This voice-driven coming-of-age YA novel is perfect for fans of Katie Cotugno and Playlist for the Dead.
Susannah Hayes has never been in the spotlight, but she dreams of following her father, a former rock star, onto the stage. As senior year begins, she’s more interested in composing impressive chord progressions than college essays, certain that if she writes the perfect song, her father might finally look up from the past long enough to see her. But when he dies unexpectedly, her dreams—and her reality—shatter.
While Susannah struggles with grief, her mother uproots them to a new city. There, Susannah realizes she can reinvent herself however she wants: a confident singer-songwriter, member of a hip band, embraced by an effortlessly cool best friend. But Susannah is not the only one keeping secrets, and soon, harsh revelations threaten to unravel her life once again.
Set against the scintillating landscape of Southern California, The Midnights is an evocative coming-of-age debut about loss, creativity, and finding your voice while you’re still finding yourself.
Hello lovely and wonderful people😃 I hope you are all having an amazing and wonderful day ❤️
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating and for today we picked a book that since we first saw the cover and read the synopsis we immediately added it to our MUST READ BOOKS.
That book is *drum roll* The Midnights by Sarah Nicole Smetana 🌙 💫 ⭐️
We are huge fans of contemporary stories and when we first saw this book we immediately added it to our TBR. It sounds like a cute read PLUS THAT COVER!!! It’s stunning, we really can’t wait to read this book and meet Susannah Hayes! We love music too so the fact that the MC writes story and that her dad was a superstar made us want to read it even more!
