Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. But in the short time he has left there’s one thing he can do: He can try to help the people he loves live-even though he never will.
It’s probably hopeless.
But he has to try.

What people are saying about Never Eighteen:
“It is easy to connect with Austin because his journey is honorable…..Bostic’s narrative is concise, chapters are short, and the story never lags. Her story is sad, but it is real and pulls no punches.” ~ VOYA
“Bostic writes this graceful, affecting tale without pretension…Perhaps it’s because of that simplicity that the story concludes with such a powerful emotional punch.” ~ Kirkus
“I would have followed these characters anywhere, and by the end of the book wasn’t ready to let them go.” ~ R.A. Nelson, author of Teach Me
“Megan Bostic has a classic weepie on her hands. She keeps the pages turning, but it’s your job to keep tissues at hand!” ~ Brent Hartinger, author of Geography Club and Shadow Walkers
