Book Review: One Past Midnight

One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington (Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books) 2014.  352 pages. Grades 7&up.

one past midnight

For the last eighteen years, Sabine has lead two lives. She lives a full twenty-four hours in one life as a surly teenager in a lower-middle class family. At the stroke of midnight, she must relive the same twenty-four hours as a popular, rich queen bee. So far Sabine has managed to balance these two lives, but after eighteen years, she is tired and wants a way out. Unfortunately, in order to choose a life, she must say goodbye to one of her families.

As Sabine slipped back and forth into each life, I could not wait to go back with her. I raced through the pages as both of her worlds unraveled. I was rewarded with an intense conclusion that ended on a satisfying note.
