Today I have some info on a new release that I am DYING to get my hands on! Doesn’t this book sound awesome?!
What is The Midnight Society?
Here’s an excerpt:
“Eve threw her arms around Cate with so much force, they collided with a group of students from their school standing at the bus stop. I rushed to find you the second I heard. Are you okay?Cate disentangled herself from her friend’s overzealous bear hug. What are you talking about?The mobile phones from the nearby students beeped in quick succession and they looked from their glowing screens to Cate. Eve’s eye’s widened, and she snatched Cate’s phone from her hand just as it beeped. Before you read that text, remember I may be your only friend, but I’m an awesome one. It’s not like you needa boyfriend. You’ve got me.Unfortunately, that wasn’t true. Cate’s witness protection rules specifically stated she needed a boyfriend. Her breath, mixed with the freezing air, created smoke as she exhaled. Let me see the text.Prepare yourself. Her friend squeezed her eyes shut and held the phone out for Cate to read the new text message.”
