Someday, she'll be my girl." At the fifth grade honors program, three eleven-year-old boys are captivated by a brilliant little red-haired girl named Jeana Russell as she recites the poem she wrote. They know this girl is special, and each boy vows to win her heart. As these four unconventional teenagers grow up together on the Alabama Gulf Coast in the late 1970s, they are bound to each other by friendship, rivalry, and raging hormones. Jeana struggles to deal with the intense and sometimes violent relationships the boys have with her and with each other. The road she travels to adulthood is paved with laughter, tears, and more than one kind of heartache, but Jeana holds on through it all to the one thing she never questions: a love that's true blue.

True Blue Forever by Joyce Sterling Scarbrough is a book written for all the smart girls who are tired of sitting by and watching the best guys get duped by pretentious, shallow girls who only care about their "images." The heroine is a girl who refuses to be anything but herself, and she finds a guy whose character is as fine as his looks.
Although it is foremost a love story, True Blue Forever also has plenty of sports, teenage rivalries and raging hormones, seventies music and culture, and super-cool muscle cars. It's about being true to yourself and sticking to your beliefs, friendships that last a lifetime, holding on to your dreams, and taking the responsibility for choices you make.
And if you hate books with unsatisfying endings, consider this: when you read the last page of True Blue Forever, you'll hold it to your chest and say, "Ahhhh..."From the Author:
My husband and I attended the same high school thirteen years apart. I always wondered if we would have liked each other in school because he was a three-sport jock and I was the valedictorian, so I created a couple with personalities similar to ours and True Blue Forever was born.
