I’m Not Dying with You Tonight was chosen as the next Big Library Read by a popular vote of readers, librarians, teachers and students worldwide.

I’m Not Dying with You Tonight follows two girls with two very different backgrounds who must rely on each other to get through the violent race riot that has enveloped their city. When both girls attend the Friday night football game, what neither expects is for everything to descend into sudden mass chaos. Chaos born from violence and hate. Chaos that unexpectedly throws them together. They aren’t friends and hardly understand the other’s point of view. But none of that matters when the city is up in flames, and they only have each other to rely on if they’re going to survive the night.
