The Twelfth of Never (2014)

The Twelfth of Never

Presley was smart, but she couldn't handle pressure. the moment she felt the stress, she started alphabetizing. her mind would compulsively sorted out the letters. because of that, she constantly tried to stay out of the spotlight. however, her mom who was crazy over Elvis, was her school secretary. despite how the students teased Presley about her name and Elvis, her mom refused to let anyone interfered with her adoration towards the king. in the meanwhile, Presley's sister, Linda was about to give up custody of her 3-year-old child, Luke, whom Presley couldn't bear living apart with.

i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the book was an awesome read, which i easily finished in one sitting. despite the unattractive cover, i was more than pleased to have requested for a copy of it. it brought me high and low following Presley's emotions, her stressful reaction highly and dangerously contagious. there were two plots, one focusing on Presley being involved in the committee in school, pulling her more and more under the spotlight; while another focused on the love and forced separation she had to endured with her nephew. i couldn't remembered tearing up for a book in quite a while. i fell so in love with Presley going through the pages, now that i finished the book it was somewhat sad to leave her behind. i wanted to learn so much more about her awkward life, her seemingly possible relationship with Conrad, even a few more goosebumps moments with Luke would be awesome. however, being a standalone book, i was thoroughly satisfied with the experience and would definitely start keeping my eyes open for the author.
