Never Saw You Coming by Erin Hahn

“Erin Hahn knows how to write real life flesh and blood characters who you want to read over and over again; Never Saw You Coming is just that, a book with beautifully genuinely flawed teenage characters that you can’t resist to admire and want on your bookshelf.”

The Story

From the Publisher:

Raised by conservative parents, 18-year-old Meg Hennessey finds out her entire childhood was a lie. Meg travels north to meet her biological fathers family. A family she didn’t even know existed.

While there, she meets Micah Allen, a former pastor’s kid whose dad ended up in prison. Leaving Micah with his own complicated relationship about the church. The clock is ticking on Pastor Allen’s probation hearing and Micah, now 19, feels the pressure to forgive – even when he can’t possibly forget.

As Meg and Micah grow closer, they must confront the heavy fluttering of first love and all the complications it brings. Together, they must navigate the sometimes-painful process of cutting ties with childhood beliefs as they build toward something truer and straight from the heart.

My Review: Never Saw You Coming

A heartfelt book with a fixed beating pulse, readers will be besotted by Meg and Micah burgeoning relationship from the very first page.

If you loved More Than Maybe you’ll enjoy one of the side characters having their own book. Where Meg transforms page after page realizing who she wants to be and how she’ll be the one to determine the shape of her religion. For those teenagers who question or struggle with their Christian faith, Hahn thoughtfully creates a space for that very conversation.

Even if the Christian religious aspects of the book is not for you, Never Saw You Coming has Hahn’s hallmark romance that will have you aching for more. Meg and Micah are adorable, possibly as cute as Vada and Luke.

One More Thought

Further, I love how Hahn writes teenagers into fruition. Like Becky Albertalli, she has this way of crafting people who feel like someone you know or people you want to get to know. It’s a skill that I think makes a book more memorable. When days, weeks, or months go by, you can still remember the characters: their voices and the shape of their being a long while after you’ve closed the book.

Happy Reading ̴ Cece
