Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid


Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

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 cliches so 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; 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. 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 they've actually been missing out on high school And maybe even on love.
