Blog Tour: Between Now & Never by Laura Johnston Giveaway $ 50 Amazon or Paypal cash


Between Now and Never by Laura Johnston
Buh boom, buh boom.
My heart thrusts with a force that takes me by surprise. Telling me something I don’t understand. A splitting pain, a longing to slip back under. They tell me I was in a hit-and-run, but I can’t remember what happened that night. All I know is that I woke up with pictures in my pocket, a card from one of those photo booths in the mall. And I’m in the pictures. Cody Rush. Me and…
Her brother was there that night, and my dad, the FBI agent, was the one who put her mom behind bars. What’s the connection? And why won’t Julianna talk to me now? Somehow, she holds the key to it all, and getting close–real close—to her for the answers I need will be no hardship at all…

My review: Between Now & Never by Laura Johnston

4 stars

It was easy to get involved with the characters.  I wanted to keep reading when the book was over. I wanted to see more of there lives. Between Now & Never is told through two different eyes.

Cody Rush a basketball player.  It is the summer before his senior year and his family had just moved into town.  He has met some local jocks. He is involved in a hit and run accident that has left him with no knowledge of the night he was hit.  But he has photos of a girl with him in his pocket.

Julianna's family life is falling apart.  Her mother is in jail for two years.  Her brother is also a senior this year and has had a drug problem. Her father a artist.

Cody hires Julianna to help him with his art classes.  He also wants to know what happened the night he was run over what part did Julianna have in the night.

Cody and Julianna start becoming friends.  No one wants that.

The drama, the mystery was okay. The weak problem I had was with Cody and his father. They were close but Cody doesn't go to his father when his memory comes back.  They don't say much about the accident and case. Cody's father is a FBI Agent who arrested Julianna's mother.

This is a clean read.

I would read more books by Laura Johnston in the future.

I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Kensington Books.  In return I agreed to give honest review and be part of Between Now & Never's book tour.
