Over the course of twelve hours, they’ll retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be.
The night will lead them to friends and family, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?
“Hello, Goodbye, & Everything In Between”, which has been optioned by TriStar Pictures for the big screen, is out in September!
The JJJ Book Club is loving all these first reads we’re getting and we have to share the latest with you all — “Everybody Knows Your Name” by Andrea Seigel and Brent Bradshaw!
In the new book from the Laggies writers, Magnolia comes from a McMansion where her leopard print-clad mother’s primary goal is snagging a spot on The Real Housewives of Orange County. Ford comes from a trailer park in middle-of-nowhere Arkansas, where his family is best known for their record number of DUIs. The two teens have nothing in common, except a dream of escaping their backgrounds and making names for themselves. That’s where Spotlight comes in, a reality TV show singing competition that’s like a cross between The Real World and American Idol.
Now Magnolia and Ford, along with a dozen other aspiring stars, are living together in a Hollywood mansion and singing their hearts out to the American public. As the weeks go by and the number of housemates dwindles, Magnolia and Ford begin to fall in love. But how genuine can that love be when camera are watching their every move, and when their pasts are catching up to them so much faster than they can run?
“Everybody Knows Your Name” is on shelves March 10th!

JJJ has something extra special for The Originals fans today!
We got our hands on an exclusive excerpt from the first novel in the highly-anticipated prequel book series!
In this sneak peek at “The Originals: The Rise,” out TOMORROW January 27, Klaus falls for a woman he can’t have! Read below!
“Her. Vivianne glowed; she pulled the light in. It was as if he’d made her appear. No matter what people whispered about the cursed fate of vampires, at that moment, Klaus felt positively blessed.
Luckiest of all, she was unchaperoned. Vivianne stood alone at the side of the high street, gazing into the window of a couturier, who boasted of having just arrived from Paris. There was no one to interfere in their conversation, unlike at that miserable engagement party.”
