Book Review: WAITING FOR THE NIGHT SONG (⭐⭐⭐⭐) by Julie Carrick Dalton
When her biggest childhood secret is threatened with exposure, Cadie returns to her hometown to catch up with best friend, Daniela. Will they be able to continue to conceal their secret, or is it time to face the music?
Just 11 years old when the secret event occurred, Cadie has had to deal with the consequences and accompanying emotions ever since. What were the consequences of concealing the heinous crime, and how has it affected her? Night Song was a timely novel that included an in depth look at illegal immigrants, climate change, and the devastation of forest fires. If you’re looking for a way to revisit the long, hot, summer days of your childhood, then be sure to check out this nostalgic and adventurous debut!
