Together at Midnight
Jennifer Castle’s (What Happens Now, 2016) latest novel is a romantic, thought-provoking tale of human connection and how we find and make our place in the world. High school senior Kendall has just returned from a life-changing semester in Europe, and Max is in the midst of an aimless gap year before college. Their paths cross in New York City when they witness a near-fatal bus accident. Because the teens feel guilty for not intervening and preventing the crash, they agree to complete seven random acts of kindness between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The challenge pulls Kendall and Max together and they can't deny their growing bond even though they both have other romantic entanglements and uncertain futures.
