Meet Me at Midnight
Sidney and Asher have known each other for years. Their mothers are best friends from college who still go away with their families to neighboring beach houses each summer. The two months on the lake should be spent lazily relaxing, but Sidney and Asher do not like each other at all. They are civil enough around their parents, but their pranks keep getting bigger and bigger. When the latest prank causes damage to one of the bedrooms, Nadine, the house owner, kicks them out. Sidney and Asher end up sharing the same house and bathroom. When a truce is called to avenge their misfortune against Nadine, something sweet begins to grow between them as they spend time together. But is it enough to get past years of dislike and spite?
Asher is a self-assured kid while Sidney lacks confidence in herself; these characterizations sometimes make the story repetitive. Detailed and dense, this story builds not on action, but rather the development of the main characters. Unfortunately the secondary characters are not as well developed. While not as good as Jessica Pennington’s other novel, Love Songs and Other Lies, this is a good read for those who are waiting for the next Sarah Dessen or Kasie West book.
