"Never Never: Part One" by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher


SERIES: Never Never #1
GENRE: YA Contemporary/Paranormal
SOURCE: Freebie
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

Charlize Wynwood and Silas Nash have been best friends since they could walk. They've been in love since the age of fourteen. But as of this morning...they are complete strangers. Their first kiss, their first fight, the moment they fell in love...every memory has vanished. Charlize and Silas must work together to uncover the truth about what happened to them and why. But the more they learn about the couple they used to be...the more they question why they were ever together to begin with.


I've always heard lots of good things about both Hoover and Fishers' books from friends and fellow bloggers/reviewers, but never tried any of their works and that's why I decided to start from this collaboration between the two of them. I get this is something different, but I'm glad I chose to go for it.

Although readers can't understand what is going on—Charlie and Silas, we feel you!—the mystery around their sudden memory loss is what really keeps us turning page after page. The characters can't remember who they are, so the discoveries they make during this stirring journey shock them, especially since it seems like they can't really believe to be those people... Surely they are better than that? They are looking at themselves for the first time and the more they find out about their past, the choices they made and their behaviours, the more they realise they're not who they want to be. It's something that touches you because, despite the paranormal element, the self-discovery part is quite realistic.

I truly enjoyed this first part and I didn't find the ending disappointing in the latest. In fact, to me it does its job well leaving you curious to the point you know you have to grab the second part.

RATING: 3.5/5
