Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt

Release Date: February 18, 2014
Publisher: Walker Children’s

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 3p.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.

Why I’m Waiting
This sounds like such a cute, heartwarming read, does it not?! I absolutely love the sound of this one. New boy hates superficiality, the superficial girl is anything but that, and now they are stuck together for the night? I’m dying to know what happens when these two are forced to be together. And that last line of the summary? Perfect. I am so excited about this book. Also, it comes out on my birthday! May just have to pre-order it as a birthday present for myself 🙂

What are you waiting on this week?

      Ah lucky! I am so behind on other NetGalley books that I have that I’ve put myself on a temporary ban. I didn’t realize this one was on there. May have to cave 🙂 I hope you love it!

      I love that cover! I kind of wish it didn’t have them embracing because it seems like it’s giving away the ending. But I could be wrong, will have to see once I read it!
