**REVIEW** Until Friday Night (The Field Party #1) by Abbi Glines

Reviewer: Lady T
Rating: 4 Stars


To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…


I enjoyed this book, I usually don't read YA. But this was written by Abbi, so I had to dive into it. This story is very well written, Abbi doesn't disappoint as usual. 

I liked West, he was a great character. He had his own battles, even though he was the star football player. The guy the girls wanted. The playboy. But he was breaking and shattering inside. He had secrets he didn't tell anyone, until Maggie. The girl with no words, the pretty, lonely, breakable girl. Who's life was shattered when her Father killed her mother in front of her.

I have read stories like Magie's before. But Miss Glines did make it unique in her own way. 

"She had become my lifeline. I wanted to be hers. I wanted her to feel this way about me, too."

There is great quotes through out this book, I loved them all.
