The Never List
The Never List by Koethi Zan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jennifer and Sarah have a list of things they should never do which they drew up as teenagers after a terrible accident. A great premise for a book where all these fears and phobias are explored and explained. Sadly, this is not that book. Instead, something even worse befalls them and we hear all about that? Nope, we meet Sarah in the aftermath of the incident and this is the story of her tryng to make sense of what happened. The thing is, that’s the bit (most) of the book I wasn’t really interested in. I don’t like Sarah or Tracy as characters. Of course, they are both supposed to be completely mixed up and in a mess but this does not make the story easy to follow or even very coherent in some places. A comparison to “Gone Girl” doesn’t do much for me, since I thought that was a horrible book, but sadly this is horrid in the same vein so it doesn’t draw me to the characters particularly. On the other hand, a book about the never list, that I would like to read!
