Stephanie Barrano finds her first love at fourteen. Jordan is a senior in high school and lets their age gap come between any possible romance. They become great friends, and she tells him her deepest and darkest secrets. Once Stephanie is a senior, she has a chance encounter with Jordan and he agrees to take her to her prom. After an amazing night, tragedy strikes. Not only does Jordan blame Stephanie, who has always thought she was a death magnet, but he wants her out of his life.
For Always took me under ten hours to read. I picked it up, and couldn't make myself put it down. The romance between Stephanie and Jordan isn't something that develops easily. Over the years, they see other people, they fight with each other, push each other away, and save each other. I really enjoyed the fact that the story took place over a few years so you could see how the characters grew up and matured. It's not always flowers and butterflies for the characters. They are full of so many strong emotions such as love, loss, depression, guilt, and hopelessness. The story also touches on teen issues such as drugs, drinking, and sex. For Always is an emotional roller coaster full of love, loss, and hope through the lives of these teenagers as they live life moment to moment.
