I’m back again continuing the celebration of Jessica Pennington latest novel, Meet Me at Midnight, which is the perfect summer romcom! Today, I’ve teamed up with Jess to introduce you to the main characters, Sidney and Asher!
Note from Jessica: I’m admittedly the worst at finding actresses or even photos that fully match up with my character visions (perhaps I need to hone my googling skills?) but if Ellie Gall had slightly darker brown hair, this would be a pretty solid match for how I envision Sidney–the curly hair and the deceptively sweet face to distract from her criminal-mastermind-esque tendencies!
Note from Jessica: Asher is athletic and snarky and sweet. Noah Centineo isn’t the perfect fit (I imagine Asher a little more cute and a little less rugged) but he’s pretty close!
Release Date: April 7, 2020

They have a love-hate relationship with summer.
Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year–in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet.
But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note—Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy—the woman who kicked them out.
Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. A serial entrepreneur with a B.A. in public relations, Jessica has a passion for grassroots marketing. She lives in a Michigan beach town, where she owns more YA novels than many teens and spends most of her time on a laptop, rather than on a beach.

I love that the characters are both reading the same book to get the attention of the other.

Those Character Profiles are such a great idea and so cute! It’s nice to be able to get an idea of how the author sees the characters and what she thinks they look like.
