For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she 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 with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that 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 the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces 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.
If you are planning on reading The Problem with Forever, make sure you have a box of tissues (or more) handy. This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. My first thought when I finished this book was: I need more. I need more of Mallory and Rider. I need more of everything.
As the book progresses, we learn more about the backstories of Rider and Mallory. And let me warn you now- this book is one of the most emotional books you will ever read. Everything about this book makes for a devastating story.
I love the plot of this book. In my opinion, it was very unique and I’ve never read anything like it. This book was phenomenal (the cover is also gorgeous!). I can’t rave about it enough. Jennifer L. Armentrout does it again- an emotional book with swoony characters that leaves you wanting more. I love this book so much. I definitely recommend reading it!!
