Summary (from Goodreads):

Like It Never Happened is an original novel with characters who are actors. The main character is relatable and strong and has a great bond with her older sister. This book is so different from anything I’ve ever read!

I love the use of drama in Like It Never Happened. The main characters are all actors and love performing together. They never let what happens on stage bleed into their personal lives and vow never to date each other. However, this is where the true drama begins. I have only read a handful of theatre books, so this one was definitely a big change for me. I’m glad I picked this one up and went out of my comfort zone a bit.

Rebecca is the perfect main character for Like It Never Happened. She is relatable to anyone who is a fellow actor and she is quite flawed. She has a bad reputation at school due to a false rumour, but doesn’t let it bring her down. Rebecca is a very strong character who demonstrates what it’s like to be a teenager very well.

One of the themes in Like It Never Happened is family. I actually found there was more family in the book than romance. Rebecca’s sister, Mary, comes to visit and announces that she is getting married. The sisters bond more and it’s very sweet reading about them. Who doesn’t enjoy a good sister book?

Like It Never Happened is an enjoyable theatrical novel. It stars a relatable main character and contains a bond between sisters. I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a unique summer read.
