Delia (aka Delilah Darkwood) and Josie (aka Rayne Ravenscroft) are best friends and co-hosts of their public access horror show Midnite Matinee. Delia, the show's creator and horror maven, does Matinee because she secretly hopes her dad (who abandoned Delia and her mom when Delia was about six and instilled in Delia a love for so-bad-they're-funny horror movies) will see them. Josie does the show because she has always dreamed of being on tv, and working on the show is great experience for her. But, getting a Food Network internship when she goes away for college would be even better. But, Josie takes her responsibility as Delia's biffle seriously, and Josie isn't sure whether or not Delia can handle being "abandoned" again. Making the decision to move away for college even harder is Lawson, the boyfriend who is super sweet, super nice, super perfect, and supes everything, who is determined to stay in Jackson, too. But... maybe... driving down to Orlando for ShiverCon the summer after graduation will make Josie's decision easier-- especially if they get to have a Very Important Meeting with Jack Devine, horror host extraordinaire.
Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee is a book about friendship (also Lawson and Josie's relationship is adorable. Zentner does romance fantastically, especially for a straight dude.) and learning how to let friends go and how to not let yourself be bombasted by the experience.
I enjoyed Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee. It's definitely funny, and I loved all the extreme similes that Josie and Delia say!
