front of store

You guys. Barnes & Noble is displaying Keep Holding On for front of store promotion nationwide. When I first heard about this, I was excited for my book to get to play with the grownup books. This is the first time one of my books has been outside of the teen section. I heard that Keep Holding On would be on the adult new fiction table right when you walk into the store. What I wasn’t expecting was to see my book chilling with books by my idols Jodi Picoult and Anne Tyler:

Jodi Picoult and Anne Tyler have been two of my most favorite authors for many years. I’m honored to be sharing table space with them. Hemingway was also spotted, btw.

I’m also honored to be receiving even more sweet reviews of Keep Holding On. I’m so thankful to those of you who’ve read the book and spread the word. Your support means everything. Here’s a rundown of new reviews:

The emails I’ve been getting from readers who’ve connected with the book have been incredible. It breaks my heart that so many of you are going through such difficult times. I wish I could give you all a big hug and tell you it’s going to be okay. I know it’s really hard to keep holding on. But I survived those hard times. And so will you.

Never give up.

  1. I’m so happy for you, Susane! 🙂

    I just finished Keep Holding On. I started it late last night, thinking I’d just read a couple chapters, but I was soon pulled in by the story and did not want to put it down. I finally went to bed close to 5am and finished the rest of the book today. It was an intense and emotional read. I wish I could give Noelle and everyone else who’s being bullied or has ever been bullied a big hug. Thanks for writing such an inspiring book and reminding readers that life is worth living and that things will get better. It really pains me to think that you went through similar experiences to what Noelle did as a teenager, but your positive outlook on life is so wonderful to see and a testament to not giving up. Thanks for all you do! 🙂

  2. Whatttt. That’s not the first time your book has been out of the teen section! I saw So Much Closer displayed on the table thing last year! I live in Ontario Canada by the way and I saw it at Chapters, which is like the biggest bookstore we have here in Canada.

  3. I really want to read all your books. They are fantastic! But I don’t know if they are an appropriate book for me since I am only twelve… I just read something like fate and the part where he’s gay really struck me.

    • Thanks so much! You can totally read Waiting for You. The others are all 12 and up. When It Happens is my most mature book. It’s classified as 12 and up, but I think 14 and up is more accurate.
