they say never to judge a book by the cover. i am absolutely guilty of being a cover snob. i don’t think there is anything wrong with being excited about a book because it has a great cover and this cover is the best. it reminds me of travel agency posters and nostalgia.
deanna cabinian has a gem of a book here. i am not sure what exactly i was expecting after first reading about this book, but one night is a charming coming-of-age story told from a very refreshing perspective. the characters are well crafted and thoroughly developed. it was a wonderful escape to follow Thompson and Johnny on their summer adventure.
my favorite thing about this book was the voice it is written in. it was refreshing to read a book in the YA world that was written from a male perspective. deanna expertly crafted a quaint, endearing story line with characters that you will find yourself wanting to hang out with.
