Meet Kimberley B Jones!

Kimberley B. Jones is a small country girl from St. George, SC. She followed her heart in college writing children books. Recently she decided to challenge herself and branch off to novels. She is your typical nomad who moves from place to place. Not by choice, but her husband serves in the military. She has a bachelors and masters in early childhood education. Kimberley is represented by Rhetaskew Publishing company and is best known for her debut novel, Our Friendship Matters.


When she is not writing, she is either thinking of another topic or reading. She loves writing , it gives her a chance to escape into another human character and express herself, other than being your typical mother and wife. If you don't want to be on her bad side, then she needs her white chocolate mocha every morning. Some days Folgers breakfast blend coffee is okay.

Meet Our Friendship Matters!

Leah and Sasha are 17-year-old friends who had been close to one another since elementary school, but as the summer approaches they find their friendship tested in ways they never anticipated.

Following graduation, Sasha’s privileged life and perception of the world around her is suddenly altered when an old childhood friend persuades her to join in a campaign against an injustice after his best friend is killed by a cop.

But joining the protest has unforeseen consequences for Sasha, distancing her from Leah, who becomes jealous of Sasha’s new friends and finds herself on the opposing side, protesting alongside her group of new white friends.

As the tension mounts between the two bitterly opposed factions, a tragedy strikes and threatens to make Sasha and Leah enemies. Can they find a way to resolve their differences, putting them to the side and learn to accept each other’s viewpoints? Or is their long friendship finished for good?

~ Excerpt ~

 

“Why are you hanging out with that boy? What have

I told you? It’s going to make Leo mad.”

“Why shouldn’t I be hanging around Ricardo?”

“Because he is bad news. You told me that he goes

downtown with those people protesting, and that’s just

asking for trouble.”

“But that doesn’t make him a bad person. His best

friend was shot and killed by a police officer when he

was coming home from basketball practice because he

was accused of robbing a store. Sooo… how does that

make him a bad person, again?”

“I understand that, honey, but you shouldn’t get

yourself involved with that,” said Mom. “So, that’s

where you went last night?”

“Mom, would you just cut it out? Ricardo isn’t like

that. Why are you judging him? Is it because he went to

a bad public school and the students’ parents don’t have

money like the parents at Chester?”

Dad slammed his cup on the dining table and stood.

“Be quiet, Sasha, and listen to your mom.”
