Foreverland | Review & Blog Tour

TITLE: Foreverland

AUTHOR: Nicole C. Kear


RELEASE DATE: April 21st, 2021

GENRE(S): Middle-Grade Fiction--Contemporary, Adventure



Margaret is tired of everything always changing. Middle school has gone from bad to worse. Her best friend is becoming a stranger. And her family—well, it's not even a family anymore.

So Margaret is running away to Foreverland, her favorite amusement park. Hiding out there is trickier than she expects--until she meets Jaime, a thrill-seeking, fast-thinking runaway who teaches Margaret how to stay one step ahead of the captain of security.

At first, this after-hours, all-access pass to the park is a dream come true: sleepovers in the Haunted House, nonstop junk food, and an unlimited ticket to ride. But as the runaways learn each other’s secrets, they must face the reasons they left their normal lives behind. With the Captain closing in and Jaime's future on the line, can Margaret finally take control?


It’s been quite awhile since I read a middle grade book that was this good. It was quite difficult to put down and I was definitely tempted to read under the desk at school.

One of my favorite parts was the interactions between the characters. I loved the humor and was grinning the whole time. I also appreciated how it wasn’t all fluff—the characters had flaws and difficulties that they were experiencing.

Also, I have to point out that this one has a beautiful cover.

This one is perfect for the whole family and I highly recommend to readers of all ages.
