Every story needs a hero. Every story needs a villain. Every story needs a secret. Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbour girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tremendous or possibly both. What really happened? Someone knows. Someone is lying.

Review quote

Praise for Wink Poppy Midnight

"Mesmerizing, suspenseful. . . . Hard to put down . . . You'll be dying to get to the end and figure out what's what. And then you'll be flipping back through to see how you missed the clues. Wink Poppy Midnight is a quick and delightful read."--The New York Daily News * "Tucholke walks a fine, spine-chilling line. . . . An eerie, tangled story with plenty of questions: Who can be trusted? Who--or what--pulls the strings? . . . The book keeps readers wondering. Nicely constructed and planned, with unexpected twists to intrigue and entertain."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Bends, inverts, and breaks fairy-tale patterns . . . Cunning . . . The narrative voices are distinct--Midnight's deeply emotional and direct, Poppy's aggressive and fierce, Wink's mystical and dreamy--and ultimately blur the line between the teens' reality and invention. The well-realized characters and intricately entwined storylines will fully envelope readers in this bewitching mystery."--Horn Book "A dark, unpredictable mystery that . . . shimmer[s] with sumptuous descriptions and complicated psychologies. . . . Occult accoutrements, descriptions of the wild landscape, and a twisting-turning plot create an uncertain atmosphere that constantly shift readers' perceptions of who is trustworthy."--Publishers Weekly "Tucholke showcases her talent for storytelling once again. . . . Unique characterization turns archetypes inside out. . . . This title will keep readers on their toes. . . . Recommended."--School Library Journal "Twisty, twirly . . . Deliciously eerie . . . with a pace that is languid yet compelling and three unforgettable characters." --BCCB "Wink Poppy Midnight features three strongly delineated first-person narrators. Dark and compelling, it challenges the reader in the best way."--Kenny Brechner, PW ShelfTalker "A timeless story of love and hate, of losing yourself in order to find yourself. From the very first riveting sentence to the last punctuation mark, Wink Poppy Midnight keeps readers entranced."--VOYA teen reviewer
