About J.M. Reep

J.M. Reep writes and teaches writing in Texas. He is the author of two young adult novels: Leah (2009) and The Spring (2008). They are novels aspire that more to Salinger than Rowling; they’re more in line with Joan of Arcadia than Gossip Girls, more in tune with The Smiths than The Jonas Brothers. These are stories that deal with those questions that are universal to young people (and all people): “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What is my place in the world?” “What does the future hold for me?” The characters of these novels grapple with these questions, and each character finds his or her own answers — just as we all must.

Awesome book! An inside look to a person struggling with shyness, and also reminds me of an autistic person. Really enjoying the book.

This book is pretty well done and a good view on the good fortunes that can happen. I particularly liked the ending:)

One of my favourites... Heartwarming, sweet and real. Also painful and also heart-breaking. Overall, it's a very dramatic book, but written-well with such skill. Leah Nells is probably one of my favourite fictional characters, beautiful yet so shy, it's unbelievable. I love it and left a mark on me.
Read it! You will not be disappointed!

An interesting book that offers a very unpopular view on shyness. I don't want to give away too much, but I really enjoyed the way the book ended. It is worth a read.
