The Secret Hour book.

Part of Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld. She was his age, maybe a year younger. Her hair was deep red, and she was carrying a green book bag over one shoulder. Fluorescent lights buzzed overhead, their white honeycombed plastic shields newly cleaned of dead insect shapes. Rex had never seen her before, and in a school as small as Bixby High, that was unusual enough. But novelty wasn't the strangest thing about her.

Scott Westerfeld is the author of ten books for young adults, including Peeps, The Last Days, and the Midnighters trilogy. He was born in Texas in 1963, is married to the Hugo-nominated writer Justine Larbalestier, and splits his time between New York and Sydney. His latest book is Extras, the fourth in the bestselling Uglies series.

Jessica seems to be a magnet for these creatures. She must find out what her special talent is before Bixby is overrun. This was a really good beginning for the series of three books.

I've gone into a reading addiction and this was one of the series that I had high hopes for. Unfortunately, it didn't enthrall me like other series (The Uglies, Matched, etc). I guess if I was a teenager I would have loved this novel, but being in my early twenties...this just wasn't for me. The novel lacked the maturity to keep me interested and was pretty straightforward on what was going to happen.

Jessica Day moves to a new town and finds in the middle of the night (at midnight) that everything around her is frozen. At first it is fun and games, but then she is chased by monsters and is rescued by some other kids in her class. The other kids are weird and are different from Jessica. The story goes to see why she is so different from the rest and includes a few love triangles for good measure. The novel ends abruptly and at a somewhat cliffhanger. It is obvious this is going to be a series. I'm still debating at whether or not to give the series a second chance and continue reading it. My reservations are the romance moved way too quickly (not saying who cause I don't want to give away any more than that) and you never really get a feel for the characters. I never connected with Jessica and actually liked Dess better than any of them. The concept is intriguing - only a select few can move around at midnight and they each have their own special power.

Overall, if you're interested in reading a novel for teens that explores a different concept that I haven't personally seen before then try out this book. If you're looking for something a bit more deep and with more than one dimensional characters, then maybe you should only get this if really bored.

First and foremost, I'd like to say that I'm probably one of the few people in this world who is not a big fan of Westerfeld's "Uglies" Series. I don't know why, but I just really couldn't get into it much. Then again, I only read the first book- and everyone keeps pushing me to continue on with that series, telling me that it gets better. I may or may not. I don't know yet.

However, after reading The Secret Hour, the first book to Westerfeld's "Midnighters" Series, I thought this book was good- much better, in my opinion, than Uglies. Perhaps it was the story... or the unique descriptions. I can't say too much for the characters other than Dess. I didn't really find a fondness for many of the characters to be honest except for Dess- who I found quirky and interesting.
The storyline was something I found original. A secret hour in a day, really 25 hours a day, people with special abilities, unusual creatures that fill this one hour.... It was certainly a plot unlike anything else I've read before at least, and I enjoyed that.

I will continue with the series I'm sure. It's not likely a favorite- but a fast, enjoyable read nonetheless. And who knows? I may go ahead and give the "Uglies" Series another chance as well once I finish this. We'll have to see about that.

No spoilers:
This is an interesting concept but there is a disconnect between the characters that's not fully explained in this book (but may be in the next). There is still a lot more questions this book left in the end than answers and it is a bit pricey considering there are a ton of up and coming writers that are offering their books for very little costs (sometimes free) and (for the most part) are great reads.
I will read a sample and see if it grabs me but I just spent a ton of money on Westerfield's Uglies series so I may hold off. This is why the 3 stars...because if it completely drew me in, I would be buying the second book without hesitation rather than checking out the sample first.

I have to admit, lately my forays into the YA world have not really panned out, so I started this book with no small amount of trepidation. Now that I have finished, I truly regret not buying the whole trilogy at once! While the main plot definitely tied up nicely, there is enough of a cliffhanger that I can't wait to start the sequel!

I loved the premise of a secret 25th hour in the day - I know there are definitely days when I have wished for just a little more time in the day (or even just an extra hour's worth of sleep), and who hasn't wished for superpowers, too? In Bixby, OK a select group of high schoolers experience just that, every single day. Westerfield combines these wishes into a wonderful blend of fantasy novel, suspenseful scares (these high schoolers aren't the only ones who get to enjoy this mystical hour) and familiar growing-up woes (curfews, moving to a new town) all mesh into a completely creative new whole. With the magic of thirteen, the author peppers the book with thirteen-letter words, offering a richer vocabulary to his readers than many novels targeted towards adult audiences. It was also completely age appropriate and a total page-turner. I really enjoyed it!

This book has a very imaginative paranormal premise, and it was enjoyable to read; I finished it in two sittings. I love the idea of a hidden hour after midnight where only a select few can visit, and the continuing threads of mystery and “what’s going on?” kept me reading. The characters aren’t all best buddies, but are unique individuals with their own motivations.
