These two may have started their high school experiences in very different places, but the end in the same... on the outside. And sometimes the outside is where you find yourself. Sadie Allen introduces us to Judd when he's been on the outside for a while, but still hasn't accepted it, not really. He doesn't fully accept it until the one person willing to hold his hand on the outside, figuratively pulls him up, dusts him off, and he finally sees he isn't alone.
Anyone whose been on the outside looking in, will find themselves in these two. And the prom ask will make you smile... I won't say anything else. Read it, you'll fall in love.
Wow all the feels. I despise reading about bullies; it crawls my blood when high schoolers are followers to petty nonsense. But Sunny wasn't having it and it was refreshing to read someone that was never afraid of the cowards.
Judd went from golden boy to small town nobody and punching bag because of something that happened in his family; something that was completely out of his control. Sunny was the daughter of the town drunk that didn't let that affect her and was goal oriented and extremely independent. She was no pushover.
Judd & Sunny developed a relationship and she was placed on the radar of the cowards because of her relationship with Judd. They were several incidents and there was a serious incident that will have you gasping especially when it's revealed the person behind it.
I liked how Sunny stood up to the cowards that taunted Judd on a daily basis and how Judd with the support of Sunny started standing up for himself. They both had so much grief but they never put their heads down. It seemed liked these two grew up way ahead of time with all the issues they had to face.
The epilogue left me with questions but it was good to see where it was heading.
Maybe Never follows protagonist Sunny Blackfox and Judd Jackson, two very different people in a small town, and both outcasts in different ways. Sunny is counting down the days till she can get out her town. She feels alone and all she wants to do is get away. Judd has had his life turned on his head and he doesn’t know what to make of it. He has lost all his friends and the town has turned their back on his family. He feels alone and all he wants to do is leave.
When Sunny and Judd come are trust together for a school assessment things start to change and before they know, they are leaning on each other and maybe they don’t feel so alone anymore – but hey, life is never that easy.
Sunny was an interesting protagonist. Like most contemporary YA novel she is the outcast. But, on this occasion I really enjoy it. I loved Sunny’s determination and her fight to get out of this town. She works so hard and has to deal with so much, and yet she is so strong.
Judd was harder to like. At times he was quite judgemental and in a sense, I understand why in a way – but it could hurt some people. Judd has gone from top shot – to someone who those people pick on. He has lost everything and it’s hurting him, even if he doesn’t admit it. He has no friends, so when he starts talking to Sunny there is this instant connection.
The romance in Maybe Never was a hit and miss for me. I really enjoyed parts of it and then there were things that just didn’t sit right. Firstly, I didn’t like how fast it moved or how fast it seemed to move. In saying that, I loved how natural the romance is, how they fall so easily with each other.
There wasn't many good friendships in Maybe Never and that did make me dislike the book more. I like good friendships and it just lacked. I wanted something that Sunny and Judd can hold onto, but it fell through. Although they find friendship with one another – it just wasn’t the same for me.
I also didn’t like that there was too much drama. I felt that I was going in circles. Something would be resolved and then bang, another thing comes their way. It was a never ending cycle and I just wanted to take a breath for a while.
One thing that made me really enjoy the book was the diversity. Firstly, just let me say, I don’t know how well it was done, so I could be totally wrong here. Maybe Never features a Native American protagonist. I don’t know if Sunny is half Native American or not, it wasn’t exactly clear on that account. But her father is Native American and I really enjoy that aspect of the book. Judd’s father is also transgender. There is a lot of hate towards his family because of this and it’s heartbreaking. The only thing that did tick me off was that we didn’t know if the father was transgender or just dressed as drag. It was kind of hinted at times. But, didn’t really get explained until the end.
Overall, Maybe Never is an okay read. It’s not going to be forever and I won’t recommend for everyone. But, I will say that if you enjoy contemporary and like to see something a little different then this book is for you. Maybe Never explores the notion of first love, friendship, family and finding yourself. It’s about trying to fit in where you don’t really belong and then learning to stand on your own. It’s an adventure with a cute romance and hard cutting issues.
