MIDNITE MATINEE came from Inspiration rears its head at the most unexpected places, at the most unlikely times One Saturday night, in February 2016, while I had my antennae up for an idea for my third novel, I came home and turned on the TV I started aimlessly channel surfing I must emphasize this is exceedingly rare for me to do, given the length of my Netflix queue.When I landed on the Nashville public access station, I saw something surprising a grainy Here s where RAYNE DELILAH S MIDNITE MATINEE came from Inspiration rears its head at the most unexpected places, at the most unlikely times One Saturday night, in February 2016, while I had my antennae up for an idea for my third novel, I came home and turned on the TV I started aimlessly channel surfing I must emphasize this is exceedingly rare for me to do, given the length of my Netflix queue.When I landed on the Nashville public access station, I saw something surprising a grainy horror movie from the late sixties or seventies I kept watching The movie soon cut, as if to a commercial, to two goth looking young women, on the set of a low budget public access show It was Marlena Midnite and Robyn Graves, the hosts of Midnite Mausoleum, a public access creature feature syndicated nationwide The sweet goofiness of the show hooked me It gave me a warm, safe feeling, like hanging out with friends and watching a cheesy movie It would be part of many Saturday nights to come.But that night, two characters materialized in my mind Two young women, with differing aspirations, who host a creature feature show on their local public access station in Jackson, Tennessee I knew this would give me a long awaited opportunity to write about the magic that happens when young women create things together For years I ve volunteered at Tennessee Teens Rock Camp and Southern Girls Rock Camp, and witnessed this firsthand, as bands composed entirely of young women would take the stage with songs they d written It would also give me a chance to write about a sort of person near and dear to my heart those who try their hardest and come up short.So I began writing My first two books, The Serpent King and Goodbye Days, have moments of humor, but are primarily weighted toward darker, heavier subjects I soon realized that in writing about two girls who have a DIY show where they do skits with Frankenstein puppets, stage dog weddings, and have arbitrary dance parties, this book wanted to be the inverse of my previous two books weighted toward comedy, with moments of darkness and heaviness I hope it s a welcome departure in this sense But really, this isn t a book about TV shows or horror movies It s a book about the deepest sort of friendship, and so it s not actually a departure at all.I hope you have as much fun spending time with Josie Howard AKA Rayne Ravenscroft and Delia Wilkes AKA Delilah Darkwood as I did writing them Making something with someone you love weaves a golden thread through the fabric of your togetherness I tried to weave that golden thread into the friendship between Josie and Delia, with their Midnite Matinee What they make is small and unspectacular, but sometimes small and unspectacular things can be a universe So, grab a bag of truckbread this will make sense if you ve read it and an ice cold Cobra Venomm this will also make sense if you ve read it and enjoy

you re wondering if that s the coolest idea ever for an author to do, the answer is yes Sometimes small and unspectacular things can be a universe Josie and Delia are the sweetest of friends, they re open and honest and they are as different as Dill and Lydia yes, Serpent King reference I kind of hate the unbalanced friendship dynamic but I get that it happens sometimes Josie comes from a household with two parents who are involved maybe than she wants and she s financially stable Delia has a father who abandoned her that she s struggling to impress so he ll love her or just regret leaving her and a mother who is phenomenal when she s taking her medication At the heart of this story is not a television show but the realization that following your dreams is hard as hell and takes sacrifice and growth you may not be ready to make It s about recognizing the worth of people right in front of you instead of the ones who left It s healing hurts, accepting new pain, and risking your heart There are times when there s solace in smallness As long as there s someone by your side to remind you that you re not nothing Josie wants to be on television, Delia wants her father back in her life, and Lawson wants to be a perfect angel who steals the entire book in my opinion It s a travesty that this book isn t about Lawson He s too precious, too amazing, to be real Read it and you ll see why Anyway, these two friends come from very different backgrounds but find a friendship that is pretty spectacular Lawson is phenomenal, Arliss is moody perfection, and I think the only character I didn t connect with or particularly like is Josie who had a split POV in this story and I think I was supposed to like than I did Josie had her moments but honestly, given how easy things were for her she was pretty unbearable for a majority okay, all of the book despite having these shining moments of decency She just was really horrid at times, especially to Lawson early one, who I think we have established, I loved Real life is better, in all of it s complications, in all of its everyday quiet ache It s difficult at times to see Delia so afraid of being left behind and Josie struggling to not hold herself back in order to remain around for her Delia would never ask it of her, not truly, but it s still hard to watch Delia struggle with feeling like she s being outgrown by everyone in her life Delia is absolutely amazing and I adore her I really connected with her, her mother, and their family struggles with depression both are on meds and aware of their mental health struggles though Delia handles it better than her mother at times Another central focus of this story is Delia dealing with the aftermath of her father s abandonment Her memories of him are bright and shiny perfection but the reality is a lot different A seven year old was left by her father and as a recent high school graduate, she still hasn t come to terms with how he could have done such a thing My heart hurt for her but her character arc really was the best part of this story that and her relationship with her mother which was raw and messy and lovely I love Jeff s work, you guys know this, and this story was a great coming of age tale that was feminist, sassy and sarcastic and than a little random at times which I loved It was over the top at times the Russian mafia makes an appearance and at times it really had me scratching my heard but I still enjoyed the read Trigger warnings for depression, suicidal thoughts, abandonment All quotes are taken from an arc copy and subject to change

