Reviews

“Fans of Junie B. Jones will enjoy this work for its authentic look at middle school friendship. A great companion to James Patterson and Chris Tebbetts’ Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life.”

“Jane in Bloom is a gentle novel about love and loss and that special connection you only share with a sister. This book will make you cry. It will also make you smile and root for Jane as she makes her way through the most difficult time of her life. Deborah’s prose is brilliant and honest”

"Teens who enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars...should find plenty to relate to in this novel about different forms of communication and finding confidence despite setbacks."
