For seventeen-year-old Bria Hale, image is everything. She's a militant vegan with purple hair, Doc Martens and a permanent scowl. Kissing captain of the football team Ben Harris? Definitely not part of that image.

Now with each secret kiss, she's falling deeper for the boy every girl at Oceanside High is crushing on. Throw in a few forbidden bacon cheeseburgers and she's facing one major identity crisis.

Ignoring Ben should be easy, but when a flashy display of artistic spirit lands her in close quarters after hours with the boy she's too cool to like, she can't keep pretending those kisses meant nothing. With her reputation and her heart on a collision course, Bria must either be true to herself or to the persona she's spent all of high school creating.

Praise for THE ART OF FALLING

THE ART OF FALLING gives an honest look at self discovery during those delicate teen years, and how easy it can be to succumb to the stereotypes, yet how brave it is to rise above them.

Jenny Kaczorowski's writing is easy to follow and before I knew it I was halfway through the book. If all of Bloomsbury Spark's books are like The Art of Falling they have a winning formula.
- Luna at Luna's Little Library
Jenny Kaczorowski's debut is fun, engaging and sweet and I'll definitely devour her future novels when I'm in need of an afternoon of escapism!
- Sophie at So Many Books, So Little Time
The romance between Bria and Ben was heartwarming, and the journey as Bria struggles to break out of the role she's created is very satisfying.

About the author (2013)

Raised in Avon, Ohio, the duct tape capital of the world, Jenny began her writing career as a featured columnist for her hometown newspaper. After earning a degree in photojournalism from Kent State University, she vowed to never spend another winter in Ohio and moved to Los Angeles, where there is far too much sunshine.

Amid working as a grant writer for Sound Art, a non-profit that teaches music in inner-city neighborhoods, and raising two kids, Jenny decided to do something with all the snippets of stories she wrote during microeconomics and began writing for young adults. She likes her heroines smart and quirky, her heroes nice, and her kisses sweet. Her debut, THE ART OF FALLING, is published with Bloomsbury Spark.

Apart from writing, Jenny is still an avid photographer, loves music despite no discernible musical talent, and reads the dictionary for fun. She lives near Los Angeles with her husband, son and daughter. The four of them are always looking for their next adventure.
