Contrary to what the title of this post implies, I feel like I've been rained upon with unbelievable amounts of praise (from some pretty amazing sources!) I've been so excited to share these ever since I first saw them. I wasn't sure if I was allowed to yet, but I see that may of them are up on I guess it's okay!

Praise for
Never Enough

“Denise Jaden positively nails the love-hate relationship between two polar opposite sisters who share a single quest: the desire to be perfect, regardless of the cost. A compelling, often gut-wrenching coming-of-age novel, Never Enough will haunt you long after the last page.”
—From Jeannie Garsee, author of Before, After and Somebody In Between
“Denise Jaden's Never Enough is honest, gut wrenching, and oh so beautiful.  It's a book you can't wait to share.”
Eileen Cook, author of Unraveling Isobel and The Education of Hailey Kendrick
“A poignant, important book, Never Enough tackles self-esteem and body image issues while always remaining true to its three-dimensional characters. Denise Jaden has created a cliché-free zone filled with hurt, heart, and personal strength. Jaden's tender sympathy for her characters and dedication to honest storytelling shine through every page.”
C.K. Kelly Martin, author of I Know It’s Over and My Beating Teenage Heart

“Raw and unforgettable, Never Enough is an authentic portrait of a teen girl faced with an impossible situation. Loann’s relationship with her sister is beautifully drawn and heartbreaking.”
Tara Kelly, author of Harmonic Feedback and Amplified

"A poignant look at sisterly devotion and heartache, woven into a sweet tale
of first love and a girl coming into her own."
Holly Cupala, author of Tell Me A Secret and Don't Breathe a Word
I'm seriously completely bowled over by this. Many authors have told me that blurbs aren't really important, especially when it comes to selling books, but I can tell you honestly that each of these blurbs is incredibly important to me. There will be days, I'm sure, when I may get inundated with people who cannot connect to my books or my writing, and it will be so wonderful to come back to these and remember that there ARE folks out there--even industry pros--who could connect.

So thank you Jeannie, Eileen, CK, Tara, and Holly. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!


  1. Congrats on these fantastic blurbs, Denise -- I can imagine how encouraging & uplifting it is to know your work really connected with these amazing authors! :)

  2. Wow! Great blurbs Denise - you must be glowing.
