Salut mon petit minion euphorians, how is life treating you? I hope better than me, lol
For today I bring to you the wonderful story of Susannah Hayes in The Midnights. This story has a melancholy feel to it with a side dish of inspirational.
Through the wondrous power of music, this beautiful story navigates the path of friendship, family, the grief of losing someone, and finding who you are. (Proven once again, music never fails).
The setting description was my favorite part of the book. The scenery and visuals given made me feel like I was right there in Orange County. An unforgettable read, indeed.
Southern California is perpetually soft and subtropical with the perfect beach breeze, that sweet lick of sunshine, I knew the truth. The real Southern California exists in extremes. It’s a place of spontaneous wildfires, and Santa Ana winds, and droughts that turn lakes into craters, splintering the earth like pottery that has crazed. It’s a place of storms that transform streets into oceans, and I had no doubts now: the rain was coming.
I mean, WOW!
This is the type of story that I will cherish in the subconscious part of my mind for years and years to come.
I would recommend this book to fans of Sarah Dessen and Meg Cabot

And the pain doesn’t get easier. It may lose its priority in your life, but it will always be a big fucking crater right in the center of you. The best you can do is try to keep it from swallowing you whole.
I was afraid that he would slip away until nothing remained but an old photo and a faint longing
