A bolt of lightning inspires an incredible adventure in this charming, magical realism story that takes four teens on an all-night journey through the streets of New York City.

Extraordinary things happen when we least expect them.

Tiny, Lu, Will and Nathaniel used to be best friends. Then life-defining events the summer before high school tore them apart. Now, three years later, they hardly talk anymore. Nathaniel has become obsessed with winning the prestigious science scholarship that his genius older brother once won. Will has risen from anonymity to popular soccer star. Lu grew into a brash, impetuous actress. And shy, poetic Tiny has slowly been fading away.

But fate weaves their lives together again the night before the SATs, during a wild thunderstorm that threatens to shut down New York City. And lightning strikes.

Before they know what's hit them, the four teens embark on an epic all-night adventure to follow their dreams, fall in and out of love, reconcile the past, and overcome the fears that have been driving them since that one lost summer. And by the time the sun rises, odds are they'll discover that there's a fine line between science and magic, and that the mysteries of love and friendship can't be explained.

Tiny, Lu, Will and Nathaniel used to be best friends until the summer before high school tore them apart. Three years later they barely even talk, going their different ways. The night before the SAT’s they all find themselves together at Will’s Stormpocalypse party since New York is experiencing a huge thunderstorm that threatens to shut down the city. The four of them find themselves on an all night adventure to follow their dreams, fall in and out of love, and overcome fears that once drove them apart.
This book sounded so interesting and maybe I’ll come back to it later but after 100 pages of very slow and confusing POV flips I gave up. The concept sounded original but I just couldn't get through it. Rating - out of 5 stars.
