Teen Fiction

I enjoy Teen Fiction. When I read I try to alternate between genres and right now I am reading a book I found in the Teen Fiction section at Chapters. For the past few years I have been reluctant to pick up any books from that section because I was afraid that I would be reading something that I could no longer relate to. I was very wrong. Sometimes I find I relate more to the young adult books than to the adult books. There seems to be a wonder, energy and adventure that is not always present in adult books. Right now I am reading:

Sarah Dessen - The Truth About Forever

Macy's summer stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development. But Macy's plans don't anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or ... Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn't fit Macy's life at all--so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So ... happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before her eyes the year before?
