The Problem with Forever is a book that makes you obsessed for a few weeks, and then you kind of forget all about it. Needless to say, Armentrout writes beautifully about Mallory Dodge, a girl who has a troubled past in her foster home and her only hero is her foster brother Rider. But Mallory is in a much better place now with Carl and Rosa, and is ready to face the next obstacle in her life; public high school. Mallory was always told to be quiet and not say a word in her frightful past, thus now she struggles with speaking and anxiety. But everything takes an unexpected turn when she sees Rider in the hallway of her new school and everything, everything falls back onto her like a landslide. Everything she tried so hard to forget, comes back to her in flashbacks. But with Rider there to share her pain, she realizes that she can become much more than what she was before and can fight her past with the help of friends. Personally, I enjoyed this book in the beginning but the middle kind of fell short for me. Then it all wrapped up nicely at the end, so I would recommend this for a long road trip so you can appreciate how it is all put together. My favourite part of this novel were the characters; especially Ainsley, Hector and Jaden even though they were supporting characters.

This was a superb read. There is simply so much there in terms of character development. With Mallory in particular, at times you feel like you even play a role in her decisions. The characters are adorable and you find yourself falling in love with them on every page. It is a romance but that intertwines with the rest of the plot.

really good and empowering book. helped me realize the importance of speaking up when something needs to be said and how to find myself. It made my thankful for my loving home and realize not everyone has the same love or chances but deserves the same happiness.

Another Good Reads Choice Award nominee that sounded good. Unfortunately it ended up being too YA for me. I liked the premise of Mallory and Ryder's strong bond from surviving a terrible foster home together. I could relate to Mallory's anxieties having my own social anxiety. But Mallory's inner dialogue was too sophmoric for me. Also, I was looking for a drama, not a first romance. Teens may like this, but adults will want to skip this one.

Sweet YA romance, exactly what you'd expect from Jennifer Armentrout. Trigger warning: past abuse, brief scenes of violence
