My name is Katie Heaney, and I'm a Bermuda Triangle. People have interesting reactions when you tell them you've never had a boyfriend and you're. In her new book NEVER HAVE I. EVER: My Life (So Far) Without a Date, the year-old shares her dating (or non-dating) experiences as she attempts to find. Katie Heaney recounts a brutally honest. Never Have I Ever: My Life (So Far) Without A Date is her true account of the dating near misses.
Skip navigation! Twenty-five years old. No relationship. No dates. Change the number in that equation, and we've probably all been there, right? But, what if we were talking about no dates at least no second dates or relationships, ever? That's a little bit tougher.
We get sections of her journals, her funny retelling of her most embarrassing moments and she bravely tells us about the times that she cried.
It starts off ridiculous and so true with first crushes on Jonathan Taylor Thomas right! This first section is charming and adorable, because I think we all remember the days of kindergarten boyfriends, fifth grade loves of our lives and the boys who were more interested in video games than girls, but we were all interested in them. Then it gets adult, and we see how little Katie understands about the opposite sex and what it takes to gain their favor. I think a lot of us, especially the inexperienced us, have turned our crushes and love interests into false gods.
The times we know very little about them and have already built our entire romantic futures and married lives on a single hello or a polite smile. What I think the true heart of this story is not just Katie and her misadventures with the opposite sex, but her friendships.
The book starts with a description of what makes her different from her best friend and as the book progresses, we meet that best friend and we watch that relationship grow. More, we see how normal, happy and legitimately OK you can be without male attention. I picked this up, because like Katie, never have I ever. Still, I believe this is a book that everyone can enjoy.
What's Inside. Reader Reviews.
Praise "Reading Never Have I Ever is a bit like reliving your most awkward moments -- but in the best way, because this time, the cringeworthy moments are happening to someone else. Anyone who's ever swooned over a boy whose name she didn't even know or overanalyzed a text message from a crush will see herself in Katie Heaney. You'll relate to her frustrations and admire her confidence, and probably wish she was your best friend.
But don't let the breezy language or topic fool you-this is also a brilliant examination of what it means to be a friend, a girl and a human being. The first guy to take Heaney out will be very lucky; in the meantime, we her readers are the lucky ones.
Anyone who has ever fallen in love with a cute stranger on a train, on the street, in class, or at work, will instantly identify with it, and laugh and cringe along with her dating misadventures. But what is most admirable and impressive about this book is how unflinchingly Katie is able to examine herself. As hilariously cutting as she is when describing the male objects of her desire, she's also self-deprecating and introspective.
And the book manages to point towards another oft overlooked great love in a woman's life: A Field Guide. Astute and tremendously witty, Never Have I Ever chronicles the romantic travails well, almost romantic of the very funny Katie Heaney.
