“It was a great pleasure to welcome Jessica Brody to our school. Jessica presented a beautifully prepared Power Point about her journey to become a writer. She presents with humor and professionalism. The students loved her. At the end of each session, Jessica took questions, and the kids were so interested. They asked wonderful questions and Jessica responded with patience, encouragement, and enthusiasm. I would have her back to my school in a heartbeat. It was a great day!”
-Gladys Kruschwitz (teacher/instructional support coach, Ponderosa High School)

“Jessica came to our school for an after school session with our teenage girls and was just delightful! She entertained them with personal stories that allowed them to think of themselves as readers and potential writers. Jessica immediately engaged them and each one came to me individually the next day to thank me for having her come because it was such a special experience for them. I also had other students coming to me and asking to read The Karma Club.”
- Sherri Ginsberg (Librarian for Hillsides Home for Children)

“Jessica Brody seemed real nice; she seemed energetic and fun during her visit…It was cool to see a best selling author, and I hope I can see another one soon.  If I got to see another, I would be as happy as a geek at Comic.com.”
- Daniel (Middle School Student)

“Jessica…You came across as being genuine and honest with the kids, and they like that! The Karma Club is one of the most circulated book in our library. I have had many authors visit my school and you are one of the very best! We would love to see you next year when you are promoting your next book! The Ironwood Eagles love Jessica Brody’s books! Keep writing them for us!”
