Engaging, witty characters + the beach = fun summer romance

Summary:


With their families vacationing together every year since they were 13, Sidney Walters and Asher Marin have built quite an interesting relationship. After a perfect first summer, something happened that changed the course of their trips from relaxing to full-blown prank wars. Since that summer, each sleeps with one eye open, never knowing what trick the other is going to pull. Now, it is the last summer before they head to college, Sidney and Asher are competitive swimmers and will be on the same team in college. With this potentially being their last vacation ever, Sidney and Asher pull out all the stops on the prank war. So far that their families are evicted from their vacation homes and forced fo find alternative locations. That was enough for the two to call a truce, promising to end the pranks and just have a normal summer with each other. What’s awkward at first turns into a relationship that grows stronger every day.


BTSYA / Teen Reader (17):
Meet Me At Midnight is a super fun, enjoyable read definitely worth your time. It is a perfect summer read if you just need a nice escape. The well-written characters are interesting, and each has quirks that make you love them even more. The connection between Asher and Sidney is visible throughout the novel, and it makes you want to keep reading just to see them take their relationship to the next step. These characters have such great wit that all of their interactions are humorous and you never want them to end.

Pre-teens and teens will find this a perfect fit! This novel is perfectly fit for pre-teens ages 12 and older. Nothing too graphic happens in the book that would cause anyone to feel overwhelmed. There are a few kissing scenes, but that’s all that really happens. Meet Me at Midnightwould make a perfect gift for any teenager who loves a good romance. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to read a light, enjoyable, and well-written romance.
