Coming to bookstores May 2018.
Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It’s not a curse or anything, it’s just the way things are, and Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theatre, and fulfilling her dream school’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible.
But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as none other than Juliet–yes, that Juliet–in her high school’s production. It’s a nightmare. No–a disaster. Megan’s not an actress and she’s certainly not a Juliet. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script.
Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen–thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes, and wonders: shouldn’t a girl get to play the lead in her own love story?
PRAISE FOR ALWAYS NEVER YOURS:
“One of the best, most painfully real and hilarious portrayals of teen life that I’ve read. Kick-ass, poignant, achingly funny and spot on. This book has it all–a stand-up hero, strong friendships, witty banter, serious life questions. How do I love it? Let me count the ways.”—Huntley Fitzpatrick, author of My Life Next Door
“In Always Never Yours, as in all of the best Shakespearean send-ups, the course of true love does not run smoothly, but it sure is swoony. You can’t help but root for Megan, the novel’s funny, bold, unapologetic and endearing heroine, as she struggles to learn that she too is brave enough to be the star of her own story.”—Julie Buxbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things
“Romance, humor, and a spunky heroine the Bard himself would surely get behind! Feminist readers will root for Megan on her complicated-but-charming quest for true love.”—Micol Ostow, bestselling author of Mean Girls: A Novel with Tina Fey
“If you like Morgan Matson books, Shakespeare, brash and fierce heroines and reserved boy playwrights who are just doing their best, this is the book for you. I was absolutely delighted by it, and I know you will be too!”—Amanda on Goodreads
