Editorial Reviews


4 out of 4 stars..."The author did an incredible job of writing a detailed story that didn't conform to the clichés of so many other young adult romance books... Calmer Girls was an amazing book that I definitely recommend." -
More reviews from Canada and Australia:

Five Stars..."Solidly rooted in time and place"--J. Gill, May 24 2016
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"This book really grabbed me. If you have experienced or are experiencing adolescence or have any Newfoundland blood in you, you will feel at home with this book. The description of the plot provided by Amazon only hints at all of the twists and turns of the story. And then there are the more "mature" scenes...
Samantha and Veronica have an uneasy relationship, then Ben enters and sparks and consequences fly. The book provides vivid descriptions and is solidly rooted in time and place. The story moves along smartly and you are always curious about what will happen next."
Five Stars..."I love how the author is so descriptive"--Amazon Customer, June 12 2016
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"This book is a fabulous read, for any age group. I couldn't put it down and found myself reading it slower, towards the end to make it last longer. I love how the author is so descriptive, that she makes you feel as though you are there. I love how it's set in a place that I'm from, thus making it even more enjoyable. Excellent job Jennifer, can't wait for the sequel."
Five Stars..."A wonderful story set in Newfoundland"--Amazon Customer, May 15 2016
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"I enjoyed how Jennifer Kelland Perry's descriptive writing gave such a visual of the St. John's neighbourhood in which the sisters live. Many teens and young adults would easily relate to the thoughts, experiences and family struggles of these "Calmer Girls" and will have trouble putting this book down!"
Five Stars..."I really enjoyed it."--Amazon Customer, May 23, 2016
Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
"I really enjoyed this interesting, well written book.The girls (and their mom) were so real to me I didn't want it to end! Looking forward to the sequel."
Five Stars..."Life is Never As It Seems"-- Kath Unsworth, 8 May 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase--Amazon Australia
"From the first pages I related to Samantha, the shy teen in a new town. The soured relationship with her confident and brash big sister. The fact she has a crush on her sister's good-looking boyfriend. She is in a difficult place; it happens. Throw in a broken mother at the helm of this dysfunctional family. Samantha's wild decisions all seem to make sense, in a melancholy way. It's a story about young love and the choices we make under difficult life circumstances.

Perry has weaved a well-rounded, yet believable tale, with strong characters and a wanting to see this girl find her happiness. But life is never as it seems. What will Samantha and her sister Veronica do next to bring some normal back into their lives? Is their relationship destined to disintegrate further after everything that occurs? I have no doubt that her next book will be just as captivating...I will be eagerly waiting to see what she does next."
