Release Day Celebration & Giveaway: This Ordinary Life by Jennifer Walkup!

Title: This Ordinary Life

Author: Jennifer Walkup

Release date: October 1st, 2015

Publisher: Luminis Books

About the Book:

Sometimes Hope is the Most Extraordinary Gift of All.

High-school radio host Jasmine Torres's life is full of family dysfunction, but if she can score the internship of her dreams with a New York City radio station, she knows she can turn things around.

That is, until her brother Danny’s latest seizure forces her to miss the interview, and she’s back to the endless loop of missing school for his doctor appointments, picking up the pieces of her mother’s booze-soaked life, and stressing about Danny’s future.

Then she meets Wes. He’s the perfect combination of smart, cute, and funny. He also happens to have epilepsy like her brother. Wes is living a normal life despite his medical issues, which gives Jasmine hope for Danny. But memories of her cheating ex-boyfriend keep her from going on a real date with Wes, no matter how many times he asks her.

Jasmine can’t control everything. Not who wins the internship, not her mother’s addiction, not her brother’s health--not even where her heart will lead her. She wishes she could just have an ordinary life, but maybe what she already has is pretty extraordinary after all.

  1. Happy book birthday, Jenn! This one sounds fantastic- I never, ever see epilepsy in book characters. What a fantastic way to touch on the complications of having it (or caring for someone who has it) without making it a Very Special Episode kind of thing. I really look forward to read this book!
