In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.

Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him.


My thoughts…

What a great novella. It’s a beautifully written short story about two high school seniors who come from different backgrounds. Way different. I found both Jonah and Stella interesting and I enjoyed slipping into their world. Even though they’ve been aware of each other for years, they’ve never been friends. That all changes in the most unlikely place.

Once I started reading I couldn’t put this one down. It had me experiencing all sorts of emotions. I cried, I got mad, I cried a bit more, and I awe’d a little bit too.

The moral of this story is that people can change. They can stand up for what is right, treat everyone with respect regardless of their background, and live life as a better person.

Brilliant. Loved this one.
