Synopsis via Goodreads
One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just “troubled.” Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.

Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she? They insist Kylie is one of them, and that she was brought here for a reason. As if life wasn’t complicated enough, enter Derek and Lucas. Derek’s a half-fae who’s determined to be her boyfriend, and Lucas is a smokin’ hot werewolf with whom Kylie shares a secret past. Both Derek and Lucas couldn’t be more different, but they both have a powerful hold on her heart.

Even though Kylie feels deeply uncertain about everything, one thing is becoming painfully clear—Shadow Falls is exactly where she belongs…

Noteworthy Passages

Kylie and Della; pg. 167
"That wasn't a fight. We were just having a tiff."
"You threatened to sell her blood on eBay," Kylie said. "Where I come from, that qualifies as a fight."

Kylie and Kylie's mom; pgs. 324-325
When her mom turned around to say her final good-byes, she reached out and gave Kylie's arm a squeeze.
Kylie's chest tightened as the memory of needing a hug at Nana's funeral came barreling back at her.
"You know, some mom's hug their kids."
Shock crossed her mom's face. "Do you need me to hug you?"
"No," Kylie said. Who wanted a hug you had to ask for? It was like having to ask for an apology.


A touch of humor and a touch of emotion, I hope you all enjoyed those two passages. To find out more on my thoughts of Born at Midnight, check out my Review.

Great choices! Each conveys an entirely different emotional aspect, but both made me want to check the book out even more. That second one is so sad too :( I haven't even read the book, but I already feel bad for Kylie. I'd give that girl random hugs all the time if I knew her.
