SummaryAdd a Summary
Sabine isn’t like anyone else. For as long as she can remember, she’s had two lives. Every twenty-four hours she ‘Shifts’, living each day twice. In one life, Sabine has everything: popular friends, expensive clothes, perfect grades, and the guy everyone wants. In the other, Sabine’s family struggles with finances, and she and her friends are considered rebels. But then she meets Ethan. He’s gorgeous, challenging, and he makes her feel like no one ever has before.
All Sabine really wants is the chance to live one life. When it seems like this might finally be possible, Sabine begins a series of dangerous experiments to achieve her goal. But is she willing to risk everything—including the one person who might actually believe her?
For Sabine, the 18-year-old protagonist at the center of ONE PAST MIDNIGHT by Jessica Shirvington, parallel universes --- or lives --- are a reality, and there’s nothing fantastic about it.
Each night at one past midnight, she “shifts” into another world, one where she lives a whole separate life from the one she fell asleep in. There, she relives the same day twice but as almost different people. In one life, she hails from Wellesley, Massachusetts and is a privileged and beloved daughter and girlfriend. In her other, she lives in Roxbury, just outside of Boston, and is rebellious and misunderstood by struggling parents. To some, a life twice lived might seem lucky, but Sabine does not count herself as remotely fortunate. She lives a double nightmare. And one that offers no hope of escape. She feels as if she can never truly be herself, and each day she has to be careful to hide any evidence of her two lives, making sure to be entirely two different people and not allowing herself to confide in anyone. However, after an accident just after her 18th birthday causes her to see some differences in the shift between lives, she realizes that there may be something she can do about her unfortunate predicament.
