Wink Poppy Midnight

Finished Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke.

Summary (from Goodreads):

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 knows.
Someone is lying.”

If at all possible, try not to know any more than this when you read the book.  (Please forgive the presumption that you’ll read it; everyone should read it.)

But go in knowing as little as possible.  Let this book tell you its secrets slowly.  It’s the best way to appreciate it.

This is one of the best books I’ve read this year (easily top two or three) and now I need to go back and read her backlist.

This book is such an achievement and gift.  (I know this review is so vague, but the only thing I can say is, “JUST READ THE BOOK.”)

That’s literally all I did today. It was a really good day.

Highly recommended.
