The Intern gets 2 thumbs up from me. And thank you very much for writing it."-- Kimberly S., via email, September 2010"I'm glad the author's going the light-hearted route with this. We need more comedy in YA."-- Jennifer Hoffine, blog tour comment, September 2010Excerpt:There's even a freakin' roof garden at the top level. It gives an alluring, brilliant view of the city nightscape. Roxeth is a grand city, awesome by day but even more spectacular at night."This is so beautiful." I'd like to turn a little to face Jo.Zee, another "view" for my eyes, that wouldn't be too much of a bad thing. I'm lingering, breathing deeply, just because he smells so good. He isn't stinky in the turnoff kind of way--it's a sweet, natural, hint-of-a-sweat boy smell. I think I'd like this even more than if he were fresh out of the shower."I love rooftops," Jo.Zee says, taking in the city skyline. "It's nice dancing high above the crowd. Takes you to new heights."I ask if he's ever danced on top of a building before."Many times...but never with somebody else."Author Bio:Jess's literary work has appeared in a diverse range of publications, such as Word Riot, ITCH Magazine, and The Battered Suitcase.
