When Carolina and Trevor meet on their first day of school, something draws them to each other. They gradually share first kisses, first touches, first everythings. When they're together, nothing else matters. But one of them will make a choice, and the other a mistake, that will break what they thought was unbreakable. Both will wish that they could fall in love again for the first time . . . but first love, by definition, can't happen twice.
Told in Carolina and Trevor's alternating voices, Forever for a Year by B. T. Gottfred is an up-close-and-personal story of two teenagers falling in love for the first time, and discovering it might not last forever.
“Poignant, quirky, and achingly honest, Forever for a Year is a pitch-perfect debut about first loves, first heartbreaks, and first forevers. This is the reason we read YA.” —Jessica Brody, author of the Unremembered Trilogy
“Debut author Gottfred captures the starry-eyed exhilaration of first love (and nervous first explorations of sex) with tenderness and humor. . . . Readers will need hearts of steel not to fall for this love story and its two storytellers.” -Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Like Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor and Park, this work is a tale of first love. . . . A swoon-inducing and heartbreaking novel.” -School Library Journal
