Sixteen-year-old Wren Sullivan can read minds, but when she moves from Southern California to Portland, Oregon, she meets Ever Casey—the one person whose mind is off-limits. Wren does know one thing about her mysterious classmate: he has a dark secret to hide. And the closer she gets to learning the truth, the more dangerous it is for her and everyone around her.

Overall Thoughts:
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. Don't let the cover fool you!

For Ever is about 16 year old Wren Sullivan who just moved from California to Portland, Oregon with her mom. When she arrives, she's not surprised that she can read the minds of anyone that she makes eye contact with because she's been doing that for most of her life. But what she is surprised to find out is that a guy named Ever Casey is completely silent to her. She can't hear his thoughts, instead it appears that like he can hear hers instead.

When Wren is constantly put in danger, it seems like Wren is always there to save her but then goes right back to acting like the unemotional, stoic jerk that he was before. But what happens when Wren comes to the startling conclusion that he may not be completely human?

What I liked about this book:
I, personally, found a lot of myself in Wren. She's a little more negative than I am, but we're both pretty shy and laid-back people who don't like to be the center of attention so I liked that I could kind of relate to her.

What I disliked about this book:
For the first half of the book, Wren remains a complete enigma, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It was just drying me insane, trying to figure out what he is or what he could really do. All is revealed though!

Verdict:
This is a really easy read, with a completely novel plot!