stupid and scared of rejection, and partly because I am weird and I often enjoy going to the bookstore on the day a book is released There is just something about a Tuesday morning, am I right However, when I had the amazing opportunity to read Jeff Zentner s newest book early I DID NOT HESITATE I had to have it He is one of the best contemporary authors out there He wrote my absolute favorite book, The Serpent King, and I made a deal with myself that I would literally read anything and everything that he ever writes His stories always speak to me, touch my heart in unexpected ways, and of course, make me bawl my damn eyes out Rayne and Delilah s Midnite Matinee was no exception.I ll start off by saying that Rayne and Delilah was by far the most upbeat book that Jeff Zentner has written so far I knew he was a witty dude, but holy hell, this book had me wondering if he practices stand up comedy in his spare time The humor and wit is unparalleled Every single line is true comedy gold, and I laughed out loud times than I can even begin to count I wish that Josie and Delia were real people because I know that myself and my best friend, Becca, would love to hang out with them all day long They would be the perfect people to join us in making sarcastic jokes about all of the fools that we have to deal with on a daily basis, while also hardcore hating on all things relating to country music Besides being the queens of hilarity, Josie and Delia are also two of the most relatable characters that I ve ever read I saw so much of myself in both of them, and I totally wish that I would have had their gumption when I was in high school A lot of YA books deal with friendship, but I think that Rayne and Delilah brought the friendship theme to a whole new level It was extremely refreshing to read about two female best friends who were totally in sync and focused on things outside of romance Speaking of romance, Rayne and Delilah has some of that too And it was another thing that I adored about the book The romantic aspect was subtle enough to not overshadow the main story, but prevalent enough to keep my romance loving heart happy Who freakin knew that a male could write such a relatable, honest, and swoon worthy love story told from the perspective of a female Seriously, kudos to Jeff for having the guts to not only attempt this, but to succeed with flying colors It takes a true talent for an author to be able to delve into the mind of a persona that they themselves have never been, but trust me when I say that I was so pleasantly surprised about how well Jeff Zentner executed this girl power esque story.I ve talked about how funny and cute this book is, but I have yet to describe how it is also so very heartwarming and emotional There were times where I had to read certain paragraphs twice because I was so moved and inspired I have always appreciated that both of Jeff s previous books harp on the fact that you do not have to do extraordinary things to be an extraordinary person I love the message that people can be happy living a simple life I think it s an important thing to convey to young people like myself, who sometimes struggle soooo hard to be the best , and subsequently think of themselves as failures when they don t experience the fame and fortune they think they desire My emotions were also on high alert whenever I read the subtle, yet so important, passages about mental health As someone who struggles with depression, accurate mental health representation is something that I always look for in books And I mean, come on, it wouldn t be a Jeff Zentner book if it wasn t at least a little sad.I could realistically write about 6 paragraphs describing everything that I loved about Rayne and Delilah s Midnite Matinee, but I ll end this by saying that you need this book in your life, and you should definitely go buy it when it comes out on February 26, 2019 You also need The Serpent King and Goodbye Days if you have not yet read those All three of them are life changing and life affirming novels that will always hold a special place in my heart 5 STARS I was provided an ARC of this book as part

Midwest And they may just have their chance at a big break at an upcoming con in Florida where they may get to meet a producer who could take them national.Oh, but you kid This is Zentner we re talking about And far from the usual stereotype of male writers getting female leads wrong with all that breasted boobily crap, Zentner, to my eye, writes a very sensitive portrayal of Josie and Delia both He also writes in a lot of skewerings of male fans for their constant criticism of any and every little thing Josie and Delia might get wrong in terms of fandom knowledge And the producers Dear God, the producers I was reading this morning, drinking a Mayan Mocha, and I was sorely tempted to pour my drink over the book while reading about the producers just to disinfect it of their presence They re that bloody disgusting.So yeah, it s not a smooth ride, not by a long shot But it s got a lot of moments of sweetness too Especially when Lawson figures into the picture, a most awesome blend of brains and brawn An MMA fighter with a massive geekboy side, so I totally picture him resembling the guy who s gonna be my tattoo artist this coming weekend.For sure, when this book comes out in a few months, I ll be happily adding it to my hand selling repertoire Along with The Serpent King, whenever we get that one in stock again D flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 22, 2018
