Around Midnight is the third young-adult drama by Zarina Macha.
The harder you love, the higher the stakes.
Jazz is everything to Megan Hollis. When her hands clasp the saxophone, melodies flow with each breath.
Music carries her from Copperwood to London, with university on the horizon. Set on attending London’s prestigious School of Jazz, all elements of her life harmonize.
Then she meets Vincent Turner, the mysterious guy with a dangerous reputation. Intoxicated by his possessive charms, Megan’s love shifts from melodic bliss to a dissonant nightmare.
While the future promises stardust dreams, her new relationship takes a turn for the worse. Megan becomes caught between what she wants and what everyone believes is best for her.
Will Megan learn to dance to the beat of her own rhythm?

PRAISE FOR AROUND MIDNIGHT
The words flowed like music right off the page. My artist’s soul recognized the artistic heart behind this story immediately.
What happens when a gifted music student meets a bad boy with a dangerous reputation?
Zarina Macha has achieved an excellent anti-romance which still leaves hope for real and true love in its wake...a superb and accomplished read which encompasses both an excellent dramatic story and a solid realistic message in its beautiful wordplay.
