Knee Deep by Jolene B. Perry Blog Tour [Review]


Welcome to the Knee Deep blog tour. I’m very happy to be a part of this tour today.  This is the third book I have read by Jolene B. Perry and I’m very impressed by this author and excited about her writing. If you haven’t read anything by her I recommend any of her books, especially Knee Deep, which I am featuring today with a review. Knee Deep was awesome and I hope you all will check it out. Here is a big warm welcome to Knee Deep and the awesome author who wrote it, Jolene B. Perry!



Knee Deep by Jolene B. Perry
★★★★☆

Ronnie had been in love with Shawn since they were children. Ronnie thought she had her life figured out. She thought she would be with Shawn forever and once he had moved back, their love was stronger than ever. When they began school for their senior year, Shawn changed. 

Shawn had gotten angry over trivial things and grabbed Ronnie a little too hard, which had left a bruise on her arm.  That began the slew of excuses she made for his behavior. Things between her and Shawn were trained, but ever since she had received the role for the Romeo and Juliet play, she had gotten closer to her longtime friend Luke.

I was really excited to read this book after reading Night Sky and The Next Door Boys. This book was worth every bit of my excitement and the author has not disappointed me yet. I enjoyed the story so much I had to read it in one sitting.

I honestly didn’t even read the book synopsis before I read the book. I don’t like to have stuff given away so when I got the review request from Tribute books, I just accepted it because I have loved everything I have read by the author so far. When I began reading I thought I knew where the story was going but it didn’t end up being what I thought, and I may have known that if I had read the back. I’m glad that it wasn’t what I expected and where the author did go with the story is a tough subject to write about. There are not many Young Adult authors that write realistic fiction about children/ teens going through life altering situations. I think it is great when they can do it and also make you want to keep reading, because heavier subjects can discourage some readers. The only authors I have read books by that do this well are, Lurlene McDaniel and Laurie Halse Anderson.

The author always does a wonderful job at capturing me in the story, making it impossible for me to stop reading until the book is finished. Her writing always flows so well that it is easy to just ride the words wherever they go. I look forward to getting my hands on anything else the author publishes next.

I received this book for review from Tribute Books.

  1. Wow. You just made my night :-D

    AND - I've finally found someone who rarely reads blurbs! I hate it when something in the blurb gives away the ending. Makes me C.R.A.Z.Y.

    Glad you liked!!

    1. It makes me happy that I made your night! :)

      I have started to read more blurbs since I started blogging but when I know I like an author I won't for that reason exactly! I hate having things given away, I'm not a person that reads the end of the book first or any of that. I like to be surprised and find out along the way.
