"This achingly mysterious romance delves into the complexities of trusting yourself after being betrayed by the person you loved the most. Marit Weisenberg shines a bright light into a dark corner and reminds us all of the power of love." --Liara Tamani, author of Calling My Name
"The Insomniacs is a heady blend of the vague menace reminiscent of the Hitchcock classic Rear Window and the summery nostalgia and romance in The Summer I Turned Pretty. Ideal for readers who like their protagonists to have a lot of chemistry and their suspense to have tension thick enough to cut with a knife. Highly recommended." --MissPrint.com
"A bittersweet, mysterious romance that will leave readers yearning to discover the secrets of the seemingly normal cul-de-sac." --School Library Journal "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 Cold Is In Her Bones "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 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
"At times, this book reads like a languid dream, an apt mood for a book about teens who can't sleep. It was different in pace and tone and incredibly intriguing. It's definitely a deep and complex novel that takes on heavy teen issues with the gravitas I think that they deserve." --TeenLibrarianToolbox.com "The Insomniacs is romantic, mysterious, and addictive, with enough twists to keep you up all night." --Tara Goedjen, author of The Breathless
