Never Enough Extras...Coming Soon!

Many of you have heard about my collection of companion stories and deleted scenes that I've compiled as a bonus for readers of Never Enough (and hopefully to entice new readers who haven't yet picked up a copy of Never Enough!)

I had anticipated having this to be up by August 1st, but I'm dealing with a bit of a publication conflict on it, rearranging things a little, and so it's going to take just a little longer. But it is coming soon! So keep your eye on this blog, because I'll tell you where you can get it as soon as it is available.

If you haven't seen it on GoodReads yet, here are a few of the details:



An anthology of companion stories and deleted scenes from the young adult novel, Never Enough by Denise Jaden.

Everybody loves Marcus, Loann's slow-growing best friend in Never Enough. Reviewers are calling him "a stupendous book boy." Marcus and Loann's unique friendship is not insta-love, and this anthology opens with a little more of how their friendship began...from Marcus's point of view. Other stories follow the complicated sisterly relationship of Loann and Claire, and give a deeper view into Claire's thoughts. 


Publishers Weekly calls Never Enough "an intimate and enlightened rendering of anorexia and bulimia." Critically acclaimed young adult author CK Kelly Martin calls it "A poignant, important book...filled with hurt, heart, and personal strength.”

Delve deeper into the lives of your favorite characters from Never Enough.



I'm really excited to share these stories, and will let you know the moment they are available! Annnnd...if you haven't yet picked up a copy of Never Enough but want to, I noticed that Simon & Schuster has it marked down to $7.99 right now on their website! That's practically the cost of a specialty coffee at Starbucks! (Okay, maybe two coffees, but isn't coffee getting ridiculously expensive?!)

I'll be back next week with the YA Scavenger Hunt. Happy weekend, everybody!
