Cover Art for Release Cover Art for I Never

Release by Patrick Ness 

 

Adam needs to let go. Even though his new boyfriend Linus is just about perfect, he can’t seem to stop thinking about his ex, Enzo—and Enzo’s going-away party is that night. Adam’s brother just dropped a bombshell on the family, and Adam’s best friend Angela is moving to the Netherlands. His pastor father still can’t seem understand his son, and his creepy boss can’t keep his hands off Adam. But before he can deal with any of that, Adam needs to pick up the flowers. With nods to two classics—Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway and Judy Blume’s ForeverRelease, the new novel from Patrick Ness, is an experience in anticipation.

 

I Never by Laura Hopper 

 

Laura Hopper’s debut I Never brings Forever forward into the 21st century. Janey never has gone all the way, even though she’s popular, has good friends, is considering top colleges and runs track and is a star on the debate team. However, a devastating announcement from her parents throws her otherwise placid teenage life into a tailspin. When her classmate, dreamy Luke Hallstrom, notices her on a flight they coincidentally share back home after the holidays, Janey’s romantic life is set in motion. Teens will recognize themselves as Janey struggles with her identity as someone’s girlfriend, finding confidence and reveling in her own merits and deciding that age-old question—when to say yes.
