Book Description

Erin's father has gone bankrupt and so her family have moved to the local council estate. Erin is horrified and can't stand living without a phone, being away from her friends and having to share a room with her sister. Liam, on the other hand, loves life on the estate. Everyone respects him and wants to be his friend. Liam really likes Erin and is convinced it's just a matter of time before she succumbs to his charm - but Erin has other ideas. She can't stand Liam and thinks he's all brawn and no brain. They say opposites attract - but can these two really get along?

Product Description

Review

Never Ever is a wonderfully honest tale of teenage life. At times painfully sad and downright hilarious, Helena Pielichaty has captured the teen voices of these characters perfectly.' (Ottakar's Young Adult Book of the Month)

Pielichaty has written a witty and entertaining story of changing fortunes which avoids taking a simplistic moral stance. She has an excellent ear for teenage vernacular and captures the witty repartee common among close friends. Dual narration provides the insight into Liam and Erin's developing romance and their maturation. (Books for Keeps)

The characters had very strong personalities and real attitude. (Teen Titles)

a delightful, and often very moving, account of how perceptions can change and feelings deepen. (Best Books Guide)

Book Description

No-holds barred narrative which speaks to readers as equals

From the cover of this novel I had no idea whether to expect adult chick-lit froth or a girlie young adult novel. Not wanting complaints from parents if I shelved an adult romance in the teen section of our bookshop by mistake, I thought I'd better read it first! That done, I'd definitely place it as a top-age young adult novel, girlie and great fun. Erin is in year ten, and she is having to move from her posh house onto the local council estate following her dad's bankruptcy. Not only is the family struggling to make ends meet and fighting between themselves as they settle into their new home, but to Erin's horror they're now living just down the street from Liam, the arrogant class stud. Of course, events throw them together and as time goes on each realises the other isn't so bad after all. Ever few chapters the viewpoint switches between these two chalk-and-cheese characters, so the reader can sit back and watch their walls being knocked down and their prejudices fading away.

Pielichaty is a teacher by profession and her understanding of teenage life shines through. She touches on everything from alcohol to sex, money to friendships, moving house to family identity, with sensitivity and insight, and throws in a hefty helping of humour and a stirring message of loyalty, generosity, and How We're All The Same Really. The interactions between friends, classmates and siblings ring with authenticity, and the sweet growing attraction between Liam and Erin is the icing on the cake. The verdict? Pure fluff, but it's fresh and smart and for older teens it really hits the mark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 10 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the read of this book, makes you realise what can happy but there for he grace of God go I so to speak. I think this is a book for teenagers as well as us "older ones" and would recommend, but saying that, I could put the book down and go back to it later, but did not turn the pages quickly due to boredom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Ever 28 Aug. 2013
Format:Paperback
This book was a joy too read. It was really funny how Erin hated everything about Liam and the fact that Liam loved everything about Erin.
This book is one of the many books that I would recommend to people.
However the question that I ask is, ' Is there a sequel?'

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything a teen novel needs to be 6 Mar. 2008
By TG
Format:Paperback
This is a very good book; one I'd recommend to anyone who likes teen lit. It has realistic characters, it's both funny and touching and it explores relevant social issues in Britain today, without ever seeming forced or preachy. A very worthwhile read.
