Don’t forget to tell me about the book you’re eager to read, this week, in comments!
Never Always Sometimes
, Adi Alsaid
Expected publication : August 4th 2015
Publisher : Harlequin Teen
Never date your best friend
Always be original
Sometimes rules are meant to be broken
Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids—the ones who sit at the same lunch table every day, dissecting the drama from homeroom and plotting their campaigns for prom king and queen. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they’d never, ever do in high school.
Some of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never die your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. But Dave has a secret: he’s broken rule #8, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It’s either that or break rule #10, never date your best friend. Dave has loved Julia for as long as he can remember.
Julia is beautiful, wild and impetuous. So when she suggests they do every Never on the list, Dave is happy to play along. He even dyes his hair an unfortunate shade of green. It starts as a joke, but then a funny thing happens: Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they’ve actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love.
I will admit something : I absolutely love stories with a boy-girl best friend. I know it’s cliché, but it’s my weakness. So, obviously, when I read this synopsis, I couldn’t not fall in love with it already. Two best friends trying to play with all the clichés in high school ? A list of rules, a game starting as a joke, but we both know how this is going to end ? There is not one thing I don’t love about this synopsis. I’ve been meaning to read Let’s get lost, by Adi Alsaid, for a long time now, and this book just added to my to-read list, too ! This author definitely has stories that catches my eye.
