Book Launch with Jessica Pennington
Book Launch for St. Joseph author Jessica Pennington's new YA novel, Love Songs & Other Lies
Friday, April 27th, 6:30 PM
Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rock stars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she'll also be sharing the bus with Cam, her first love, and her first heartbreak. (Macmillan, $17.99, releases 4/24.)
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She's a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten--when she sought publication for her poem about a tree--Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town (St. Joseph!) suspiciously similar to the one in her novel, with her husband Josh and their son, Rory.
Love Songs & Other Lies is her debut novel.
