Product description

Three teenagers with XP (a life-threatening allergy to sunlight) are a species unto themselves. As seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Allie Kim, they roam the silent streets, looking for adventure while others sleep. On a random summer night, while scaling a building like any other, the three happen to peer into an empty apartment and glimpse an older man with what looks like a dead girl. A game of cat-and-mouse ensues that escalates through the underground world of hospital confinement, off-the-grid sports and forbidden love.

Dark, suspenseful and quietly beautiful." --Melissa Walker, author of "Small Town Sinners" "The plot is intricately woven, with twists at every turn. Mitchard's exemplary writing takes a masterful detour into young adult territory." --Karin Slaughter, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Criminal ""Allie's... voice [is] honest and real...fascinating looks at both Parkour and a disease so unconventional that it turns the lives of patients and families upside down." --"Booklist, "High Demand Review ""What We Saw at Night" is an engaging blend of real-world drama involving a life-and-death illness and a whodunit thriller. Imagine John Green's recent "The Fault in Our Stars" in a mashup with a Nancy Drew mystery.
