Waiting on Wednesday (25): NEVER ALWAYS SOMETIMES

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

Author: Adi Alsaid
Release date: August 4, 2015

Summary: 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 cliche high school kids--the ones who sit a 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 #5, never dye your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. 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. 

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

Thoughts: This just sounds so adorable. I absolutely love the cover, and the summary sounds so perfect. I haven't read Adi's other book yet, but this one sounds even more up my alley than that one did. I've been super into contemporary YA lately, so this is a perfect choice for today's WoW!
