Greg Howard grew up near the coast of South Carolina, or as he fondly refers to it, “the armpit of the American South.” By the time he could afford professional therapy and medication, the damage had already been done.

Writing Your Own Story (Sort Of) by Greg Howard

POSTED ON JANUARY 8, 2019 on School Library Journal’s Teen Librarian Toolbox

Let me start by clearly stating that THE WHISPERS is first and foremost, a work of fiction. I’m reluctant to even call it semi-autobiographical. With that said, there’s no doubt that I left a lot ofmeon the page.Sort of.

I loved this book and its wonderfully flawed characters! The friends seem so true to life, and the beach setting serves as its own character. Melissa Chambers's "Love Along 30A" series is fun, sexy, breezy, and cozy. Get them all!
