Psychic flashes, haunting visions, missing persons and visits from ghosts. That’s just their first date.
Jack has been getting on his parents’ nerves for some time. Bad enough he’s a rock musician, has crappy grades and hangs out with his “loser” friends. But Jack’s ability to predict the future — well, that just annoys the hell out of them.
Jack’s classmate, Lauren, is said to have unique abilities too. The town still talks about when she kept badgering her mother about the money in their wall. For the longest time, Lauren’s mother didn’t listen. Finally, she did and she hasn’t had to work since.
Jack would really like to connect with Lauren but can’t figure out how. She’s never looked at him twice. But when he experiences a mystifying event involving visions, voices and spectral visits, Jack figures there’s only one person to help him understand who’s calling out to him and why. Before long, Jack and Lauren are off on a road trip of discovery that could provide answers to a mystery left unsolved for twenty years. More importantly, they might even unravel the greatest mystery of all — how every so often someone will accept you for who you are.

Streetlights Like Fireworks was a fun, quick read for me! I dove right in, and never resurfaced in the real world until the last word was written on the page. You instantly connect to the characters and want to be friends with them and cheer them on through-out the entire book. They were very easy to relate to and that just made the story that much better. I enjoyed being taken on the adventure with the characters and didn't want to get off their wild ride when it ended! This is a wonderful book and such a great read for anybody and everybody!
