All The Forever Things

“Jolene Perry always has a great sense for the emotional heartbeat of young adult stories and this is no different. Gabe has grown up in a funeral home and her friend Bree has always been the one person who understands this darker side of her life–but now Bree has fallen for the one guy Gabe can’t stand, and both of them are floundering as this new relationship threatens to unmoor their always steady friendship. Meanwhile, Gabe isn’t quite sure what to do with the new guy in town, who has just lost his dad. A lovely story about friendship, loss, and the messy lives we live.”

Gabriella Osborn (Gabe) and Bree have been besties since the horror of 7th grade PE.

Gabe’s love of vintage came from Bree’s obsession, and Bree is the only friend who doesn’t make a big deal over Gabe living above a funeral home.

So when Bree begins to date Gabe’s sworn enemy, she can’t believe her best friend would break their sisters before misters pact.

And then there’s the new student… Tall, lanky, and dresses in the same quirky vintage style that Gabe’s obsessed with, Gabe’s a bit smitten. But without the support of her friend, she has no idea how to move forward with a guy she likes so much.

As distractions continue to pull the friends further apart, tragedy strikes, but just when they need each other more than ever, neither knows how to bridge the gap they’ve created.

Do friendships really survive high school? And are first loves just experiences, something to check off a list, or something more?
