Ferris Bueller’s Day Off meets Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist in this romp through the city that never sleeps from the New York Times bestselling author of Since You’ve Been Gone.

Two girls. One night. Zero phones.

Kat and Stevie—best friends, theater kids, polar opposites—have snuck away from the suburbs to spend a night in New York City. They have it all planned out. They’ll see a play, eat at the city’s hottest restaurant, and have the best. Night. Ever. What could go wrong?

Well. Kind of a lot?

They’re barely off the train before they’re dealing with destroyed phones, family drama, and unexpected Pomeranians. Over the next few hours, they’ll have to grapple with old flames, terrible theater, and unhelpful cab drivers. But there are also cute boys to kiss, parties to crash, dry cleaning to deliver (don’t ask), and the world’s best museum to explore.

Over the course of a wild night in the city that never sleeps, both Kat and Stevie will get a wake-up call about their friendship, their choices…and finally discover what they really want for their future.

That is, assuming they can make it to Grand Central before the clock strikes midnight.

Basically, anything with theatre kids / performing arts is a MUST read for me, and I loved the premise of this one. Two best friends sneak away to the city for a fantastic evening when EVERYTHING goes wrong.

Kat and Stevie were so well-written, I felt like I was a part of their friendship and was there cheering them both on! From their individual struggles to the constant feelings of it ALL going wrong no matter what they tried, Matson wrote this in a way that made me feel nostalgically SEEN. When you’re in high school it all seems SO important until it doesn’t, and what teen doesn’t want the ultimate evening of adventure + shenanigans?!

The different points of view and interesting cast of side characters kept the story moving and interesting, always something new at each turn! Matson does such a great job of showing teens dealing with family, friends and that looming future, highly recommend reading this one if you’re a YA fan.

I cannot believe this is my first book by Matson, I obviously need to check out her backlist ASAP.
