In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She’s the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He’s a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella’s favorite refuge…the local cemetery.
Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah’s friends. Once he’s sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won’t have time for her anymore. Too bad she’s already fallen for him.
This is a beautiful, moving short story. This is a story about two teenagers who are complete opposites. They have completely different lives. Stella is a poor girl who was moved from place to place all her life. Jonah is a rich guy who hangs out with all the popular kids. They’ve had a complicated past together, relating to one of Jonah’s friends and some of his actions, but they are able to move past it when they meet in a cemetery and start spending time there together. I absolutely loved this. The character development is phenomenal. It’s definitely worth a read, plus it’s free!
My hand eases from her hip to her face, my thumb brushing against her cheek. Stella leans into me—all soft curves, all feminine, a heat that sparks and smolders at the same time. Her head tilts up as I lower mine and I know the moment our lips touch, any hope I had of returning to my old life will no longer exist.
