Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka - OPTIONAL

Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, 336 pages.  Penguin Books, 2018.  $18.  

Content: Language: R (45 swears; 10 “f”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: G.  



Megan Harper has accepted the fact that ever guy she dates will eventually leave her for their “true love”.  With a history of failed relationships, Megan puts on a good show of flirting and carefree attachment, but in reality Megan is beginning to lose faith in herself.  While in Drama class, she meets a boy named Owen who becomes her good friend and it’s evident they share chemistry and could become more, but Megan and Owen keep sending mixed signals.  

I didn’t enjoy reading this book.  Megan felt like two different characters because at school she was a blatant flirt and proud of it, but at home she was sweet and admitted her fears.  I also didn’t like how Megan used sex to try and make a relationship and I was disappointed in the unromantic climax.  Overall, I was disappointed.
