You’ll never forget your first time...reading Forever as an eBook.

When you build up something in your mind—really imagine it, wish for it—sometimes, when it actually happens, it doesn’t live up to your expectations.
True love is nothing like that.
Especially not for Katherine and Michael, who can’t get enough of each other. Their relationship is unique: sincere, intense, and fun all at the same time. Although they haven’t been together all that long, they know it’s serious. A whole world opens up as young passion and sexuality bloom.
But it’s senior year of high school, and there are big changes ahead. Michael and Katherine are destined for another big “first”: a decision. Is this the love of a lifetime, or the very beginning of a lifetime of love?

I was 11, which makes me among one of the first generations for whom a surreptitious read of Judy Blume’s barrier-busting (pun kind of intended) novel of teen sex marked our crossing from innocence to experience (at least hypothetically).

While the novel does ignore it's more interesting characters, the main characters, Michael and Katherine, are great at representing an almost drama free teenage, sexual relationship.
