Rule #10: Never date your best friend.
Well, some rules are meant to be broken.
Best friends Dave and Julia have spent their high school years living by their carefully crafted Never List — a list of rules they created to make sure they never become high school clichés. But as graduation approaches, Dave is shocked when Julia decides that they should now do everything on the list, from skinny dipping (Rule #6) to road-tripping (Rule #9). But what happens when Julia finds out that Dave has been breaking Rule #8 (never pine silently for someone for the entirety of high school) for years? Can their friendship survive the ultimate cliché and turn into something…more?
From the acclaimed author of Let’s Get Lost and North of Happy, comes a story of what can happen in those final days of high school, when you let go of who you are and take a chance on who you might be.
