"Reading this YA heist-gone-wrong thriller was like being strapped to the front of a Ferrari doing 120MPH. . . .This book is one. Wild. Ride. " -Matthew Landis, author of League of American Traitors and The Not-So-Boring Letters of Private Nobody

Scott and Winny went to the Cafe Flores wanting to escape their normal teen troubles; now, held hostage at gunpoint, they just want to leave alive. Perfect for fans of This is Where It Ends and Party.

10PM: Closing time at Cafe Flores. The door should be locked, but it isn't. Scott Bradley and Winsome Sommervil are about to become hostages.

TEN MINUTES BEFORE CLOSING: Scott's girlfriend breaks up with him in the cafe's basement storeroom because he's late picking her up for the big end-of-the-year party. Now he can't go to the party, but he can't go home, either-not knowing his dad will still be in a drunken rage. Meanwhile, Winny wanted one night to let loose, away from her mother's crushing expectations. Instead, she's stranded at the cafe after her best friend ditches her in a misguided attempt at matchmaking.

TEN MINUTES AFTER CLOSING: The first gunshot is fired. Someone's dead. And if Winny, Scott, and the rest of the hostages don't come up with a plan soon, they may not live to see morning.

Told from both Winny and Scott's perspectives, and alternating between the events leading up to and following the hold-up, Ten After Closing is an explosive story of teens wrestling with their own challenges, thrown into circumstances that will test their very limits.
