Every Friday night, best friends Delia and Josie become Rayne Ravenscroft and Delilah Darkwood, hosts of the campy creature feature show Midnite Matinee on the local cable station TV Six.
But with the end of senior year quickly approaching, the girls face tough decisions about their futures. Josie has been dreading graduation, as she tries to decide whether to leave for a big university and chase her dream career in mainstream TV. And Lawson, one of the show’s guest performers, a talented MMA fighter with weaknesses for pancakes, fantasy novels, and Josie, is making her tough decision even harder.
Scary movies are the last connection Delia has to her dad, who abandoned the family years ago. If Midnite Matinee becomes a hit, maybe he’ll see it and want to be a part of her life again. And maybe Josie will stay with the show instead of leaving her behind, too.
As the tug-of-war between growing up and growing apart tests the bonds of their friendship, Josie and Delia start to realize that an uncertain future can be both monstrous…and momentous.
Rayne & Delia Midnite Matinee is such a good read. A book about testing the bonds of a friendship. It was fun to read at times.
Delia is a huge horror fan and started her online show with best friend Rayne. Delia try to uses the show to connect with her father, who walked out on her. Rayne is there to support her along the way. Until after high school, Rayne has other plans that don’t involve being on show forever. Things may be changing for their friendship, but in the end will they still stay friends?
I thought the book started out pretty good. I enjoy how they girls put together their horror show. It was fun reading how close the girls are and people thinking they sisters. Toward the end I thought the story dragged out a bit then it needed it to be. If your in mood for some friendship reads, then you might enjoy this book.
