Halfway There is a cute, quick short story that picks up halfway between Falling from the Sky and Crash Landing, a series that follows Ridge McCoy and how he navigates his new relationship with Micah Youngblood, the boy who figuratively brought him back to life after he struggled when his father died in a plane crash.
I loved catching up with Ridge and Micah in Halfway There as they take a short New Year’s vacation to none other than Sierra Springs, which happens to be the setting of Breaking Saint Jude, a book I recently read and loved by Nikki. I loved this! It’s like when two great books meet each other, and you’re reminded how awesome both are. I giggled excitedly with the cameo of Max and Jude (even though they remain anonymous to Ridge and Micah), and now I really, really, want a story to feature all of them. Nikki has a way with crossing over characters naturally, and it’s such a treat to experience.
If you haven’t read any of Nikki’s books yet, you should! She writes such a variety of contemporary YA novels that I feel like there’s something for everyone. LGBT boyXboy, clean romance, surfers and sunshine, and even boy bands and adventurous summers.
I highly recommend you read Falling from the Sky before trying out Halfway There. If you’ve read Falling from the Sky, then what are you waiting for? Also, read Breaking Saint Jude while you’re at it.
Nikki Godwin is a YA/NA/LGBT author. She can’t live without Mountain Dew, black eyeliner, and music by Hawthorne Heights. When not writing, she internet-stalks her favorite bands and keeps tabs on surf competitions. Her favorite surfer is Gabriel Medina. If you ever get her started on surfing or music, she’ll never shut up. You’ve been warned.
