Reviews

"Dry, witty, and compulsively readable, this debut, told through Jane's journal entries, is by turns funny and truly emotional."
-- Booklist, starred review

"Resplendent with sardonic wit...this debut novel is at turns wickedly funny and thought-provoking. Character-driven, humorous and deceptively profound." -- Kirkus

"
[Nice Try, Jane Sinner] is witty with a fresh narrative voice. It is rare to find a YA book that discusses faith and religion, but Oelke handles Jane's religious questioning in an authentic way...Readers will enjoy rooting for her on House of Orange and in life."
-- School Library Journal

"
Debut novelist Oelke has created a complex and entertaining heroine in Jane, who narrates in sharp-edged, caustically funny journal entries."--Publishers Weekly

"Get ready for the raunchiness, drama and cringe-worthy obsession that comes with reality TV in this cheeky Canadian import."--BCCB
