Red at Night (Harlequin More Than Words) by Katie McGarry
In Red at Night, Stella and Jonah are total opposites. She's the girl with purple hair from the wrong part of town. He's a high school senior who hangs with the cool crowd. Until a car accident leaves him haunted by guilt, and Jonah starts spending time at Stella's favorite refuge…the local cemetery.
Stella knows she should keep her distance—after all, she spent her girlhood being bullied by Jonah's friends. Once he's sorted out his tangled emotions, Jonah won't have time for her anymore. Too bad she's already fallen for him.

I wanted to read Red at Night because I have really enjoyed everything by Katie McGarry and wanted to know what would make two teenagers hang out in cemeteries.
Stella has a rough upbringing and she finds comfort in being there, where no one makes fun of her.When Jonah appears day after day at the cemetery where she frequents, they both are curious about each other. I can't imagine the bullying and how Stella must feel to rather be around the dead. Also the pain that Jonah feels, the guilt, and not many people gets what he went through.
With a traumatic event like he experienced, a complete stranger, and how he had the bravery to do what people can't understand, putting themselves aside and doing something for a person in desperate need.
Their romance was sweet, and so was the novella, but I think it did the characters justice, and I think their issues were pretty well explored.
I loved the writing style and so far anything in this world that Katie has written I have enjoyed and will continue to read that one.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Where is the weirdest spot you've hung out?
