I'm a big fan of both Jenn Hubbard and her novels. If you haven't read THE SECRET YEAR and TRY NOT TO BREATHE, I recommend you remedy that immediately.
As it is for all of us who love an author's work, it's with eager anticipation that we await the arrival of their latest novel. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one and once I did, I couldn't put it down until I reached the end. Because it truly would have hurt to stop. I instantly connected with the main character, Maggie, not through shared experience, but through her love of the outdoors and wild mushrooms. At the same time, my heart strings were pulled as I followed and cheered Maggie along her emotional journey.
Contemporary YA novels are my favorite, and I've read loads of them. This one sits at the top of my list for freshness and heart.
