Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
  fernandie | Sep 15, 2022 |
8th grade in the 80's -- full of friends and drama class and all the messaging you can take about a women's place in the home and how to be liked. Add to that a frank story about anxiety and depression and how it can be overwhelming -- I feel like it's the kind of book that a lot of middle school girls need to read -- to see that they aren't alone; to see a path out when they get very down; to see that there are lots of ways to navigate middle school and hormones and the weird messages from the world. That said, as a middle schooler in the 80s, it was kind of a traumatic experience to re-live my own memories, and it's full of aaaaaaaaaaangst. Well deserved, perfectly appropriate angst. There is a mild sexual assault as well, and I just _wish_ that things were better now. ( )

Friends Forever is about as good as book two, with some notable differences, the most significant of which is the overwhelming focus on romantic relationships and physical appearance. Hale also highlighted her depression and emotional neglect at home.

Hale has trouble organizing her graphic novels in a logical, smooth way, and frustratingly, Friends Forever is jumbled, with various story threads thrown in and then dropped. This would have benefited from a tighter focus. There's no real lesson in this book, but children who are going through similar difficulties may find it affirming.

Full review on Goodreads. ( )

Having read the other two "Friends" (Real Friends & Best Friends), this book is definitely a reflection of a more mature Shannon. I could relate to so much of what she was going through. In the eighth grade, she still struggles with anxieties and worries, but it's now including those troublesome pre-teen issues. I feel like this book (and the others) is a great choice in helping kids talk about the realities of what they are experiencing. I feel the author did a great job pouring her life onto the pages of these books. Well worth the read. ( )

Plot Summary: Shannon is in 8th grade and she's finally found herself and her people. Or so she thought. Then why does she continue to feel like she's not doing enough to reach her lofty goals, she's making so many mistakes, and she's not good enough?

Setting:

Characters:

Recurring Themes: anxiety, OCD, friendship, relationships, theatre, confidence, family, depression, relationship

Controversial Issues:
pg 139 "Jason was being gross. We were kissing in the closet, but then he kept trying to do more."
pg 143 Santa said "You don't know how much I want you." while squeezing Shannon's butt

Personal Thoughts: This book is definitely about Shannon's mental health. Despite having more friends and seeming confident in so many areas of her public life, she constantly thinks she isn't good enough. It's heartbreaking to read, and made me understand anxiety so much better. The part that was the most heartbreaking was the way she felt she couldn't be herself around her own family. This book is the perfect book for the kid who is already thinking many of these self-degrading thoughts, but I'm not sure I want them introduced too young if kids don't already feel this way. The author doesn't make it clear that other characters are not the same at the end, in fact the reader learns that even the most seemingly perfect girl is self-conscious. With the inclusion of Shannon's friend constantly making out with boys, this seems more junior high than elementary. Shannon constantly compares herself to others and thinks her problems would be solved if she could get the attention of a boy (who likes her).

Genre: realistic fiction

Pacing:
Characters: mostly just Shannon is well-developed since she is the main focus of this book
