"Leaving Major Tela by J.E. O'Rourke is an interesting and engaging novel about the struggles of growing up that every teenager can identify with. The cast of characters is relatable and realistic, and Caitlin's journey as she heads towards maturity and growth is nicely portrayed. I also really liked the element of martial arts training that is interspersed throughout the book and I hope that it encourages more young people to take up martial arts. Overall, this is an enjoyable read not just for teenagers, but for everybody." 5-star review by Gisela Dixon at readersfavorite.com
I can remember being a teenager when every little thing around me seemed to be life or death. That seems to be how things are for Caitlin as she navigates all of it. This is a good story and well fleshed out...(T)he characters and everything going on around the characters fits. I could certainly feel for Caitlin. I am from a divorced home myself and it was interesting to go through life being shuttled back and forth. If you are someone who enjoys YA drama, this is going to be a good book for you. 4-star review by Kathryn Bennett at readersfavorite.com
