Publisher's Summary

Never date your best friend. Always be original. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken.

Best friends Dave and Julia were determined never to 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 number five, never dye your hair a color of the rainbow, or number seven, never hook up with a teacher. But Dave has a secret: he's broken rule number eight, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It's either that or break rule number ten, 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.

    "Never, Always, Sometimes"

    An interesting take on teenage angst. It was neat to see the point of view shift. A great author/narrator combo!

    "SO Fun!"

    Adi Alsaid does it again! This was really fun to listen to, and I didn't expect the shift in POV. The narrator does a really good job with all the different voices from teachers to jocks to the main characters. I especially liked how she could portray coolness as well as teenage angst. Awesome young adult book!!

    "just not for me"

    all in all this book had everything I usually love, but this story had me full of anxiety and it was hard to finish.

    "Started Great. Did Not End Great. "
    What made the experience of listening to Never Always Sometimes the most enjoyable?

    Here's my pasted review from Goodreads:

    This was okay for the first 80%, and then the last 20% was all blah and not convincing. It also made me question the point of the story, and now, I am not not sure there even was a point to this story.

    It's a backwards twist on a bucket list, which was fun. The best part is the adorable relationship between these two best friends. The worst part is that the story lies about character emotions, throughout, in order to inform the final outcome, which is typical and uninspired, at best.

    Excellent narration.

    "Slow start for me"
    What would have made Never Always Sometimes better?

    Expressing the characters different points of view instead of the 3rd person.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm not sure, but I know what to listen for now.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was really the 3rd person point of view that really turned me off.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Never Always Sometimes?

    There needs to be more drama at the first. It was somewhat predictable.

    "Good start, fell off."

    What starts a a pretty obvious and clichéd book about clichés pretty well ended exactly as expected.
    Funny and entertaining but not a great book. Performance didn't enhance or detract.

    "Delightful"

    I thought it was a really nice book to listen to after the whirlwind that was Empire of Storms.

    A fun little romantic comedy sort of book that I can just cuddle up with & get me back in the swing of things such as listening to other books lol XD.

    "not what I expected"

    SPOILER ALERT!

    I'm happy that this book stayed in character and is pretty realistic. a teenager taking for granted that her doctor mother wouldn't lie to her and never questioning. a teenager pining for the outside world. as an adult you realize that it's pretty fishy but for a YA novel it's perfect and I really enjoyed it.

    The voice performance was spot on too
