I hope you’re having a great summer.
Always with infinite love,
