Never have I ever is a truth or dare game played in a group. The author of Never Have I Ever takes this game to new levels. Never Have I Ever starts in a quiet suburban neighborhood where everyone is set in their ways. Amy Whey is a happily married stepmom of a teenager living in this neighborhood. Her best friend is Charlotte, who is also a happily married mom who lives by Amy’s house.
The women on the block have a book club organizer by Charlotte. Amy is hosting a book club at her home. A new neighbor shows up on this night uninvited. She goes by the name Roux. Roux manages to derail the book club by taking center stage. Roux is a very pushy person. By the end of the night, some neighbors are very drunk, others very put off by her intrusion.
Roux and her teenage son are renting a house in this neighborhood for a reason no one is aware of. Roux is a mystery. She shows her true colors quickly. Roux has developed a skill few have. She specializes in finding out and exploiting secrets.
I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. There are unpredictable twists and turns. Roux is a well-written character. Every time I thought I had Roux and the plot figured out, another layer of depravity added. Never Have I Ever is a book with an unfathomable ending.
