In a small hospital town, a trio of teens rebel against their fatal diagnosis of XP, an allergy to sunlight, with late night Parkour, an extreme sport of daredevil risks. On a random summer night, while scaling a building like any other, the three happen to peer into an empty apartment and glimpse an older man with what looks like a dead girl. A game of cat-and-mouse ensues that escalates through the underground world of hospital confinement, off-the-grid sports, and forbidden love. Allie, who can never see the light of day, discovers she’s the lone key to stopping a human monster.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dangerously addictive, breathtakingly beautiful, terminally awesome.” Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author
What We Saw at Night is an engaging blend of real-world drama involving a life-and-death illness and a whodunit thriller. Imagine John Green’s recent The Fault in Our Stars in a mash-up with a Nancy Drew mystery. Plus some roof jumping and wall scaling.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“A contemporary thriller whose tension and excitement are tempered by coincidences, near misses, and credulity-stretching assumptions.” Publishers Weekly
What We Saw at Night combines exhilaration, fatalism, and mystery in a gripping novel.” BookPage
“The fast pace is set from the beginning with Juliet’s dazzling jump across the buildings…Recommended for readers who enjoy a unique twist on realistic fiction.” VOYA
“This latest from Mitchard is quickly paced and intricately plotted, with flares of humor cobbled into the dialogue…The suspense will keep [readers] engrossed.” Kirkus Reviews
