Like Never and Always

Ann Aguirre. Tor Teen, $17.99 (336p) ISBN 978-0-7653-9758-4
High school junior Olivia “Liv” Burnham is out for a night of fun with her best friend Morgan in Renton, Ga., when a car accident changes everything. Liv wakes up hospitalized and in Morgan’s body, her own body long since buried. Living Morgan’s life appears to be the only way to stay out of a psychiatric unit, yet Liv quickly realizes just how much Morgan kept secret—and the dangerous trouble Morgan was courting while trying to investigate her mother’s death. Liv seeks out some answers while navigating the complicated particulars of life in a new body with its own memories and history. Liv also feels torn over her feelings for two brothers—one of whom was Liv’s boyfriend before the crash, the other Morgan’s. This suspenseful science fiction thriller is a fresh take on the standard body-swapping story and comes with a few surprisingly dark twists. Liv’s fearful and emotional reactions to her predicament ring true, and it immediately draws the reader into a tender—but conflicted—romance that tugs at the heartstrings. Ages 13–18. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (July)
