#88: The Karma Club - Jessica Brody

(Affiliate link)

Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and you’ll get what’s coming to you. But when Maddy’s long-time boyfriend gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and they wind up the hot new couple at school, it seems like Karma is on a break. So Maddy and her friends decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization for dealing with messes the universe is leaving behind. They’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place, right?

AUTHOR BIO:
 Jessica Brody knew from a young age that she wanted to be a writer. She started self "publishing" her own books when she was seven years old, binding the pages together with cardboard, wallpaper samples and electrical tape.
After graduating from Smith College in 2001 where she double majored in Economics and French and minored in Japanese, Jessica later went on to work for MGM Studios as a Manager of Acquisitions and Business Development. In May of 2005, Jessica quit her job to follow her dream of becoming a published author.
In four short years , Jessica has sold nine novels (two adult novels to St. Martin's Press and seven young adult novels to Farrar, Straus, Giroux.) THE FIDELITY FILES, her debut, released in stores (in real binding) in June of 2008 and the the follow-up, LOVE UNDER COVER in November 2009. THE KARMA CLUB, Jessica's first young adult novel released in April of 2010 and her second YA release, MY LIFE UNDECIDED hit bookstores in June 2011.
52 REASONS TO HATE MY FATHER (which was recently optioned for film) will be out in Summer 2012 and UNREMEMBERED, (also optioned for film), the first book in a new teen sci-fi series, will be released in early 2013.
Jessica's books are published and translated in over twelve foreign countries including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Indonesia, Russia, Brazil, China, Portugal, Israel, and Taiwan.
Jessica now works full time as a writer and producer. She currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Colorado.


MY OPINION:
I won all 3 books of Jessica's, and she even graciously signed and personalized them all for me. That shows what a lovely person she is.
And her writing is fun, fast-paced and entertaining! I devoured this almost 300 page book pretty fast! It was because of the great story mixed with a style of writing that just flows so easily off the page and into your imagination.  I really appreciate the message too, considering this is a novel geared for tweens/teens. I would definitely let my 15 year old daughter read it.
I haven't read 52 Reasons to Hate My Father yet, but can see why it has been slated for film, based on the writing and flow of this one.
I am now a super-fan!! I can't wait to get on the next book, so I won't..... watch for my review of My Life Undecided coming real soon.

5/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
