Synopsis

Kristin Hannah's Night Road was selected for the UK's 2011 TV Book Club Summer Read.

Lexi and Mia are inseparable from the moment they start high school. Different in so many ways – Lexi is an orphan and lives with her aunt on a trailer park, while Mia is a golden girl blessed with a loving family, and a beautiful home. Yet they recognize something in each other which sets them apart from the crowd, and Mia comes to rely heavily on Lexi’s steadfast friendship.

Mia’s beloved, and incredibly good-looking, twin brother Zach, finds life much less complicated than his sister. Jude thought she’d never have to worry about her son, that he’d always sail through life easily achieving whatever he, and his family, wanted and expected – but then he fell in love.

The summer they graduated is a time they will always remember, and one they could never forget. It is a summer of love, best friends, shared confidences and promises. Then one moment one night changes them all forever. As hearts are broken, loyalties challenged and hopes dashed, the time has come to leave childhood behind and learn to face the future.

In the media

Hannah masterfully details the unraveling of a family.
People magazine
Night Road is like a guilty pleasure. It’s a more grown-up, present-day version of The O.C. and is about a group of young people, who’ve something terrible happening in their lives. The book is basically about the consequence of this one terrible night and how it changes their lives forever.
Saturday Magazine, Daily Express
A gripping, emotional read.
