Both of Hadley's choices include Josh, the boy Hadley used to be madly in love with. He's a social outcast and most people in their town believe he has committed a horrendous crime. Hadley finally has the chance to find out what went wrong between them. The past and present are intertwined and she will make more discoveries in one night than she would have ever imagined. Can she still fix her problems without lifelong consequences or have things gone too far for that?
A Million Times Goodnight is a gripping story. I was hooked from the start and read this book in one sitting. It's a quick read, an adrenaline packed rollercoaster ride that made me hold my breath from the beginning and only let me release it at the end. I loved reading about the effects of both of Hadley's decisions. They're equally captivating and both of the stories are strong. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. It's obvious that Hadley's world has split while it isn't being mentioned, it's the natural direction of the story and I liked that very much.
Hadley is a sweet girl and she's seen and been through way too much for a girl her age. She's loved and lost and sometimes my heart ached for her. I wanted to know Josh's story. He's fascinating and I was immediately curious. Krista McBride doesn't disappoint, she uses creative and original explanations that are believable and astonishing at the same time. A Million Times Goodnight has so many unexpected twists and turns that I kept being amazed. The ending is surprising and I could have never come up with the clue of the story. I knew it would be awful and expected it to be good, which is exactly what it was like, but other than that I had no idea.
Kristina McBride words flow easily and she knows how to keep her readers interested. She builds her tension from the beginning until there's way too much pressure. It's inevitable that there will be a big burst. I loved how she lets everything blow up and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I liked the way she's using that incredible suspense to her advantage. She's written a horrible, but also terribly good story. I loved A Million Times Goodnight, it's a fantastic book.
Hadley borrows her boyfriend's car on the night of the one year anniversary of her best friend's death. He then posts a naked picture of her on Facebook, and when Hadley runs up into the tower to think, she runs into her ex-boyfriend Josh.
She then invites him to go to the party with her and as they are leaving an accident almost occurs and the path diverges. In one path Hadley, Brooklyn, Josh and Mia all head to Cincinnati to plan the ultimate revenge on Ben for posting that picture, in the other they all go to the party.
So in different paths, the same things unfold in a different timeframe. Hadley finds that her boyfriend is upset about more than the car, and then secrets start coming to light.
So I know I was vague but spoilers, come on now you know me by now. What I will say is I loved this, I admit I was intrigued when I saw that it was compared to Sliding Doors, which I love. It is the only movie I love with what's her name in it. I wasn't sure that I would love this, and I admit when it goes to different paths you have to be paying attention it took me two chapters to catch on. So just so you know it starts off all on one timeline when it seems like they are going to hit a car it then switches between paths.
I loved the friendships in this book, loved them! Hadley was okay she grew on me as the book went on. I wasn't sure about Josh he was frustrating in both paths, and Ben was just well I can't say too much about him, but yeah..
I couldn't stop reading this, I had to see how it would end I was on the edge of my seat until the very end.
A Million Times Goodnight is a young adult novel that reminds us that every choice has a consequence and sometimes those consequences have far-reaching ramifications.
The characters are young, fearless, and at times irresponsible. The writing style is unique and delves into the idea of parallel universes by utilizing alternating chapters to present the different "what if" scenarios. And the plot is a fast-paced, twisty thrill ride full of adventure, heartbreak, and surprises.
It is, ultimately, a story about life, love, secrets, deception, betrayal, teenage drama, and friendship.
A Million Times Goodnight is a very intriguing novel that at times is quite moving. And although I didn't connect with the characters as much as I would have liked to I think teens, the target demographic, would definitely be able to identify and relate to their behaviour, mindset, and choices more readily.
