Jennifer's newest novel, THOUSAND WORDS comes out May 21, 2013!
But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look.
Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.
So, hey Jennifer! Have you noticed how many awesome people share your name? Okay. Tell us. Did you have a best friend in high school? If you did, are you still in touch in any way? How involved are you in each other’s lives now?
JB: Yes, though she moved away years ago. She now lives in Alabama—a long way from Missouri—and we only see each other once every few years or so, and it’s always in drive-by form. She once drove to Kansas City to celebrate the launch of my first book; I once drove to the airport to hug her in between connecting flights; and we met up for a couple hours at Disney World last year. We text every so often (usually silly stuff), and we keep in touch via Facebook when we can.
...But it’s never enough. I miss her every day.
Facebook is really great for keeping up with friends. Not quite the same, but still, contact.If applicable tell us about a time when a best friend betrayed you. How old were you? Did you ever make up? How did you handle it?
Aww. That's so sweet.If you never had a betrayal or fight, what is something your best friend did for you that probably no other person would ever do?
Coolest thing EVER. She makes the Best Friend Honor Roll list. So tell us, what did you love most about you teenage best friend?
I totally get that. I would be jealous too! I was never the girl who got flowers in high school. So what did you learn from your best teen friend?
JB: Forgiveness. She always forgave me, even when she shouldn’t have.
Yeah. She's definitely on the honor roll list! She sounds like an amazing best friend! Both of you are truly lucky to have each other. Yay for girl love! Girl Power!
