McGarry's strength is not only in amazing storytelling, but in the golden touch she has with character development. You wouldn't expect to get so attached to Stella and Jonah in these few pages, but I did! They were fully rounded out characters. You get just enough backstory, just enough current situation, and just enough hope, that you'll love them. Even the few secondary characters felt like they weren't just cardboard cut-outs. And, though this isn't officially part of McGarry's Pushing the Limits series, one of my favorite characters makes an appearance, and I got a big smile on my face. It was the perfect addition to this already remarkable novella.
Overall, I loved Red at Night! I loved the beautiful, touching story and the remarkable, heartfelt characters. If you are a fan of McGarry's than you will love this treat. If you are unfamiliar with McGarry's writing, then this is the perfect way to get a peek at her writing, and discover for yourself how great she is.
However this story I rated as a 4 star. My reason is this a novella and for the fact that it lacked the depth of emotion and storyline that her other books have displayed.
Stella and Jonah - I really felt that the personalities and their depth of character only superficially scraped the surface of the feelings that they might have experienced. Stella comes from a background of being intermittently, and I say intermittently, brought up by her father who disappears randomly. She is currently living with her father's girlfriend and attending school. Stella comes from a background of instability and a lack of financial resources, she meets Jonah at a cemetery and it is here that the beginning of their relationship develops. However, I felt that Jonah's suffering ultimately ended up being owned by him. Jonah was not responsible for what happened to John Cohen, therefore I found it hard to understand why Jonah felt such a sense of responsibility for John's death.
What I liked was that because of Jonah's traumatic experience his eyes were opened to the fragility of life and the fact that we don't always have a choice as to the path that life takes us down. Stella had a real sense of rejection that she had suffered at the hands of Jonah's friends, in particular Cooper, and their prejudices with regard to her individuality and her lifestyle. Ultimately the friendship and bonding that developed between them at the cemetery brings two beautiful but damaged people together with the help of self healing for themselves individually and also as a couple.
I certainly recommend this book but the stories that this author has written namely Crash into You, Dare to You, Pushing the Limits and Take Me On are definitely an amazingly good read.
“Hope is a deadly snake with fangs of poison.”
Stella and Jonah are total opposites. They’ve attended school together for years but they barely know one another. Stella is a tough, smart, and beautiful girl. She grew up poor and she was constantly teased by Jonah’s friends because of how she dressed and looked. She’s never knew her mother and her father is addicted to drugs and alcohol. Her father has abandoned her more than once and she’s had to go from home to home, staying with her father’s ex-girlfriends, until he decides to come back for her. For Stella disappointment and heartache is a normal thing and having hope for the better can only lead to heartbreak.
“I’ve walked into this school hundreds of times, but this time it’s different. It’s because I’m different and I’m never going back to who I used to be.”
For Jonah he’s things have always been good in his life. He’s always lived in a nice home and had new clothes and shoes, plenty of food, family and friends. He never questioned things or stood up for anyone, he always went with the flow of things. When Jonah is involved in a car accident, something happens that affects him greatly. He realizes he could have died that night and it makes him question how he’s been living his life. It makes him feel differently about everything. His friends and family don’t understand how he feels.
“Love is as dangerous. It’s just as bad as hope. This is the way of life for me. I have to accept that.Read more ›
