Praise for The Keswick Chronicles

"I just can't bring out the words I want to express. This is a different read compared to all the other books I have read so far this year. I was captivated from the first chapter and I loved how the author started the story off. It was intriguing and beautifully well written." - Black Words White Pages


"A marvelous coming of age novel that throws together two young men who seem, at first glance, to be about as opposite as two people could be. Watching as they come together is a real treat. I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite character in Fake It - they're all grand, complex and believable characters...Jack and JJ are two of the most compelling main characters I've encountered, and their on-again, off-again romance is sweet, tender and a joy to behold. Fake It is a monumentally good coming of age novel and it's most highly recommended." - Reader's Favorite
