About the Author

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn't let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels, including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend. Visit Abigail online at AbigailJohnsonBooks.com and follow her on Instagram @abigailjohnsonya.

Reviews

"This is a coming-of-age story with real heart and authenticity. A must read!"-Samantha Young, New York Times bestselling author of The Fragile Ordinary and On Dublin Street, on Every Other Weekend

"A poignant, painful, and stirring story about two kids trying to navigate divorce, first love, and finding your dreams."-Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces and How to Make Friends with the Dark, on Every Other Weekend

"Every Other Weekend handles sensitive family issues with honesty, amidst the fresh, emotive backdrop of Johnson's stunning prose. Adam and Jolene spark the page with their wit. And they'll slide into your heart as they discover each other's."-Laura Taylor Namey, author of The Library of Lost Things

"Johnson beautifully evokes the tender romance that eventually builds between them [Adam and Jolene] after their first encounters, offering readers access to the two teens' inner thoughts and fragile psyches. Jolene's loneliness, especially, will break hearts... The positive, not overly simplistic resolution to the complicated story will touch readers." -Booklist

"Johnson (Even If I Fall, 2019, etc.) has written a complex and emotionally charged character-driven story that explores a variety of painfully human themes, including loss and emotional abuse. Adam's and Jolene's struggles will draw readers in, and the slow-burning romance will touch readers' hearts... Heart-wrenching and hopeful-a reminder that we can change our stories."-Kirkus Reviews

"In addition to the tender love story, the book takes on a number of important issues for young adults including divorce, loss, grief, family dynamics, relationship control, and sexual assault. The two main characters are well developed and teen readers will easily empathize with their emotions, their family conflicts, and the events that unfold in their lives... Romance fans will especially enjoy this title, as it delves into many family and relationship issues."-School Library Journal on Every Other Weekend
