#BookReview: The Problem with Forever by @JLArmentrout


Growing up, Mallory Dodge learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at a public high school. But she never imagined she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet soon it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants and the truths that need to be heard.

OMG this book was so good!! This one has all the feels you could ever ask for.  I thought when I started it I was going to hate it because it has a lot of internal dialogue but it worked out so well for this story.  The feel of this story with its characters felt like it was in multi POVs even though it wasn't.  I thought that was very interesting.  I could also see this stand alone becoming a series very easily as the author could do stories about the other characters in the book and how they are dealing with their situations.  

The story in this one about a girl who dealt with conditioning and PTSD was so emotional.  It really shows you how people feel when going through something like this.  I know that I was in a situation years ago and dealt with domestic violence and I can tell you first hand this book does very well showing you how this effects you both physically and mentally. The author did an amazing job depicting this in this story.  

This was a well paced story that will leave you both broken and inspired. I really loved the speech we get from Mallory towards the end. It really speaks to you and how those around you affect you as a whole.  The way you grew up, the people who you interact with (both good and bad), as well as situations again both good and bad.  All play a part on molding who you become. 

If you are looking for a wonderful story about a girl who was dealt a bad hand but in the end learns how to grow check this one out!
