  1. Just a quick question.
    I’m currently reading Never Never- but I’m slightly confused.
    Is the 2023 new never never that came out in Feb- is that the 3 books in one?
    I am in the UK so I couldn’t get Never Never part one that came out in 2015 on kindle. However I have just sampled part one in audiobook and it sounds like the first chapter of never never 2023.. sorry if this is a dim question- it’s just confused me slightly.
    Look forward to hearing from you
