Smetana's gorgeous writing and heartfelt storytelling soar in THE MIDNIGHTS. The novel follows Susannah, a seventeen-year old who has music thriving in her bones, who's uprooted from her LA home and moved to Orange County with her mother after experiencing a monumental loss. The passages about grief and striving to find answers are heartbreakingly realistic and thoughtful, and Smentana's masterful plot is effortlessly captivating. It's the kind of coming-of-age story that settles in your heart and doesn't let go. You'll absolutely want to keep your eye out for this one in 2018.
