Anica Mrose Rissi

Always Forever Maybe

When Betts meets Aiden at the candy store where she works, their connection is like a sugar rush to the heart. Even before they share a first kiss, she already knows the two of them are destined to become an “us.” Betts has only ever kept one secret from her best friend, Jo, but suddenly there’s a long list of things she won’t tell her, things Jo wouldn’t understand. Because Jo doesn’t see how good Aiden is for Betts. She finds him needy. Possessive. Controlling. She’s wrong. With a love like this, nothing else matters. In her forceful YA debut, Anica Mrose Rissi explores the depths and boundaries of intense friendships and intoxicating love, with astonishing insight and tender wit.
