Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: April 7th 2020 by Tor Teen

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 summer 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.


When I first started reading Meet Me at Midnight, I had a hard time. Not because of anything the book was doing wrong, but because it was difficult to separate what was happening in the story with what is happening in the real world. It's like suddenly we're the dystopia and reading contemporary novels feels different. Am I the only one?

Anyway, eventually Meet Me at Midnight pulled me in and I was able to momentarily forget what was going on around us. Which is kind of the whole point, right? This book was absolutely adorable. If going to beaches was a thing right now, it would be the perfect beach read. 

Summer beach vacations, enemies to romance, witty banter, what's not to love? Definitely recommend this one, especially if you just need to escape for a little bit. <3
