Daria is a big fan of Judy Blume’s, Forever and it shows. The references that I notice were: the white house, the red hair, the friend from the past, and the awkward clumsiness. I always wanted a totally all white house with bright colorful paintings on the wall. These are just from the first, short, 8 chapters. The reviews have been up and down, 1 star to 5. So far, I would say it is about a 3, but it is a slow start in the plot. I think the pace is suppose to mimic the painful awkwardness of a new relationship and it does.
