Praise For My Books

  • One A Day Y.A.

    I read this story and my heart hurt and my stomach got those little butterflies of discovery and I loved everything about it. I want more books like this one. I want more short stories like this one. Beautiful and anything but simple, this story touched me and hit all the right notes.

    “The best thing about Hot Ticket, however, is the plot. It’s a mystery concerned with exactly the kinds of things that its audience cares about. It explores ideas of popularity and exclusion, of peer influence and self-esteem, and does it in a way that can’t help but hold the reader’s attention.”

    “The whole mystery of who the sender of the hot tickets is was well done. Just as Juliet’s clues and evidence kept her changing who she thought it was, the reader is kept uncertain as well.”

    “I also think the concept of the tickets is a stroke of genius. There have been a lot of stories about popularity written for this age group, but the idea of an actual ticketing system is a clever – and cruel – way to highlight who is hot and who is not. The ticketing system gave the author a lot of interesting scenarios to play with, and brought new life to an often overused topic.”

    Effie at the Wedding is not just for the YA crowd, but also for anyone who has ever wallowed in self-pity, and then had to discover a reason to get off the pot.”
