Synopsis: In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.

Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him.

I read this book on April 6th 2014.

Red at Night was a touching story with romance, bullying, and friendships.

This book goes to show that you don't always know who your friends are. As we see with Jonah and his friend, you don't know who your friends are really until something dire happens. His friends changed when he was at the car crash and we see that that really affected him and changed him for the better.

Jonah's character was well written and was sweet and I think that he was amazing in standing up for Stella whether she wanted him to or not.
Stella was a strong female lead, reminded me of many people I know wrapped up in one. It was amazingly sad what this girl went and goes through at such a young age!

I thought it was great that HarlequinTEEN did this collection of stories to help people be aware of things that really happen in the world. Katie McGarry did a shoe company that provides unfortunate kids with shoes for free. I think this is amazing and just loved everything going on in the story. However, I found Stella could be stubborn at times but it all worked out for the best!
