Never Say Never (Part 1) by Melinda Sutherland
Let me first say that I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest spoiler free opinion.
Props to Renee Ericson for designing the cover which suites the book so well!
This is going to be hard for me to put into words without spoiling it for you all. But I will do my best. 🙂
I really enjoyed reading Never Say Never. It was such an emotional story. And when I say emotional I mean I actually got misty eyed! Now if you knew me on a personal level you would know I’m what most call a hard ass. I don’t cry, like EVER! LOL So props to Sutherland for taking me out of my comfort zone.
This story is about a teenager in high school named Amanda. She has had a hard life, harder than I think anyone let alone a teenager should endure. Though I can’t put myself in her shoes, and lord knows I wouldn’t want to, Amanda reminded me of so many immature girls back when I was younger. Wait I still know some even now! Those immature, extremely inexperienced or just ignorant ones who do things without any regard of the consequences that may come and bite them in the ass. I will give her the benefit of the doubt; she witnessed horrid things and had personal experience with mental AND physical abuse. There is an incident there that just broke my heart! Though no one died I grieved for Amanda.
With everything she went through she pushed forward and sought a better life, a life where she could be happy. She had a good support group which I thought was amazing!
In the process of seeking her happiness Amanda bumps into Chris, a fellow school mate. Who is such an amazing kid! OMG he was so sweet to her something she wasn’t used to.
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know hoe to live.” – GOETHE, Faust
With Chris things started to turn around for her. You can feel the love they have for each other jump off the pages. And then there’s a MAJOR CLIFFHANGER but I must say I am excited to find out what happens next!
