Blackout by Dhonielle Clayton & Tiffany D. Jackson &  digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Six critically acclaimed, bestselling, and award-winning authors bring the glowing warmth and electricity of Black teens in love to this charming, hilarious, and heartwarming novel that shines a bright light through the dark.

A summer heatwave blankets New York City in darkness. But as the city is thrown into confusion, a different kind of electricity sparks…

A first meeting. 

Long-time friends. 

Bitter exes. 

And maybe the beginning of something new.

When the lights go out, people reveal hidden truths. Love blossoms, friendship transforms, and new possibilities take flight.

Beloved authors—Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk, and Nicola Yoon—celebrate the beauty of six couples and the unforgettable magic that can be found on a sweltering starry night in the city.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“INSTANT 5 STARS 😭 very very beautifully written interconnected short stories set in different places in ny during a power outage. ALL the stories are so so sweet i even cried at some bcs of how cozy and cute they were. i like how they're not all 100% romance love, but also self love and acceptance which imo are so perfectly gorgeously written. it was such a light read and i flew through it so fast but not a SINGLE dull moment. COUGH NEW ADDITION TO COMFORT READS COUGH”

“If there's one thing about me, it's that I love interconnected short stories. For starters; this book was adorable. I was kicking my feet reading every story! And it managed to get me to like second chance romance! (which is usually my least favorite trope, but the way it was written here I was just rooting for the couple to get back together!) Each story had their own unique characters and their own unique romances. I also really enjoy how some explored queer themes. And I really love how these stories were genuinely interconnected; whether it was through a character through one story being related to another or being friends with another or having just passed them on the street, I thought it was rly cute. And them all being on the same quest (getting to the party) but each being on a different personal journey getting there. And it all taking place during a blackout caused by a heatwave? Chef's kiss. This was such a wonderful summer read :)”
