Forever Julia by Jodi Carmichael Review & Giveaway


Title: Forever Julia
Publication date: May 1, 2015
Publisher: Great Plains Publications
Author: Jodi Carmichael

Six months ago, Julia's life was perfect. Then her dad died. Now she lives with her grieving mother and sick grandmother in a puny apartment above their bookstore. After a dark bout of depression, Julia is fragile, and mourns both her father and her old life. But she has one thing to be happy about: Jeremy, the most popular boy at school, has chosen her. Jeremy's love for Julia is passionate, even obsessive. As she grows closer to Jeremy, Julia pushes her disapproving friends and family away. But Jeremy only becomes more controlling and Julia has to decide what lines cannot be crossed.


JODI CARMICHAEL lives in Winnipeg where she can often be found dancing in the living room with her two wildly imaginative daughters, her patient and supportive husband, and a scruffy Border Terrier named Zoe. Jodi’s previous book for young readers, Spaghetti Is NOT A Finger Food, won numerous awards and has been a multi-week Bestseller.

My Review:
There are many stories out there that are focused on teenagers and paranormal activities. It was refreshing to read a book that will hopefully help teenagers decipher between love and abuse. It could be verbal, physical or emotional. There is so much pressure for teenagers to become adults. With that being said this is not an easy book to read. However I am glad that there is awareness. Hopefully Julia realizes what is important, before it is too late. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
