"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 from the protagonists' alternating points of view....A swoon-inducing and heartbreaking novel for most YA collections." --School Library Journal"Gottfred is plainly a talent to watch. Both emotionally satisfying and sure to be much discussed." --Kirkus Reviews"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"A touching, relatable, and highly appealing coming-of-age romance." --The Horn Book
