This is the perfect book for August. A little sweaty, a little swoony, with short-and-sweet stories that all come together in the end at a glorious Brooklyn block party, it's a beautifully diverse gathering of Black teen love stories framed by a city-wide power outage.  Whether you're 13 or 43 or 103, treat yourself to some summery thrills.

“It’s HOT in the summer in NYC when there’s a blackout. A group of friends are two by two making their way across the city to a block party. And there’s love all around. Six award-winning authors worked together to create these loosely related stories. I highly recommend!”
— Jennifer Jones, Bookmiser, Roswell, GA


Six critically acclaimed, bestselling, and award-winning authors bring the glowing warmth and electricity of Black teen love to this interlinked novel of charming, hilarious, and heartwarming stories that shine a bright light through the dark.

A summer heatwave blankets New York City in darkness. But as the city is thrown into confusion, a different kind of electricity sparks...

A first meeting.

Long-time friends.

Bitter exes.

And maybe the beginning of something new.

When the lights go out, people reveal hidden truths. Love blossoms, friendship transforms, and new possibilities take flight.

Beloved authors--Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk, and Nicola Yoon--celebrate the beauty of six couples and the unforgettable magic that can be found on a sweltering starry night in the city.
