Marit Weisenberg's The Insomniacs is “a deeply beautiful story of yearning, heartache, trauma, and love” (Jennifer Niven, #1 New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places) about two teens who discover the secrets of their neighborhood after everyone else turns out the lights. Ingrid can’t sleep. She can’t remember, either. A competitive diver, seventeen-year-old Ingrid is haunted by what she saw at the pool at a routine meet, before falling off the high dive and waking up concussed. The only thing she remembers about the moment before her dive is locking eyes with Van—her neighbor, former best friend, and forever crush—kissing his girlfriend on the sidelines. But that can’t be all. Then one sleepless night, she sees Van out her window…looking right back at her. They begin not sleeping together by night, still ignoring each other at school by day. Ingrid tells herself this is just temporary, but soon, she and Van are up every night piecing her memory back together. As Van works through his own reasons for not being able to sleep, they’re both pulled into a mystery that threatens to turn their quiet neighborhood into a darker place than they realized. A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Insomniacs is romantic, mysterious, and addictive, with enough twists to keep you up all night. Tara Goedjen, author of The Breathless
The Insomniacs is a deep dive into the inner workings of anxiety and how pressure and past trauma can swallow us up. And then, outside of that intimate internal with the very human Ingrid, the external world is alive with the complex stories and pasts in a neighborhood and friend groups and teams. The interweaving is intricate and realistic. The romance is palpable. Weisenberg does not shy away from the tough topics, and everything about it feels real and raw. Bonnie Pipkin, author of Aftercare Instructions
The Insomniacs totally captures the itchy thrash of insomnia, and the secret exhilaration that comes from staring into the darkness to find someone staring back. And if that someone is hot, well, then...Not surprisingly, I stayed up way too late to finish this book! Kate Williams, author of The Babysitters Coven
The Insomniacs is a novel about what we see and what we think we see—and what we remember and what we can’t bear to remember. It’s about the things that frighten us in our own neighborhoods, and about wanting someone who is so close and yet feels impossibly far away. It’s a novel about love and secrets and bridging the divide between. Weisenberg speaks so beautifully to the risks and dangers of all sorts of yearning—readers will want to embrace her heroine. Peternelle van Arsdale, author of The Beast Is an Animal
The Insomniacs is romantic, mysterious, and addictive, with enough twists to keep you up all night.” Tara Goedjen, author of The Breathless
