Night Owls by Jenn Bennett : Book Review
Publication date: August 13th 2015
Published by: Simon and Schuster UK
Genres: YA, Romance, realistic, mental health
Feeling alive is always worth the risk.
Meeting Jack on the Owl—San Francisco's night bus—turns Beatrix's world upside down. Jack is charming, wildly attractive...and possibly one of San Francisco's most notorious graffiti artists.
But Jack is hiding a piece of himself. On midnight rides and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who this enigmatic boy really is.
I read this book wanting a happy romantic book that was extremely cutesy and while it was a romantic book that gave me the feels, it wasn't all that happy. Jack and Beatrix's lives are a bit all over the place and not very organised with their lives falling to pieces numberous times throughout the book but without it being to dramatic and just getting on my nerves.
This book really is a book that is better going into blind because of all the twists and turns that it takes throughout the process of the story. It does contain some scenes with mental health, not from the perspective of the main character, which I found very refreshing and much easier to read about because sometimes I find books that deal with mental health are a bit too much for me.
In conclusion, this is a phenomenal book that has characters that deal with real situations in realistic ways. I'm giving this book a 5/5 stars. Truly stunning.
