“To my mind there is nothing so beautiful or so provocative as a secondhand book store...To me it is astonishing and miraculous to think that any one of us can poke among the stalls for something to read overnight--and that this something may be the sum of a lifetime of sweat, tears, and genius that some poor, struggling, blessed fellow expended trying to teach us the truth.”
Lionel Barrymore

“Easy reading is damn hard writing.”

Pratyusha Bhaskar Hello Jennifer! I just wanted to say, I finished Holding Up the Universe in one sitting and I loved it! I read ATBP and this one less than a month after releasing and I love you!! Your writing is absolutely beautiful. Please keep writing. You are a beautiful person!


Victoria Hi Jennifer! Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! I work at a public library and we are doing a book discussion on your book! I was wondering if you would be able to do a skype with our group? I loved your book and cant wait for our group to read it and be in love with it too! Have a great day or night!:) p.s sorry for all of the exclamation marks...I'm just so excited!


message 1: by Steph

Steph Thank you for the accepting my friend request. This has been the hardest year for me and my family. I lost my husband to suicide.
This book was therapeutic for my life journey. I felt exactly like
Violet at the end. All those questions of " what ifs" and "what did
I do" or "could've done" was me this year. I love the ending of finding
all of Finch's letters. JUST PERFECT!!! Thank for an AMAZING book.
I can't say it enough... THANK YOU!!! Steph
