I'm Not Dying with You Tonight by Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal
"An absolute page turner, I’m Not Dying with You Tonight is a compelling and powerful novel that is sure to make an impact. "—Angie Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of The Hate U Give
Over the course of one night, two girls with two very different backgrounds must rely on each other to get through the violent race riot that has enveloped their city.
Lena has her killer style, her awesome boyfriend, and a plan. She knows she’s going to make it big. Campbell, on the other hand, is just trying to keep her head down and get through the year at her new school.
When both girls attend the Friday-night football game, what neither expects is for everything to descend into sudden mass chaos. Chaos born from violence and hate. Chaos that unexpectedly throws them together.
They aren’t friends. They hardly understand the other’s point of view. But none of that matters when the city is up in flames, and they only have each other to rely on if they’re going to survive the night.
