Spotlight on: Meet me at Midnight by Jessica Pennington

They have a love-hate relationship with summer.

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year—in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic yet.

But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note—Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy—the woman who kicked them out.

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.

Meet me at Midnight is one of the many books publishing during this time of social distancing and lockdown.

I came across this one when it’s author tweeted about it. Intrigued I looked it up and it sounds like just the type of YA book I would have loved as a teen.

In these uncertain times a bit of teenage-years reading sounds like just the thing so it’s been promptly added to my tbr.

I read a reasonable amount of YA but not often of the type I actually read as a teen. They are usually the genres I read now, so I’m looking forward to branching out a little.

Meet me at Midnight is released 7th April 2020.
