The Never Vows – Contemporary Young Adult. Dual POV
Listen, Slowly + Anna and the French Kiss
17-year-old Korah Richards wants a normal life in one home, one city, and one country–unlike her globe-hopping, activist, American diplomat parents. To ensure never becoming like them, Korah writes a list of Never Vows. But her plans are ruined when she’s forced to go to America for her senior year of high school where a dreaded senior project — and an American boy named Jude change everything.
18-year-old culinary talent, Jude, does not do “close.” He hasn’t since his dad snapped. His dream to be a chef is the last thing holding him together, until he almost loses that too. The pain of being the child of an alcoholic parent pushes him to confess to Korah, a girl who will soon leave the country and take his secrets with him. He thought he had his feelings under control, until he develops some for Korah.
