Review: Never Goodbye by Kerri Williams
If you had one chance to be with your soul mate, would you fight for it?
Sometimes the hardest fight isn’t finding love, sometimes its fighting against the ticking clock of your life.
Stalked by the shadow of a foreboding disease, seventeen year old, Harper Kennedy finds herself starting a new life in Albany Missouri. With a ticking time bomb, a wall of quotes, a shell of a father and a brother who has no one else, Harper tries to get life in order for those she may be leaving behind.
But fate is cruel when it delivers temptation in the form of Vaun Campbell into her life; Vaun who is kind and sweet and completely out of her league on so many levels. How can Harper find love only to have it ripped away so soon? How can she put Vaun, who has faced more than his own fair share of loss and grief in the past, through all that again?
…How can she not?
Vaun Campbell has been to hell and back again after losing his mother. He has seen the way disease destroys the ones he loves…has seen them fade before his eyes. He never thought he’d find someone to bring the sunshine back to his life until he laid eyes on Harper; the graceful girl he watched float across the dance floor, who stole a little piece of his heart forever.
So Harper must fight for more than just her life, she must fight for her little brother, her father and for Vaun; who promises her a future.
So many feelings, that is how I sum up this book. Harper and Vaun are perfect, simply perfect. Harper, she is the definition of strong and resilient. She has been dealt a rough hand and its impressive that she doesn’t give up, she continues to fight. There were moments when I could have cried along with Harper, I take that back, there were moments when I was crying along with her. Her pain was tangible and I could feel it to my very core.
Then there is Vaun, I feel so bad for this broken, hurt boy who is putting on a show for everyone around him. He acts like a tough guy but when Harper breaks through his wall, I could have melted into a pool of sappy goo. I could relate to both characters. I could feel their pain but most of all I could feel there determination. The only thing I did not like was the book wrapped up too quickly and I wanted more, but I guess thats not a bad thing. I absolutely loved that the chapters start with a famous quote. It warms my heart that Kerri took enough time to seek out relevant quotes and I will definitely pick up the next book In the Albany Boys series.
