Tonight the Streets Are Ours

From the author of This Song Will Save Your Life comes a funny and relatable book about the hazards of falling for a person you haven't met yet.

Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she's tired of being loyal to people who don't appreciate her—including her needy best friend and her absent mom.

Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called "Tonight the Streets Are Ours," the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him.

During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn't exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn't exactly who she thought she was, either.

Why I'm Waiting:
Leila Sales' debut novel This Song Will Save Your Life was among my favourite reads of 2014 and I can't wait to see what she does next. The premise of this book sounds like it'll deliver another stellar story, and I am especially intrigued by the blogging side of the story. Any book about bloggers has me interested. Also, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. How could I possibly resists?

Tonight the Streets Are Ours hits shelves on September 15th, 2015!


  1. I love the cover! It seems really interesting too. I haven't read her other book, but I always see it at Barnes and Noble.

  2. I don't read a lot of contemporary fiction, but I really want to give the genre a fair chance before I say that I enjoy it! This book seems like a fun read! and you're right, the cover is lovely!

  3. Isn't the cover absolutely gorgeous?! You should definitely give This Song Will Save Your Life a shot, it's one of the most heart wrenching contemporaries I've ever read!

  4. It's always good to give things a go before saying no! I think that Leila Sales' first book, This Song Will Save Your Life, is a great way to get into contemporary fiction!
