About the Author

Growing up in her rural East Texas hometown, JILL S. ALEXANDER went to work at age 12 bussing tables at the local truck stop. There, she met folks from all walks of life whose eccentricities color her work today. Jill has survived a tornado and being caught on fire. She hates whining but loves fancy shoes, muscle cars, and Johnny Cash - preferably all three at once. Jill taught high school English and Spanish before deciding to take a chance on writing full-time. A native of Texas, she lives in Tyler, Texas, with her husband and son. Her next book, Paradise, will be available from Feiwel and Friends in Summer 2011.

Reviews

โ€œA refreshing picture of teen angst, with realistic dialogue and memorable characters.โ€โ€”"School Library Journal", Starred Review
โ€œFirst-time novelist Alexander offers a delightful, funny story about teenagers living in a West Texas farming community. . . . Austinโ€™s year of added responsibility and independence make for a substantive, enjoyable coming-of-age novel that will speak to rural and urban readers alike.โ€โ€”"Booklist"
โ€œAlexanderโ€™s debut is marked by a colorful supporting cast, fresh dialogue and Southern personality, which contribute to an entertainingly theatrical vision of smalltown life. The strong but precarious mother-daughter bond is well paired to the themes of finding inner strength and self-acceptance and letting go of the past.โ€โ€”"Publishers Weekly"ย A Texas Lone Star Reading List Pick
