STATS

Check it out at Simon Pulse

Growing up as the daughter of con artists, Chatine has always known a life of hardship. But once upon a time, as a young and innocent girl new to the capital city of Vallonay, Chatine dreamed of a different life. She dreamed of an escape from the rough streets of the Frets. Honest work for an honest chance. That’s all she wanted. To do her duty as a loyal member of the Third Estate and one day win the Ascension that would take her far away from her parents and their crooked lifestyle.

But when her father coerces her into taking part in his latest con, Chatine finds herself embroiled in a plot that will send her on a one-way path toward a future she never wanted and a destiny she’s been running from her entire life.

Jessica works full time as a writer and producer. She currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Colorado.

REVIEW:
Chatine.
What a girl.
I wanted to keep reading. I wanted to know where she went next and what happened along the way. I could literally read about her all day, following where she went and what she got up to.
She's clever, and you know she is a good girl. You see where she is gonna go with her decisions though. Will she get through it?
Yup, I want to read more for sure!!
A great intro into the first book in the series.


4/5

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
