I don't want to hurt you, Leslie." Sara's words stung me. Of all the ways she could have said it, she'd chosen these specific words. Not "I won't hurt you," or "I'm not going to hurt you." Those words would have calmed my fears. But no. She chose "I don't want to hurt you."

Computer analyst Leslie Howard knows all too well that the fastest way to a broken heart is to ignore

There really wasn't anything outstanding or different about the plot of this book; the story has been told a million times (or so it feels). Gay girl falls for straight girl while straight girl has a crisis about her identity. It's nothing new.

Having said that, this telling of the story impressed me more than most. The characters felt very real to me. Their emotions and reactions came across as natural, given the circumstances. There was no point that I felt confused by a character's actions; fr
In general I liked the story and the main characters. However, it does feel outdated. The last separation of the characters also seemed a little stretched.

A nice read, but not special.
An enjoyable read and as others have noted, nothing earthshattering. When I picked up this book, that's exactly what I wanted.

Overall Never Say Never is a great story that manages to pack in unrequited love, the importance of trust and the difficulty of coming out and finding who you are, it is a great little read and perfect for a Sunday afternoon sitting in the garden.

A sweet, simple story. Not bad--not earth shattering-- but cute.
Quick, easy read.. Nothing special, sweet story.
