I absolutely loved the book Cake at Midnight by Jessie. L Star, from Pocket Star publishing. As soon as I started reading it, I was obsessed with the storyline. I really enjoyed how Star has written the book. The storyline follows Gio, a woman in her early 20's, who has had a crush on a childhood friend Dec for years and years but a twist is put into the works when she befriends her neighbour Theo. It was refreshing to read both sides of the story, from Gio and Theo, in each chapter. I found that each of the curve balls in the book made it more interesting to read and harder to put down. I thought the book was relatable and included familiar connections to modern dating expectations, or lack of them, within Australia. The various relationships represented in the book kept me intrigued while reading, desperately needing to know how it would all pan out in the end. I feel like there was a good mixture of positive/ negative events that happened during the book. Including enough realistic truths to keep the book from trailing off into a gushy romance novel. I found this book to be a fantastic read and would recommend it to young adults, as the storyline is so relevant and current within today's society. Very thankful for the opportunity to read this book as part of the beauty and lace book club.
