A timely and heart-wrenching love story set in a dark dystopian world with echoes of Never Let Me Go and adult as well as teen appeal.
Arthur is dying. He must transition within the next four weeks or face permanent memory loss.
Alba is studying, preparing to impress the Mentors in an all-important interview. If she’s picked as the next Apprentice she will be reunited with her best friend and cross the Wilderness for the first time.
They meet and everything comes together.
And everything falls apart.

We Go On Forever by Sarah Govett was so good. I raced through it, and couldn’t get enough. It was almost impossible to put it down. I was completely swept away.
Sarah Govett has crafted some incredible characters. Particularly Alba and Arthur. I found the way they navigated this world was very intriguing. I love how character driven this novel was.
This world that was created in this story was so interesting. The idea of swapping bodies was unique. I haven’t read a dystopian novel that was quite like this. And the love story mingled into this plotlinr was excellent. I feel like it unfolded in such a satisfying way.
This book swept me away. It surprised me and I’m really excited about it. Highly recommended!!!
