Book Review: Never Never Part 2 by Colleen Hoover

Jacque's Review:

This is actually a continuation of the same story that began in Never Never Part 1.  In the previous book we learned that Silas and Charlie have been losing their memories every 48 hours. They have no idea why this happening or how to stop the cycle.  They have been gathering information about themselves and keeping meticulous notes to use as a starting point each time the clock resets. 

At the end of Part 1, Charlie leaves in a taxi and Silas heads home on his own. We pick up pretty much where we left off and discover Charlie never returned home.  When Silas wakes up, the first note that he sees is that Charlie left in a taxi and he needs to find her.  She doesn't have any notes with her and will not have a clue who or where she is. 

The story alternates between the two, so we can follow both of their struggles.  Silas gathers quite a bit of additional information and may be getting closer to the source of their problem.  Charlie on the other hand, was basically left struggling to survive the better part of this installment.  The two ultimately reunite, but are nearing the end of their 48 hours again.  Silas finally tells his brother what has been happening, so they will have some additional support in the final part of this story.  

These are very fast and highly entertaining stories with a great mix of characters. I don't think Silas or Charlie were the nicest people in their previous lives, but they have come a long way while dealing with their struggles.  They have been best friends since a very young age and were the perfect couple until their fathers' business problems tore them apart. The families now hate each other and the two were continuing a Romeo and Juliet type of forbidden romance until the pressure ultimately became too much. They were spiraling out of control until the day they both lost their memories.  By working together and getting to the bottom of their personal and family issues, they may finally be able to achieve their happily ever after.
