CHARLOTTE Hubbard dreams about falling in love on a daily basis, but she’s long rejected the idea that someone would ever be interested in an overweight, unappealing girl like her; an opinion that is also shared by her way more popular and attractive sister who seems to enjoy pointing out Charlotte’s flaws as much as possible.
AND . . .
Then there’s MILES Fiester, who thinks that making the basketball team is as impossible as getting the girl he’s liked since grade school to notice him. He’d have more luck getting his deadbeat dad to visit him for a day.
But, in the first few weeks of high school, Charlotte and Miles come to discover that life is unpredictable, love happens when you least expect it, and there’s always a first for everything.
First, Last, and Always is the story of two best friends dealing with the complexities of being a teenager—it’s about first loves, lasting friendships, and remembering that family will always be there, whether you realize it or not.
I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I struggled a little with this book at the start, I could not work out where it was going and it felt a little bland to me. But as I got into it I fell in love. I fell in love the characters, especially Miles, he was so sweet and obviously cared deeply for his friends.
I am not really that big on romance but I enjoyed this one. It helped that there was other stuff to keep me interested. I loved that the story was told from both Charlotte and Miles’ point of view.
I was worried about what was going on with Charlotte’s sister, I guessed completely wrong.
I found the story fun, believable and exciting. I would read more from this author and recommend this to anyone who likes YA books.
