Jamie takes us inside the mind of today’s teens and demonstrates the importance of spending more time with our children, building relationships and memories that will last a lifetime. Every parent and teen should read this book… together! -Shep Hyken, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author
This book is funny, instructive, adventurous and more importantly written by a daughter that tells it like it is and a Dad that tried to give his daughter the trip of a lifetime. He succeeded when Jamie declares “Dad and I make a great team". That is a great compliment. Wonderful read, I highly recommend it! -Dr. Joachim de Posada Author of the book Don’t Eat the Marshmallow...Yet
Adventure travel usually means journeying to primitive and inhospitable places. But what could be more adventurous than being a 50-year- old father traveling with your 16-year old teenage daughter?

Jamie’s Journey is a book everyone can relate to and learn from. -Bruce Turkel, branding expert, FOX Business contributor, and Author of Building Brand Value.
