J. Mercer grew up in Wisconsin where she walked home from school with her head in a book, filled notebooks with stories in junior high, then went to college for accounting and psychology.

Have you been looking for a book whose main love story was between four friends, not their romantic relationships? Because this is that book. While each girl does have romantic prospects throughout the book, that’s not the focus. Friend" Read more of this review »

“August September A Year Later 279 305 315 “One of the secrets of life is to be honestly who you are. Who others want you to be, who you used to be, or who you may someday become . . . these are fantasies. To be honestly who you are is to give up your illusions and face today with courage.” – Bill Purdin”
