From debut author and poet Lexa Hillyer comes the lyrical story of four seventeen-year-old friends who receive an unlikely chance to relive the perfect summer . . . and the devastating secret that could unravel it all. Elegant and evocative, Proof of Forever is one of those first novels that hooks you from the beginning and builds toward a stunning—and unexpected—end, calling to mind Gayle Forman and Ann Brashares.
Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe were once best friends. Now they barely speak. That is, until the fateful flash of a photo-booth camera transports them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed. Photos fade. Friendships dissolve. Summers end. But this one will change the girls forever . . . again.
I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I was totally enraptured by this book even before reading it, because firstly, HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COVER? IT’S SO PRETTY. Secondly, this book is about time-travelling, but it’s not sci-fi. Which makes it all the more cooler, because hello, contemporary plus time-travelling? Perfect summer read. (Not that it’s summer here, PFFT.) Also, guys, this is the ultimate girls bestfriend book. Or bestfriendS in this scenario. Basically, this book is about four girls, Tali, Joy, Luce and Joy. They used to be best friends, until Joy unexpectedly abandoned them. Two years later, Joy comes back, asking for a reunion between the four of them.For some reason, to recreate another photo strip, the flash from that photo booth sent them back in time, to the summer that changed everything.
