“Stevie and Kat’s friendship feels solid, honest, and real...each character is carefully crafted and easily distinguishable, no small feat with the size of this cast.” ―School Library Journal
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist in this romp through the city that never sleeps from the New York Times bestselling author of Since You’ve Been Gone.
Two girls. One night. Zero phones.
Kat and Stevie—best friends, theater kids, polar opposites—have snuck away from the suburbs to spend a night in New York City. They have it all planned out. They’ll see a play, eat at the city’s hottest restaurant, and have the best. Night. Ever. What could go wrong?
Well. Kind of a lot?
They’re barely off the train before they’re dealing with destroyed phones, family drama, and unexpected Pomeranians. Over the next few hours, they’ll have to grapple with old flames, terrible theater, and unhelpful cab drivers. But there are also cute boys to kiss, parties to crash, dry cleaning to deliver (don’t ask), and the world’s best museum to explore.
Over the course of a wild night in the city that never sleeps, both Kat and Stevie will get a wake-up call about their friendship, their choices…and finally, discover what they really want for their future.
That is, assuming they can make it to Grand Central before the clock strikes midnight.
“A hilariously outrageous B plot helps keep Kat and Stevie's adventures in perspective as they crisscross Manhattan, testing old bonds and forging new ones. Matson (Save the Date, 2018) delivers another high-energy contemporary adventure that's bursting with drama, and readers will happily join in for the fun.”
