"The Breakfast Club" gets a modern, high-stakes reboot in this story of four very different teens and a night that changes them forever.
The Rebel: Once popular, Andi is now a dreadlocked, tattooed wild child.
The Bully: York torments everyone who crosses his path, especially his younger brother.
The Geek: Tired of being bullied, Boston is obsessed with getting into an Ivy League college.
The Pariah: Choosing to be invisible has always worked for Sam . . . until tonight.
When Andi, York, Boston, and Sam find themselves hiding in the woods after a party gets busted by the cops, they hop into the nearest car they see and take off—the first decision of many in a night that will change their lives forever. By the light of day, these four would never be caught dead together, but when their getaway takes a dangerously unpredictable turn, sticking together could be the only way to survive.
With cinematic storytelling and compelling emotional depth, critically acclaimed author Erin Jade Lange takes readers on literary thrill ride.
What to say about this book? There is so much to say because so many things are going on and so much happening. I love stories like this because there is so much going on that you are not sure where one story ends and the other story begins.
You get to meet four different teens in this story. Andi who is the rebel. York is the bully. Boston is the geek. Sam is the pariah. Okay what the heck do these four teens have in common? They are completely different from one another but one thing will bond them together forever.
The teens go to a party when the police come and they decide to run into the woods together. Once on the other side of the woods the teens get into the first car they see and take off. As the night proceeds the teens get a glimpse of what happens when you make the wrong decision. By the morning they will need each other and have a lot in common with each other.
Erin writes facts by day and fiction by night. As a journalist, she is inspired by current events and real-world issues and uses her writing to explore how those issues impact teenagers.
She is an only child, so she spent a lot of time entertaining herself as a kid. This required her to rely heavily on her own imagination, which is probably why she became a writer.
Erin grew up in the cornfields of northern Illinois, along the Mississippi River in one of the few places it flows east to west. She now lives in the sunshine of Arizona and will forever be torn between her love of rivers and her love of the desert.
