One golden boy... Judd Jackson had it all—star football player with a college scholarship, perfect family, tons of friends, and a beautiful girlfriend. He was the most popular guy in town … until a family secret burned it all to the ground. Now, he’s the object of scorn and ridicule, and the only thing he has left is his scholarship and counting down the days until he can leave town. One goal-oriented girl... Sunny Blackfox was alone in the world, but she had big plans and big dreams to keep her occupied. She didn’t have time for anyone in her life. That was, until she came to the rescue of the boy she always had a thing for. They have everything going against them, but maybe, if they are lucky, they will make it out of town after graduation together ... or maybe never.
Maybe Never reminds us that very quickly life can change for all of us and not always for the better that people will blame others for the actions of someone they are related to and people can be exceptionally cruel. This one immediately had my interest peeked because I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to feel throughout the book but I can say that I felt a ton. I am more of a new adult fan than I am of young adult but for me this kind of fell more towards that new adult line.
How quickly the tides can change, for Judd this saying is the truth for him. To be turned on like he was, to be treated as he was, is not only heartbreaking but makes you want to stand next to him and stand up for him instead of against him like so many others do. My heart hurt for him; if I am to be honest it still hurts. Sunny didn’t have it easy either but her life was different than Judd’s had been. Sometimes it is the person you least will stand up for you, does and that person for Judd was Sunny.
Maybe Never may be a young adult romance, but don’t let that fool you, it is so much more than that. I can easily recommend Maybe Never and this will be one that stay with me for a while to come.
