REVIEW:

"First off I thought [The Other Side of Life] was extremely original. So many books these days feel like copies of previous books and have unoriginal concepts."
-- Review on one of Jess's books / customer email from U.K., Feb 2011

"Catholic School Girls Rule = Awesome Book!!"
-- Michael (via email / NYC), June 2012

"I also grew up Catholic and I'm Pro-Choice. Keep up the good work and I'll be keeping an eye out for your provocative writing. I really enjoy your writings."
-- Bluegrass/Folk Fan (via Google+), July 2012

"l just read 'Catholic Schoolgirls Rule' and really loved it! l found it really well written and engaging, and was amazed learning that some of what l like has names..."
-- Ms. MNS (via email / Australia), June 2014

EXCERPT:

The Catholic Church was opposed to birth control pills; it was a mortal sin to use birth control pills. Chantal's case was alright, because her pills had been prescribed for a medical condition. But it still irritated her that contraception, homosexual behavior, pre-marital, as well as extramarital sex were perceived to be immoral and shameful.

It irritated her that the religion she was born into could have so much of a say in a person's personal, sexual preferences.

Chantal's spirit was like a ticking timebomb. During her catechism class, she thought of the guy in the blue Speedos, then of Aisyah, with her dark-lined expressive eyes and all-round sassiness. She hardly knew the guy, but she'd always been a little intimidated, yet attracted, to both the Speedos dude and Aisyah.

She tried sorting out her feelings. She lusted after the Speedos guy more--it was a simpler emotion to define. It was more complicated with Aisyah, who was a good-looking girl friend with a great personality, very popular, into girls, and currently single. Aisyah had casually dated a few feminine-girl types, throughout upper secondary school. Chantal always admired Aisyah's never-morose, never-let-anyone-down vibe, and sometimes wished she could just let loose and have some fun too.

Organized religion felt like a yoke around her neck.

Chantal glanced up, to see what the catechist had written down on the whiteboard at the front of the classroom:

Proverbs 17:22 "Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time."

What would bring good cheer? She thought of being in a threesome with the Speedos guy and Aisyah, three of them indulging in unbridled lust.
