The Long Night of Leo and Bree

The Long Night of Leo and Bree Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NOBODY SHOULD HAVE A NIGHT LIKE THIS.

8:30 P.M.: It's been four years since Michelle was killed. Leo can't stand to be at home with his mom — she's crazy with rage. He's got anger of his own and pictures of his dead sister he can't get out of his head.

9:00 P.M.: Bree parks her mom's car and locks the doors. She's in a bad part of town, but she knows the bar has to be around here somewhere. All she wants is to escape for a while and have a good time.

9:15 P.M.: Leo, out for a drive to get away from his mom, spots Bree. Why is this girl alive while Michelle's not?

By 6:30 A.M., when their long night is over, everything has changed.

Synopsis:

On the anniversary of his sister's murder, Leo kidnaps Bree, thinking her death will bring his sister back. Instead, the teens talk, learning about each other and themselves--and falling in love.

Synopsis:

Leo spots Bree driving around on the four-year anniversary of his sister's brutal murder. In his rage, Leo thinks that if Bree dies, maybe his sister will come back. He kidnaps Bree and ties her up in his basement. But in her fear, Bree starts talking about her life, and it strikes a chord with Leo. Over the course of a night, they both learn about each other and themselves--in fact, they may have fallen in love. This is award-winning author Ellen Wittlinger at her best, exploring the feelings and actions of two teenagers caught up in something bigger than they expected.
