Review: On the Line by Jackie Nastri Bardenwerper

"This is one of those books once you start reading you don’t want to put down. Every character is so well-developed that you feel as they are real and you actually know them. They are authentic teenagers and not adults pretending to be teens."

Nothing better than seeing On The Line right next to The Old Man and the Sea and Ernest Hemingway!

Review: On The Line

"This was a really great read! I tore through it, reading it in a few hours over a couple of plane rides. I couldn't put it down. . . . It's not very often that I am so pleasantly surprised by how good a book is, but this one did it for me. If you are looking for unique and engrossing read, I would definitely check it out!"

Beach Books: On the Line is a great catch

"When we are looking for great beach books for Spring Break or summer, or that beach getaway in our mind, we want compelling characters, a page-turning story, juicy details, steamy emotion, and enough romance to keep it real. On The Line, by Jackie Nastri Bardenwerper, fills our checklist perfectly… but really is so much more than just a juicy beach read. . . ."
