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 only to open a dog daycare. She wishes she were an expert linguist, is pretty much a professional with regards to competitive dance hair (bunhawk, anyone?), and enjoys exploring with her husband—though as much as she loves to travel, she’s also an accomplished hermit. Perfect days include cancelled plans, rain, and endless hours to do with what she pleases. Find her on Facebook and Instagram @jmercerbooks or online at www.jmercerbooks.com.

Or edit :) Sometimes a brain is worn out and needs a little break. I think of writer's block more in that way, and usually after reading a good book or two I'm re-energized to get back to my work-in-progress. If it's more that I'm stuck, I'll plot graph the draft again and usually find the reason - then even if I don't see the solution right away, at least I have a problem to solve.(less)

Solid all around. A terribly sad story, so read it when you're ready for that, but definitely a worthy read! You will especially like it if you're into podcasts and true crime, but I don't see why everyone else wouldn't be glad to have read it too.

"I received this book for free from the YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Can the kids find out who is stealing from the other passengers?

“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”
