    • 2 1/2 stars. This is a book that I have immensely mixed feelings on! I will say I did not hate it. It doesn’t perpetrate anything that actively made me want to 1) vomit and 2) throw the book away! [The bar for abuse books is currently underneath the floor.] Buuuuuuuut I also think this is of slightly low actual quality than both of the other abuse books I have despised recently. And the ending? The ending is a total mess.Let’s discuss. ✔️The transition to abuse is done really well. There [...]


    • Unfortunately, this is probably one of my least favorite books I’ve read in awhile. I guess that’s what happens when you request random books on Netgalley and Edelweiss without knowing what they are.This book follows a teenage girl as she enters her first romantic relationship, which quickly turns abusive. There honestly isn’t much more than that.So why did this book not only not work for me, but really bother me?Writing style is probably the main issue I had with this. The author seems to [...]


    • Quite The Novel Idea ~ Novel Ink Wow, okay so this was kind of intense. And it had a lot of themes that hit close to home for me. But honestly? I'm a bit underwhelmed because I didn't really connect to the characters like I hoped I would. I have no idea how to write a proper review for this and it's too early anyway since it doesn't come out until May, I will give you a list of things I thought and things you can expect.• The main character has the same nickname as me, which is Bee, so points [...]


    • Hi, I wrote this book! I'll use this space to share behind-the-scenes peeks and updates that might be of interest. ALWAYS FOREVER MAYBE started with a few lines and rough character sketches scribbled in my notebook on a train going home to NYC in December of 2010. It took almost six years of writing and revising (and revising some more) for the idea to grow into an entire draft, but a couple of those early sentences that I jotted on the train actually made it into the final book, including the o [...]


    • Anica Mrose Rissi tackles a tough issue (abuse in teen dating) in her first foray in to young adult literature and she does it with realistic dialogue, a great cast of characters and just the right amount of humor to balance everything out. I started reading this book on a Sunday evening and stayed up way past my bedtime as I needed to read on -- always a good sign. Despite a busy week at work, I managed to find time to finish the book within a few days because I cared about Betts and wanted to [...]


    • Gripping and powerful, heart-wrenching and brutal, Anica Mrose Rissi's YA debut is a raw and resonant look at the swift downslide from intoxicating to toxic in a teen relationship where emotional manipulation and physical and emotional abuse are the smoke and mirrors masquerading as "love." A necessary exploration of a controlling, abusive relationship--but also of resilient, fierce friendship, and ultimately hope.


    • If you've read the "Anna, Banana" series or "The Teacher's Pet" already, you know that Anica's writing combines humor and thoughtful social commentary in stories that take you by wonderful surprise. Having seen the sweat and energy that she poured into writing this - her first YA title - I know it will be fantastic! I can't wait for the whole world to read it for yourselves. Also worth noting: she's a cool sister :)


    • I tore through this one in just two days. This dialogue-driven, completely whirlwind tale of a romance gone terribly wrong is as gripping as it is important. I love the vivid relationships between the characters--the wondrously warm friendship and the terribly alarming romance are both exquisitely crafted.


    • I love this book. Most of all, the dialogue! Dialogue is tough to write well, but this book nails it. I got totally wrapped up in the cast of true, sweet, supportive, sassy friends. But oh, the romance (and what comes with it). Gripping and well done - this book will be so important for many people. Rissi handles this challenging relationship really elegantly and honestly.


    • The book was great. I don't really know what else to say. This book tackles some tough situations that I don't really see authors addressing. Although I didn't connect with the characters as much as I wanted to, I enjoyed reading this book. Always Forever Maybe covers abusive relationships. The main character Bee (sometimes known as Betts) is quite oblivious to what was happening around her but it was understandable. It portrayed how a teenager can be blinded by love and affection. Aiden's perso [...]


    • Guys, I think this one is important. This is a really excellent novel, and the depiction of an abusive relationship and the difficulty of extricating oneself from it was beautifully done (and, to be honest, sometimes really painful to read). The teenagers in this book are so real and lovely. I found myself feeling pretty fierce in my desire to protect Bee (the YA equivalent to yelling at the people onscreen in a horror movie—DON’T GO IN THERE! Except I don’t usually want to hug people in h [...]


    • A cautionary tale about the alluring vortex of being wanted, where friendship saves the day.After a sweet encounter, straight-laced Betts falls hard for Aiden, a misunderstood rebel with an intense and immediate attraction to Betts. Betts' best friend, the confident and charismatic Jo, may be skeptical of the relationship, but Jo's all cupcakes and crushes--Jo's got everything going for her. Jo just doesn't understand Aiden, and she definitely doesn't get Betts and Aiden's connection. Betts and [...]


    • A heart-wrenching look at a relationship gone wrong. My heart was in my throat reading this—I've had relationships like this, as unfortunately too many other young women have as well. Rissi's portrayal was realistic, with well-drawn characters and a believable plotline. I cried for Bee even as I fell in love with her best friend Jo and Jo's twin brother, Eric. This is a must-read for every young woman: not just because it's well-written, but as a cautionary tale on exactly what to avoid when f [...]


    • Felt a little rushed and unrealistic at times. Interesting storyline that could be more expanded upon.


    • A powerful, haunting, brutally honest debut about a deeply toxic teenage relationship. The depiction of friendship in this book were so, so real. Anica is a YA author to watch!



    • This review is intended for classroom teachers of teens. I think this book would make a good “satellite read” with Romeo and Juliet. It parallels and also contrasts a number of characters and themes in Shakespeare’s tragedy. But one thing I often point out to my students is that the draw that Romeo and Juliet experience is fueled by the enmity between their families. They appeal all the more to each other because the love is forbidden. We don’t know if Juliet is similar to or different f [...]
