Jo Knowles

“Love can be a lot like a soap opera. Pearl (aka Bean) has watched enough hours of the TV version to know all about sudden plot twists and dark secrets... But this is real life, not a TV drama, and some things are too important to lose.”
“One pregnancy. Four friends. It all adds up to a profound time of change in this poignant, sensitively written YA novel.”
(The story continues, with Living With Jackie Chan)
“An unflinching story of a troubled friendship -- and one girl’s struggle to come to terms with secrets and shame and find her own power to heal.”
