Late Lights by Kara Weiss is a short fictional novel told in short story form.  Each chapter is told by a different narrator, but all of the narrators are connected in various ways.   Monty is in and out of juvie, and is struggling to get his life back on track.  It would be much easier for him if his father was a little more helpful.   BJ is a wreck. . . she's in denial about her self image and could use some good friends.  And Erin is trying to run away from it all.  Actually, all 3 kids are trying to run away from it all, and they are all troubled in different ways and connected through a friendship that started years before.   While Late Lights isn't a happy-go-lucky story, it's not altogether depressive either.  It's kind of in between and feels very genuine and real.  It's a quick read but Weiss's writing is addictive.     After reading this novella, I wanted more!  I wanted more depth, more information, more more more.  Is this a case of a fabulous author or was the book just too short?  I'm thinking it's Kara Weiss that's making me want more!  Thank you Leah @ Books Speak Volumes for the giveaway that won me this (signed!!!!) copy!   Have you read a novella that has knocked your socks off? Thanks for reading,  Rebecca @ Love at First Book
