Bright Before Sunrise

Author: Tiffany Schmidt   
Publisher: Walker
Release Date: February 18, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When Jonah is forced to move from Hamilton to Cross Pointe for the second half of his senior year, "miserable" doesn't even begin to cover it. He feels like the doggy-bag from his mother's first marriage and everything else about her new life—with a new husband, new home and a new baby—is an upgrade. The people at Cross Pointe High School are pretentious and privileged—and worst of all is Brighton Waterford, the embodiment of all things superficial and popular. Jonah’s girlfriend, Carly, is his last tie to what feels real... until she breaks up with him.

For Brighton, every day is a gauntlet of demands and expectations. Since her father died, she’s relied on one coping method: smile big and pretend to be fine. It may have kept her family together, but she has no clue how to handle how she's really feeling. Today is the anniversary of his death and cracks are beginning to show. The last thing she needs is the new kid telling her how much he dislikes her for no reason she can understand. She's determined to change his mind, and when they're stuck together for the night, she finally gets her chance.

Jonah hates her at 3p.m., but how will he feel at 3 a.m.?

One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.

Why I'm Excited:

I love books that take place in a single day (or night). And I love dueling viewpoints. And I love YA contemporary romance. And I love this cover with its huge moon. Overall, this sounds like just the book for me.

  2. If you like books that take place in a day, have you seen the TV show 24? I used to watch that with my parents all the time.

    2. No I haven't. Hard to believe it would with Jack being a lot older.
