Grace and her boyfriend, Ander, are being hunted. The worst part of it? They’re used to it. This is their 42nd time in this situation and it never gets easier. Every time Grace Falls, she wakes up in a new life. In every new life, she runs. And whenever she runs, she Falls. The cycle repeats itself time and time again. Can Grace find her way out of this terrible loop?
This is one of those books that you really need to go into blind. When I first started reading it, I was a little put off by the similarity to Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall, but Romily Bernard takes this book in an entirely different direction. And that’s all I’m going to say about the plot. I wish that I could gush over the twists and turns and the connections between the characters, but that would ruin the story for you and I don’t want to do that.
I’ll just say that this book was really good. Even better than I expected. And I enjoyed it even more than I thought I would. I actually hardly slept for two nights because these characters had burrowed their way into my mind and I needed to know what happened next. I needed everything to be explained: why they Fall, why they act the way they do, what happened to all of their friendships.
Final rating: ★★★★☆
I received a free ARC of Never Apart from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
