Thousand Words
by Jennifer Brown
Expected Publication: 21st May 2013
From Goodreads:

Ashleigh's boyfriend, Kaleb, is about to leave for college, and Ashleigh is worried that he'll forget about her while he's away. So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send." 

But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look. 

Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.

This book sounds really interesting and I don't think I've been reading enough contemporary books lately! I haven't read any other Jennifer Brown books but they look and sound to be pretty good so I'd like to give her a go.


  1. This sounds really good. I'm wondering why... she got in trouble for sending a dirty picture to her boyfriend!? Not cool, Kaleb. I haven't read this yet and he's already going into the douchebag file! lol
