Fifteen-year-old JL Markham's life used to be filled with carnival nights and hot summer days spent giggling with her forever best friend, Aubrey, about their families and boys. Together, they were unstoppable. But they aren't the friends they once were.

With JL's father gone on long-term business, and her mother struggling with her mental illness, JL takes solace in the tropical butterflies she raises, and in her new, older boyfriend, Max Gordon. Max may be rough on the outside, but he has the soul of a poet (something Aubrey will never understand). Only, Max is about to graduate, and he's going to hit the road—with or without JL.

JL can't bear being left behind again. But what if devoting herself to Max not only means betraying her parents, but permanently losing the love of her best friend? What becomes of loyalty, when no one is loyal to you?
Gae Polisner's Jack Kerouac is Dead to Me is a story about the fragility of female friendship, of falling in love and wondering if you are ready for more, and of the glimmers of hope we find by taking stock in ourselves.

About the Author

Gae Polisner is the award-winning author of several novels for young and young-at-heart readers. She lives on Long Island with her wonderful husband and a suspiciously fictional-looking small dog she swore she’d never own. She has two sons she loves with her entire soul, and is endlessly grateful for her family and friends who make her laugh, and lift her during hard times. When Gae isn’t writing, she’s making art or swimming in the open waters off the Long Island Sound. She’s still waiting for her wetsuit to turn her into a superhero.
