Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.
What really happened?
Someone is lying. (Goodreads)
Wink Poppy Midnight is the first book I've read by April Genevieve Tucholke, although I've had her Between series on my to-be-read list for quite a while now. I was excited to finally read something by her, especially when it was recommended for fans of such novels as We Were Liars, The Raven Boys and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
The story is told from three different characters points of view; Wink, Poppy and Midnight. Each of these characters are interesting, and all for different reasons. Wink is the outcast, the freckled girl with the wild red hair, who lives on a farm with her huge family and who never lets it get to her when people try to bully her. Poppy is the popular girl, the girl who gets whatever she wants, whenever she wants, no matter what she has to do to get it. She's the bully of the story. And Midnight is the sweet boy who finds himself totally drawn to both Wink and Poppy for completely different reasons.
The storyline for the book was quite interesting, and the writing was beautiful, and strange, and even lyrical at times. The story was very much addictive, as well as a very quick read; I flew through the pages. I love that it was super mysterious, and kept me guessing throughout. I had no idea if what I thought to be true was really true. The ending really caught me by surprise, as it was not what I expected at all! I love a book that can keep me guessing.
Overall; Wink Poppy Midnight was my first read by April Genevieve Tucholke, but it definitely won't be my last! Having enjoy this book so much, I'm really looking forward to reading some of her previous work now, and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is the first on my list to read, hopefully soon!
