Book Description

There's a first for everything.

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?

    La pecca di questo libro è che risale agli anni Settanta, quindi si limita a suggerire di usare la pillola (mentre oggi è decisamente meglio usare il preservativo, per evitare malattie). Però dice le cose come stanno in modo chiaro.

    * Io ero abituata a pensare che se leggi a sufficienza su un certo argomento, automaticamente impari a fare ogni cosa come si deve. Ma leggere e fare non sono la stessa cosa.

    之前修兒童文學時 曾在推介書單上 在青少年文學史上 這位作者佔有一重要地位
    她所寫的幾本作品 即使在社會變革劇烈的美國1960年代 也曾經是禁書
    只因為在書寫青少年時期的少男少女與家庭互動關係和懞懞懂懂的愛情外 毫不避諱地談到月經及性關係
    對已經走過那個不上不下年紀的我來說 雖然覺得現在的自己似乎也還在一個尷尬的年齡階段
    倒也沒有那種「啊 如果當年讀過就好了」的心態 只是好奇美國家庭到底是如何教養孩子的
    從這本書及一般看到的電影中 那些相當於我們高中時期的青少年 為什麼就像是個大人般
    而為什麼我有時候仍會不禁覺得自己還像個小孩似的

    Forever的主角是一對十八歲的年輕情侶,這段戀情的結尾也敗在年輕。 但重要的是過程。 書裡提到『性是死亡的解藥,因為想要證明自己還活著。』這番話讓我想起911期間,報上刊載存活的紐約客們瘋狂的做愛,因為不確信自己還有沒有明天;也有些伴侶分手了,因為發現危難當頭、自己卻不是想和身邊這個人在一起。

    記得是小六,全家人在書局閒逛時母親意有所指遞給我的。 不知道當時母親究竟看過裡面內容沒有?

    初讀時是不以為然的。(年少輕狂呵,總認為具有繁複華麗詞藻的文學作品才值得買) 但是,為什麼在不同的人生階段(尤其是初戀時),總會從書架間抽出來翻閱,並極想要向它請教? 即便有些描述並不夠貼切,但它終究比健康課本或是A片都還要多了少女情懷和真實性。 終究是文學呵。包裝過的性更較人容易接受(或學習?深有同感?)。 不知不覺竟從頭到尾完完整整地唸了五六遍。

    確實是可以當成性教育的參考讀物。 情節寫實,不像大多數的愛情小說過份浪漫,forever只有血淋淋的愛情現場;不少對話,其實有在教導青少年對愛情、對性正確觀念的感覺,但是呈現的手法很高明,不會很突兀,以前也有看過故事中就出現:「那你可以打電話去xx機構」然後就開始講那個機構的事,頓時讓我有種看宣導短片的感覺==''

    Do you remember your first time?

    Katherine and Michael won't ever forget theirs. They were seniors in high school. Totally crazy for each other, they thought they had found the one. It was first love, and it was perfect: long talks on the phone, ski trips, and double dates when they simply couldn't wait to be alone.

    But was Katherine and Michael's relationship the love of a lifetime, or merely the beginning of a lifetime of love?

    Relive the memories in this new edition of Judy Blume's classic and beloved novel. Fall in love all over again with Forever . . . .
