Elizabeth Yu-Gesualdi Thank you so much Jenna and Tammy! I am so very happy that you both enjoyed reading Broken Road. I truly appreciate your kind words and support. Also, thanks for spreading the word about it! I've been perusing through many of the lists categorized under NA and YA and have come across some of your comments regarding my novel. I may have to hire the two of you as my personal publicists! Thank you again.
