A dusty, second-hand book that makes one girl's wish come true—even as it destroys her life.
Simone wants to be a normal teen with a normal family: Mom, Dad, and daughter. Instead, she has a mother who was dealt the cancer card and a father that took off to marry a younger woman. That meant every hour of Simone's life is about caring for her mother during her darkest hours. When Simone finds a cure, her world changes on a dime. Mom is pulled from the brink of death, and Simone is left holding the precious tome that gave the gift of life.
Tristan is boy-next-door handsome, and now, Simone has a chance to date, but her obsession with the book is a dangerous one. Everything is threatening to unravel unless she stops reading—something she has no intention of doing.
Shocking, heart wrenching, and insightful, Utterances will make you question everything you thought you knew about self-sacrifice.
Buy Utterances today, and join Simone as she struggles to understand the difference between good and evil.

About the Author
Jo Michaels is... Hi, I'm Jo. Let's forget all the "Jo Michaels is blah, blah, blah" stuff and just go with it. I'm a voracious reader (often reading more than one book at a time), a writer, a book reviewer, a mom, a wife, and one of the EICs at INDIE Books Gone Wild. I have an almost photographic memory and tend to make people cringe at the number of details I can recall about them and/or their book(s). My imagination follows me around like a conjoined twin and causes me to space out pretty often or laugh out loud randomly in completely inappropriate situations. I have a degree in graphic design, and my journey to the end was one few students who begin that program ever complete. However, this was one case where my memory and OCD tendencies helped me. Graduation was one of the most amazing days of my life. But, my most amazing day was when my now husband proposed. Every little girl dreams of being Cinderella someday, and he pulled off the proposal of fantasies. At the risk of sounding cliche, I'm going to let it out there and say how much I absolutely adore the man I'm married to. Along with my children, he's my whole world. I've lived in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia, but I've had my feet in almost every state. Traveling is something I adore, and have plans to someday see the Mongolia I've written about in Yassa. One of my favorite things is hearing from fans! You can find me on social media most any day of the week. Connect! I'd love to hear from you.
