Lolo’s memories aren’t what they used to be. What’s real? What’s just dream? She can’t say, but she’s sure there used to be more. Who are these Caretakers? Where’s her family, her sister? What happened to the world? So many questions. Time to find answers.
From the Back Cover
Words. Memory. Identity. They came. And they took away our story. And they rewrote everything: all minds, all lives, all history. Everyone forgot.
But in this now, Lolo must reclaim her stolen words–her stolen family–from the silent Caretakers. She must call out to all rapt children, “This world is hell. Let’s run.” When the words needed are forgotten, lying unknown, when memories flit like smoke, how can she recover what is lost? She must. To live in this nightmare without a story would be too much to bear.
NEVER NOW ALWAYS is a weird sci-fi novella that explores how the stories we tell about ourselves shape us and those around us. It’s a chilling and thoughtful look at the thin line between memory and dream and the drive to find family
This is the first book I have read by this author and let me tell you, she blew me away.
Never Now Always is a very touching story about Lolo. She is having a hard time remembering, well, anything. The past, the present, everything seems so faded. She is determined to find out the answers to the questions she has. The thing is, will what she reveals be what wanted?
This story was touching and very captivating. Desirina gives great detail and leaves no stone unturned. The questions that piled up in my mind were all answered by the time I hit the last page. All I can say is hang onto your hats because this is one intense ride!
