About this author

J.J. Howard is wearing headphones right now, most likely. She grew up in York, Pennsylvania, obsessed with music, movies, television, and pop culture. You can call her if you ever need to phone a friend for trivia on any of the above topics, but don’t ask about sports, because she is hopeless at those (along with math).
J.J. graduated from Dickinson College with a BA in English and Tiffin University with an MH in Humanities. She has been some of her students’ favorite English teacher for a quite a few years (she even has a mug somewhere to prove it). THAT TIME I JOINED THE CIRCUS is her first young adult novel.
J.J. would love to hear from her readers and is always ready to trade playlists. Visit at jjhowardbooks.com.

I was taken home from the hospital and brought directly to the The Suburbs, and there I have remained for pretty much my entire life, yet there are numerous mysteries about this way of life that I just can’t wrap my head around.
I’ll be the first to confess: I can be basic. I love Starbucks’s overpriced macchiatos, and when there’s the first sign of chill in the air, I go running for a Pumpkin S... Read more of this blog post »

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
Rate this book
Clear rating
Reading this feels a bit like hanging out with Mindy Kaling, and she's mighty funny gal. Unfortunately this came out before her eponymous show, which I adore. There are a lot of peeks inside the world of The Office, which I didn't watch, but her stor ...more

A really enjoyable and fast read. Healy does an interesting job of imagining our future--most of the book is set just over a hundred years from now. In some ways I had to wonder if the world would be so similar to ours…but there are a lot of subtle d ...more
