The Brittanys: A Novel Cover Image

Published: Vintage - June 15th, 2021

"Set in the halls of middle school and the cafeteria of high school with the angst of trying to fit in, and the change of friendships that were previously defined by neighborhoods and girlhood commonality, The Brittany’s reminded me of being adolescent, wanting to be liked and realizing things change though we don’t want them to.  This will take us back to junior high and remind us of raising our own daughters in the 90’s.  Universal and heartfelt, this was a great summer read!"

"Did you ever want to be in a rock band?  Love and miss the 1970’s rock and roll?  Get your cutoff jeans, leather flip flops and live vicariously in the studio with Billy, Daisy and the band as they create, love, hate, grow, hurt and deal with the thing called life.  An easy read, a page turner and my top pick for summer 2019! 

Good artists know how to leave an audience screaming for more.  Taylor Reid Jenkins has done just that!  Brava!!"
