Waiting on Wednesday (#42): Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Publication Date: February 18, 2014

Summary (from Goodreads):

When Jonah is forced to move from Hamilton to Cross Pointe for the second half of his senior year, "miserable" doesn't even begin to cover it. He feels like the doggy-bag from his mother's first marriage and everything else about her new life—with a new husband, new home and a new baby—is an upgrade. The people at Cross Pointe High School are pretentious and privileged—and worst of all is Brighton Waterford, the embodiment of all things superficial and popular. Jonah’s girlfriend, Carly, is his last tie to what feels real... until she breaks up with him. 

For Brighton, every day is a gauntlet of demands and expectations. Since her father died, she’s relied on one coping method: smile big and pretend to be fine. It may have kept her family together, but she has no clue how to handle how she's really feeling. Today is the anniversary of his death and cracks are beginning to show. The last thing she needs is the new kid telling her how much he dislikes her for no reason she can understand. She's determined to change his mind, and when they're stuck together for the night, she finally gets her chance. 

Jonah hates her at 3 p.m., but how will he feel at 3 a.m.? 

One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.



YAY FOR TIFFANY SCHMIDT! And also, this book sounds awesome. I have a new-found love for contemporary novels :)

  1. I haven't heard of the Bright Before Sunrise but it sounds pretty cool. Jonah sounds a little emo, but understandably so, and it sounds like one of those things that's either completely amazing or awful.

  4. 'Bright Before Sunrise' sounds interesting, but I have worst luck with picking contemporary novels so I will wait for a couple of reviews to come.

  10. I don't usually love contemporaries, but lately I've been having more luck with them and this one has me very curious. Those two could be fantastic characters if developed well, so I might have to give this a shot. Hopefully it turns out to be great! :)
