The New York Times Book ReviewSelf-conscious about your body? Unsure where—or if—you'll ever fit in? Wondering when people will start treating you like an adult? Katherine Marsh's Jepp, Who Defied the Stars delves into these perennial adolescent challenges while transporting her readers to a tiny island in Denmark in the late 16th century…Jepp does, as the title of Marsh's novel announces, defy what another less gifted and determined young man might accept as fate, just as Marsh transcends genre to create an engaging narrative complex enough to keep not-so-young adults turning its pages.
