I love that when I open a Kody Keplinger book I always know I am going to get a fabulous contemporary novel. This was just the case with A Midsummer's Nightmare - it was a page turner to the boot and had a drama filled story that I read straight through.

I loved the story - it was so easy to get caught up in. I loved the characters and each of the stories they had to tell. Several characters from The Duff make a cameo appearance, which was so much fun to see!

Kody Keplinger really has a way with words. And she writes the best boys. Nathan was such a hunk and such a sweetheart. I just loved Harrison. He is so funny and is the sort of friend everyone wishes they would have. I wasn't as crazy about Whitley as I was the other characters, but she definitely had her moments. That being said, Whitley was a character that was really easy to connect with, as I felt like so much of what she went through was things I could connect with in some way.

A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger is a must read for anyone looking for a great contemporary. It was the perfect summer read and now I am sitting waiting for the next Kody Keplinger book to be released.
