Reviews

"Jackson offers more here than a great plot with relatable, memorable characters and crazy storylines. This cleverly crafted, original tale centers on racism and the dichotomy of the South, as well as complicated familial relationships and elderly care. In other words, she writes fictional tales about real life."--Fredericksburg.com
"Beautifully written, fascinating and deep, The Opposite of Everyone is another must-read novel by Jackson... Jackson has done a phenomenal job of weaving the past with the present and unfolding the story layer after layer. This is a masterfully written tale that readers cannot put down."--RT Book Reviews (top pick), THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"Leia, a self-proclaimed superhero-comics dork, narrates this light-dark Southern story of family, race, and belonging with affection, humor, and well-timed profanity, bound to please fans of the best-selling author's six previous novels.... Both literary and women's fiction readers will appreciate Leia's smart/sassy narrative."--Library Journal (starred review)
"The Almost Sisters is a book only Joshilyn Jackson could have written... I was swept up by her inimitable voice from the very first page: she deftly combines such unexpected subjects as superheroes, single motherhood, race, and the impact of long-buried secrets."--Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Liar, Temptress, Solider, Spy
"In a story of incredible love and bravery, [Jackson] lasers through the weathered grace and mossy tradition of the contemporary south to explode its comic book dualism with blistering genius...Imagine Flannery O'Connor in a Wonder Woman suit, and you'll get close to the big heart of this brilliant book."--Lydia Netzer, author of Shine Shine Shine and How to Tell Toledo from the Night Sky
"Jackson delivers another quirky, Southern-based, character-driven novel that combines exquisite writing, vivid personalities, and imaginative storylines while subtly contemplating race, romance, family, and self. A searing yet ultimately uplifting look at broken people who heal themselves and each other through forgiveness, love, and the power of stories."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review), THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"The unconventional characters in Jackson's books often provide thought-provoking studies of love and loyalty; this must-read also contemplates the transformative power of storytelling."--New York Times Book Review, THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE
"Jackson has written another spirited page-turner... A satisfying, entertaining read from an admired writer who deserves to be a household name. "--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Almost Sisters
"Only Joshilyn Jackson can present such serious issues with so much humor and humanity, making us consider just how far we might go to protect the ones we love."--Brunonia Barry, NY Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader & The Fifth Petal
"A vibrant, sharp and humorous read, brimming with relatable subplots, high-energy scenes and overt superhero references... The author deftly succeeds in writing a book within a book, each one beautifully complementing the other."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Witty, cleverly constructed and including a truly surprising twist, Someone Else's Love Story turns out to be a nuanced exploration of faith, family and the things we do for love."--People (3 1/2 stars), SOMEONE ELSE'S LOVE STORY
