Midnight Sun Review...

A heartbreaking tale of love, loss and one nearly perfect summer - perfect for fans of The Fault In Our Stars and Love, Simon.

Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend. It isn't until after nightfall that Katie's world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going.

Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life - and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance.

As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them - and everyone around them - forever.



Not only did I love this book but I truly enjoyed the movie as well.  So this book follows Katie as she struggles to feel human as she falls for her crush Charlie.  Katie was diagnosed with a disease that stopped her from leaving the house in the daylight at a young age.  She would watch Charlie head to school every day and one night they meet for real.  This is their love story and her end.

I felt like the book was reminiscent of Nicholas Sparks' book 'A Walk to Remember' however I enjoyed both the book and movie in this case.  With 'A Walk to Remember' I loved the movie but not so much the book.  This was my first book by Trish Cook and I look forward to reading more.  It was an easy read but that didn't take away from the story.

The book was extremely well written and I finished it relatively quickly, I think it took a day or two.  I loved Trish's writing style and truly enjoyed the story.  The characters were well formed and thought out.  The plot was fun and interesting.  I would absolutely recommend this book to anybody looking for a quick and easy read.  I look forward to reading more books by this author one day.
