An Awkward Read for A Young Reader

What I Liked: The awkward love. I've always felt an odd connection to stories that feature awkward characters who do everything nerdy, and awkwardly--and mess everything up. Okay, that sounds crazy but I always found it to be more realistic than a lot of other types of love stories. Sometimes...

Mature, Clever and Witty, KEEP ME IN MIND, Stands Apart From The Rest.

A novel that transcends its intended audience, Keep Me in Mind's mature characters and realistic story make this novel a perfect read for adults and teens a like. While the story remained contemporary, and youthful, the characters were wiser and "deeper" than you could imagine. ...
