Forever, or a Long, Long Time by Caela CarterFrom rising new talent Caela Carter, author of My Life with the Liars, comes an achingly beautiful and endearing story about two foster children who want desperately to believe that they’ve found their forever home.

And even now that they’ve been adopted, Flora still struggles to believe in forever. So along with their new mother, Flora and Julian begin a journey to go back and discover their past—for only then can they really begin to build their future.

Trauma does not define a person, but it can cause seemingly endless aftershocks. Flora and Julian, a sister and brother who spent a considerable amount of time in the foster care system, are still feeling these aftershocks almost a year after being adopted. The adults must put aside their own anxieties to help Flora and Julian search their past for answers. Flora and Julian have several theories about where they come from—many are magical and very beautiful—but the siblings are stubborn and refuse to believe any origin story without proof. I found myself sucked into their powerful belief that any origin was possible and was ready for the story to turn into fantasy, revealing that the siblings truly did crawl out of the horizon.
After years of foster care, some of it bordering on abusive, they have only dim memories of their past and have come up with many theories of how they came to be. Each chapter begins with one of their theories. Julian still sneaks food and hides it in his closet, and Flora frequently has trouble talking. With the help of a therapist, their parents decide the best way for them to move on is to face their past, and so they go on a trip, starting with a visit to their most recent foster home, then working backward. The characters are memorable and realistically portrayed, and the story seems heartbreakingly real. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
