Summary: Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.
What really happened?
Someone is lying.
Note: This being a review of a sneak peek, it will be short and containing little detail.
This review may be shorter, because I have read a sample of Wink Poppy Midnight before receiving the Spring 2016 Penguin Teen Preview Sampler, and I have already bought this book (so I will be doing a full review of the book SOON).
April Genevieve Tucholke’s writing is very unique. I guess that the best word to describe it (if I had to pick a word), is raw. Her writing is also exceptionally good.
The characters resonate from the pages from the very first word, and with very little descriptive language, Tucholke has painted the image for the setting in which Wink Poppy Midnight takes place.
I cannot wait to see what happens to Wink, Midnight, and Poppy, and I definitely recommend this book.
