Blog Tour : Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid + Giveaway

1.       I was in the 2007 NBA All-Star Game. (As a glorified towel boy, but still.)

2.       From third until ninth grade, I had hair past my shoulders, grown out after a friend and I watched the Antonio Banderas film Desperado and decided he was so badass we had to follow suit. What a couple of eight year olds were doing watching Desperado is beyond me.

3.       I have an older brother in the hotel industry in Las Vegas, and a younger sister getting her PhD in clinical psychology in Cincinnati.

4.       I have two tattoos on my left leg, one of them of Calvin and Hobbes.

5.       My girlfriend is an elementary school teacher who has travelled way more than I have.

6.       During my time at UNLV, I worked as a receptionist, a fundraiser, a supervising fundraiser, a basketball team manager, and a writer of pretty bad opinion articles for the school paper.

7.       I’ve been paid to brush my teeth.

8.       I can almost, kind of, not really dunk. But if there were some sort of YA author celebrity all-star team, I would probably make the cut. *brushes dirt off shoulder*

9.       When I was five, I was annoying an older cousin of mine, who made like he was about to chase me. He did not, but I ran anyway, turning over my shoulder to make sure I was getting away and looking forward again just in time to see that the sliding glass door that led to my escape outdoors was closed. I ran right through the glass.

10.   I taught myself how to cook after a summer during college when I flew back home to Mexico City and was stuck indoors because of the rain watching Top Chef. I was struck by the world-changing realization that they could cook themselves amazing things not just when the show was being shot but at any time, and I decided I needed to be able to do the same.

Never Always Sometimes
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: August 4th 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction
Never date your best friend 

Always be original 

Sometimes rules are meant to be broken 

Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids—the ones who sit at the same lunch table every day, dissecting the drama from homeroom and plotting their campaigns for prom king and queen. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they'd never, ever do in high school. 

Some of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never die your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. But Dave has a secret: he's broken rule #8, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It's either that or break rule #10, never date your best friend. Dave has loved Julia for as long as he can remember. 

Julia is beautiful, wild and impetuous. So when she suggests they do every Never on the list, Dave is happy to play along. He even dyes his hair an unfortunate shade of green. It starts as a joke, but then a funny thing happens: Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they've actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love.

Adi Alsaid was born and raised in Mexico City, then studied at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While in class, he mostly read fiction and continuously failed to fill out crossword puzzles, so it's no surprise that after graduating, he did not go into business world but rather packed up his apartment into his car and escaped to the California coastline to become a writer. He's now back in his hometown, where he writes, coaches high school and elementary basketball, and has perfected the art of making every dish he eats or cooks as spicy as possible. In addition to Mexico, he's lived in Tel Aviv, Las Vegas, and Monterey, California. A tingly feeling in his feet tells him more places will eventually be added to the list. Let's Get Lost is his YA debut.
