Waiting for the Night song is Julie Carrick Dalton's brilliant debut about fighting for what you believe in and the powerful impact of the truth. The novel follows Cadie, who has spent her life trying to cover up a deep secret. When her childhood friend suddenly gets incontact with her, she suddenly is forced to face her past and the question of how far she is willing to go to protect the truth.
I found this book incredibly riveting, and could not put it down. The protagonist, Cadie, was very complex, but still likeable. Even though she frequently made choices I wished she would not, I still found myself rooting for her to the end. I was also very invested how her story would play out, and what truly happened during that summer. I would give this a definite recomendation to anyone in need of a deeply emotional, mysterious character study.
