About Jo Michaels

Jo Michaels loves writing novels that make readers gasp in horror, surprise, and disbelief. While her browser search history has probably landed her on a list somewhere, she still dives into every plot with gusto, hoping "the man" will realize she's a writer and not a psychopath about to go on a rampage. Her favorite pastimes are reading, watching Investigation Discovery, and helping other authors realize their true potential through mentoring. She's penned the award-winning Pen Pals and Serial Killers series and the best-selling educational book for children, Writing Prompts for Kids, which has rocketed the kids that use it into several awards of their own.

Most of Jo's books feature the places she's lived: Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. That's given her a special amount of insight to what makes those locations tick. Her works are immersive and twisty, and she wouldn't want it any other way.

Review by: Booketta on Dec. 14, 2012 :
This is the first book of a series, Books 2 and 3 are also available. Book One is a short story. This book introduces our main character Abigale and her sworn enemy Emmett, at the end of the story we get to know more about the old woman. Although Abigale's character is developed reasonably well, I would like to know more about her parents who are also introduced and why Abigale and Emmett are enemies. We learn that they were friends and Emmett spent a lot of time playing with Abigale in her home when they were small. Kristy is Abigale's friend but apart from a brief introduction in the beginning, we don't get to see her again in this book. I did feel a little short changed as I thought the storyline could have been developed a bit more into a longer book. However, it did work out and I liked the ending, which leaves the reader ready for the next instalment.

Review by: GeneralE on June 3, 2012 :
I got this for my 15 year old son, an avid reader and aspiring writer, and he wrote the following review:

The first book of the Abigale chronicles is fabulous, filled with twists that make you want to find out what happens next. Throughout the entire book, there was only thing that I did not like. Abigale is twelve years old and five feet, five inches tall. I am fifteen and only five feet, four inches. Other than hurting my pride, Jo Michaels did a wonderful job, and I can’t wait to read the sequel.

Review by: Mike G on May 3, 2012 :
I have been downloading new books to read to my son each week. He was drawn to the book cover and asked if we could get this one. I was very hesitant as it appeared to be a book geared for a girl. This book turned out to be very easy to read and I was very surprised that I actually enjoyed this book as it reminded me of events in my childhood. I normally do not like fantasy but it helped to keep my interest and my son thought that was cool. It made him use his noggin because he kept asking me if Abigale was in a dream. If you are looking for an interesting book that will make your child have to use their imagination than I recommend you download this book. My son is already bugging me on when I can download book 2.
