Maverick Anderson, football star, attentive student, and all ‘round good guy is finally free of the toxic influence of his former girlfriend Jo, or so he thinks. Jo is far from giving up on their romance. She’s convinced that they are meant to be together. Maverick just needs a few reminders and she’s ready to accommodate. The first plan on Jo’s agenda is to get rid of that silly, stupid Carly who has Maverick’s attention at the moment. Jo is certain her friend Lizzy will do anything Jo has in mind. Her other friends wouldn’t dare refuse her bidding. Jo was too much fun to ignore. If they weren’t so lame, though. Their idea of fun on a Friday night was to go to a stupid movie about a stupid dead rock star. No way could she sit through that sober. As Jo devises a plan to stock her truck with beer and pot, Maverick and Carly plan an innocent evening with their own movie-going friends, unaware of the events awaiting them.

A Rainy Night in Georgia: Teens Interrupted 1 by K. C. Sprayberry has an important message for young adult readers. Drinking and driving, driving and texting, or driving and talking on the phone are all recipes for disaster. When Jo and her friends heighten the danger by refusing to wear their seat belts, their rebellious actions earn them the worst-case scenario. We read of newsworthy vehicular tragedies every day and Sprayberry brings this reality to life on the pages of her haunting young adult novel. A Rainy Night in Georgia is a vivid, age-appropriate story for every teen reader.
