Be My Valentine: An Interview with the Guys from Never Forgotten
Moderator: Hi, Everyone. I’m Kelly Risser, the author of the Never Forgotten series, and one of the co-authors of the Fractured Glass anthology. Today, I’m interviewing the two main guys from Never Forgotten, Evan and Kieran. Meara, our leading lady, couldn’t be here today, nor would she want to. She’s tired of playing tug o’war between these two. That means today, we have the boys to ourselves. Let’s get started. First, Evan, why don’t you tell everyone a little about yourself?
Evan: I’m a freshman at Kings College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, studying marine biology. I love hockey, and I’m the captain of my team. My favorite food is pizza. Yeah, I guess that’s about it.
Kieran: (fakes a yawn) Bo-ring!
Evan: Yeah? Why don’t you introduce yourself then, Mr. Excitement?
Kieran: Don’t mind if I do. Kieran Voda. I live on the California coast—love me some sun and surf. I’ve got mean dance moves and I’m not afraid to use them. I traveled a bit, lived longer than I look like, and in my spare time, I head my father’s guard.
Evan: (snickers) What are you? Royalty or something?
Kieran: (gives Evan a pointed look) Something.
Moderator: Okay, guys. Thanks for that enlightening intro. How about if we move on? Kieran, I’ll start with you this time. Give me one word to describe yourself.
Kieran: (flashes teeth and flexes muscles) Dangerous.
Moderator: How about you, Evan?
Evan: (glares at Kieran) Competitive.
Moderator: Great. Well, Valentine’s Day is approaching, and I’m sure all of the women out there would like to know, what’s your idea of a romantic date?
Evan: We’d go out to a nice restaurant, then go for a star lit walk afterwards. (shrugs) Anything would be romantic with the one you love.
Kieran: Dude, that is so sappy.
Evan: Yeah? (scowls) What would you do?
Kieran: Picnic by the ocean with a moonlit swim afterwards.
Evan: Hmph. Sounds cold.
Kieran: (grins) I won't have any problem keeping my date warm.
Moderator: Well, I think that’s all the time we have left today. Best to get these guys away from each other anyway. Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter. One lucky winner will receive Kieran’s Valentine pack and another will get Evan’s. Good luck!

Risser keeps her focus on the little details of Meara’s everyday life, lending the book a nice, homey charm. The real heart of the book is Meara’s emotional struggle with her mother’s illness and her first romance. ~Kirkus Reviews
How can one day go so very wrong? One minute Meara Quinn is making plans for how she will spend the summer before her senior year and the next she's finding out that her mother's cancer has returned and they are moving away from the only home she's ever known.
Now every day is a struggle as Meara is trying to cope with her mother's illness, being forced to move to another country to live with grandparents—whom she thought disowned her mother—and having weird visions of a father who was absent her entire life. Top it all off with one whopping secret that everyone seems bent on keeping from her, and Meara has the perfect ingredients for a major melt down.
The only things keeping her from coming unglued are some new friends and Evan—the son of her mother's childhood friend—who seems to know Meara almost better than she knows herself.
Together with Evan and her friends, Meara embarks on a new journey to unlock the secrets that will not only tell Meara who she is, but what she is.
