“It’s not only Gus and Hazel who have the rights to have an Okay? Okay. right? Because Rico and Jhing who started online… They also have one. Leche! Leche. Their’s is even more intense because of the exclamation point. Leche forever!”
A writer. A weird stranger. A lot of little conversations. An online understanding. Every night. 23:11.
One night, at exactly 11:11 in the evening, a stranger sent Jhing Blanco a friend request on Facebook. From then on, every night at the exact same time, this stranger keeps trying to get her attention. No matter how much Jhing ignores him, no matter how many times she left him on seen, no matter how cold she is towards him… The two strangers gradually became each other’s daily dose of 11:11.
This is an Epistolary novel—which means that a novel is written in form of letters, newspaper clippings, texts, or journal entries; and in this case, 23:11 uses a facebook messenger format.
Rico: Just like this ah!
Rico: Say something to our readers, Jhing! 😀
Rico: Something like, “Rico is soooo handsome!”
Rico: Ouch. (TT^TT)
There are NO narrations in this novel… not until the second book, that is.
