Never date your best friendAt the start of high school, their freshman year, Dave and Julia created the Nevers list: a list of things they vow never to do in order to create the ultimate original high school experience. It’s their senior year now and with weeks left, Julia and Dave decide to conduct an experiment and complete all the Nevers on the list—things like never dye your hair a color found in a rainbow, never hook up with a teacher and never date your best friend. In doing the Nevers, both Julia and Dave discover something that they would not have otherwise.
Always be original
Sometimes rules are meant to be broken
Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids—the ones who sit at 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 die 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 clichés, they've actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love. --Goodreads
