Synopsis

Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt

Jonah and Brighton are about to have the most awkwardly awful night of their lives. For Jonah, every aspect of his new life reminds him of what he has had to give up. All he wants is to be left alone. Brighton is popular, pretty, and always there to help anyone ...but has no idea of what she wants for herself. Her seemingly perfect life is marred only by Jonah, the one person who won't give her the time of day, but also makes her feel, well, something. So when they are repeatedly thrown together over the course of one night, anything can-and does-happen. Told in alternating chapters, this poignant, beautiful novel's energy and tension, amidst the humor and romance, builds to a new beginning of self-acceptance and hope.

Reviews

This book renewed my faith in fate and made me remember it only takes one night to change your life forever. -- Jen Calonita, author of the Secrets of My Hollywood Life and the Belles series If you ever had that one wildly perfect night, you'll love this book. If you never did, you'll love it even more. -- Diana Peterfreund, author of Across a Star-Swept Sea and For Darkness Shows the Stars Sparks are flying in this opposites-attract romance. Kirkus Reviews Easy flowing teen banter, party scenes, volatile breakups, and a touching awakening of love also help deliver a worthwhile teen read and library purchase ... Brighton and Jonah are stars and readers will want more. VOYA Fans of the one-crazy-night romance genre will love the budding tenderness and passion between the teens. Recommend to readers who like a lighthearted love story with serious undertones, such as those by Lauren Myracle or Deb Caletti. Booklist The book tells the story of how that first love can help you see the good and the bad through new eyes and launch you out of yourself toward becoming someone that you like better. BCCB This book will appeal to readers who enjoy realistic fiction and love stories. School Library Journal This is Schmidt's first novel, and it is a noteworthy one ... a moving and inspirational novel that teen girls will love. -- VOYA on Send Me a Sign Compelling; it has heartbreak and tragedy, but hope as well. -- School Library Journal on Send Me a Sign Schmidt's heroine believably vacillates between stoicism and indignation as she learns to rely less on superstitious signals to predict her future and more on herself. -- Publishers Weekly on Send Me a Sign
