Editorial Reviews

Review

The Rules of Half is easily the most captivating and emotionally harrowing family drama of summer, and it’ll keep you guessing until the captivating conclusion."
Redbook, “10 Books You Have to Read This Summer”


"In her debut novel, Patrick writes with sensitivity about the trials of mental illness for both sufferers and caregivers….[A] novel that’s strengthened by its attention to how people forgive and connect.”
Kirkus Reviews


"For those who crave the deepest of feels, this is your perfect entertainment pairing. These two heartbreaking but hopeful tales combine dysfunctional families, human connections, and unthinkable tragedy in the best way possible. There isn't a chance these dazzling dramas (set in completely different eras) won't move you to the core.”
―Popsugar


“The perfect trifecta of a dysfunctional family, mental illness, and inescapable small town dynamics, The Rules of Half will steal your attention mercilessly from the first page to the last."
Redbook


“In her debut novel The Rules of Half, Patrick flawlessly delivers both a deeply thoughtful depiction of mental illness, and a heartwarming, and dare I say humorous, story about the scars people carry, the healing power of human connections, and the wondrous child that lives in us all. Rules will have you feverously turning pages, and in the end, wanting to know what Jenna Patrick has planned for us next.”
―Brady Stefani, award-winning author The Alienation of Courtney Hoffman


"Both hopeful and heartbreaking, The Rules of Half explores how one man's mental illness can impact an entire town, and how the bonds of family, however strained, can pull you through even the darkest of times."
―Kristin Contino, author of The Legacy of Us


“A story rich in complex characters, Jenna Patrick’s debut novel The Rules of Half is a darkly compelling and ultimately redemptive tale of loss and regret, and the often-painful truths we must confront in order to heal.”
―Barbara Taylor Sissel, author of Faultlines
