Wow, thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

In writing THOJD, I was inspired by my own struggles with mental illness and the challenges I’ve seen family members face over the years. When I became a high school teacher, I saw the teenage experience in a new light—to be facing things like depression, the loss of a loved one, and other “grown-up” problems reminded me all over again how tough it is to simply be a teenager.

As a debut author, I’m so happy to share Jane’s story with readers like you and see that it’s having an impact. It’s been thrilling, exciting, and terrifying. Kind of like a roller coaster. Also like a roller coaster, I’ve found myself whooping uncontrollably every so often.

Thanks again for your kind words!

“Oh yeah, Burgerville's history will make you rethink everything you know about the past. And reality for that matter”
Michael Belanger

“When someone dies, we spend so much time looking for an explanation. The rest of the time we spend making sure we won't forget them. So we build statues. Hold memorials. Visit graves. All of these physical markers that make it impossible to forget. But what if it's the opposite? What if the only way we can really remember is if we stop looking to the past? Maybe then they'll become more them and less us.”
Michael Belanger

“And most of all, Jane, fuck you for leaving me here alone. For showing me happiness and then taking it all away.”
Michael Belanger
