About the Author

JOSHILYN JACKSON is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of ten other novels, including gods in Alabama and Never Have I Ever. Her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. A former actor, Jackson is also an award-winning audiobook narrator. She lives in Decatur, Georgia, with her husband and their two children.


Inevitable, surprising, and beautifully true in every sense of the word. I loved this book, and you will too.

-- "Sara Gruen, New York Times bestselling author"

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"

Beautifully written, fascinating, and deep, The Opposite of Everyone is another must-read novel by Jackson. From the first page, readers are drawn into the story...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 (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick!)"

The smart-ass, no holds-barred narration by whip-smart Paula/Kali... should please the many fans of Jackson's snappy writing style.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

Jackson delivers another quirky, Southern-based, character-driven novel that combines exquisite writing, vivid personalities, and imaginative story lines 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)"

Joshilyn Jackson's abilities extend beyond her writing-insightful, funny, and poignant-to her narration. She breathes fiery life into Paula, exposing the vulnerability that gives context to the character's self-protective sarcasm. Entertaining on every level, Jackson portrays a variety of original, flawed characters-including Paula's ex-love, Birdwine, who is a private eye, and mystical Kai, a storyteller. In addition, she creates touching scenes and builds suspenseful twists, capturing the listener's complete attention and admiration. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.

-- "AudioFile"

The voice is hard-boiled and the plot engrossing in Jackson's new novel, a realistic, contemporary story with a mystery driving it...Although Paula is rough and reckless, Jackson makes her an easy character to root for by vividly depicting her inner struggle and past. This is an excellent read with a fresh take on the detective genre.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Jackson excels at weaving a wholly absorbing story with vivid characters...[and] some affecting points about the importance of the stories we tell to each other and to ourselves.
