Synopsis

It’s the night of senior prom, and eighteen-year-old Julia has made a pact with her friends. (Yes, that kind of pact.) They have secured a secluded cabin in the woods, one night without parental supervision, and plenty of condoms. But as soon as they leave the dance, the pact begins to unravel. Alex’s grandmother is undergoing emergency surgery, and he and his date rush to the hospital. Zoe’s trying to figure out how she feels about getting off the waitlist at Yale–and how to tell her girlfriend. Madison’s chronic illness flares, holding her back once again from being a normal teenager. And Julia’s fantasy-themed role play gets her locked in a closet. Alternating between each character’s perspective and their ridiculous group chat, The Night When No One Had Sex finds a group of friends navigating the tenuous transition into adulthood and embracing the uncertainty of life after high school…


Review

Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and author Kalena Miller for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The rest of the Tour Schedule can be found below!

TNWNOHS is one of the most heartwarming reads I have read this year. I truly thought that this book was going to be wholly focused on virginity and the acts of sex, but it was honestly so much more than that. Our cast of characters are each unique in their personalities and the situation that they are in. This book tackled not only sex, but also illness, family troubles, and indecisiveness concerning the future. It wasn’t hard to get to know each of the characters when flipping through the different POVs. The pacing of the book was also really well done and this book could easily be read in one sitting! The text message conversations interwoven into the story were a great addition and a wonderful way to tie all of our characters to each other even though they’re not necessarily in the same place. This is honestly the perfect read for high schoolers and I wish this book had been around when I was in high school.
