Love the cover of your new book, can't wait for it to be out on the bookshelves.
Thank you!

I love this book!

Im 14 years old and I remeber I was with my friend and we went to a bookstore because we had nothing better to do, and I picked up The Secret Year and started to read it and before i knew it I realized I was there for 2 hours just reading it. I dragged my mom the next day to buy the book and its just amazing. Its my favorite book, I just jump right into it. I honestly dont know how to explain my feelings towards it besides I absolutley love this book. Ive read it 4 times already. Its just so deep and detailed. I hope to read more of your books and see you one day when you go to a bookstore to sign. Thank you.

Loved this book from the title page!!!

Hi Jennifer,

I loved your book "the secret year." I recent ly picked it up off a discount shelf and was amazed at what I found underneath the cover...all this for a discount?!?! Recently at 32, I have been experiencing a secret year myself. Due to special circumstances my romantic endeavors are less than published and I was able to connect to this young adult story in ways I haven't connect with a book in years! For that, I owe you thanks! You story development was wonderful and I found myself really sympathizing with you characters. I look forward to reading more of your literature! Keep up the good work, you are touching lives from at least 14 to 32 :) best of luck!
