Editorial Reviews


"LeBlanc's coming-of-age tale about a nervous new college freshman is an odd, but charming blend of modern college life with an old-fashioned feel. Augie's personality is awkward,altruistic, and funny, and it's a pleasure to watch him grow as he and the other entertaining characters live through a sweet, relatively wholesome season." -Publishers Weekly

"Jennifer LeBlanc's coming of age story for new adults, The Tribulations of August Barton, is a hilarious and life-affirming tale that kept me enthralled and thrilled throughout my entire reading experience. I love LeBlanc's Augie whose geekiness, romanticism and kind heart make him so very special. Seeing his outrageous grannie and her best friend, Tunes,drag him kicking and screaming into life is sheer joy. LeBlanc's story is beautifully written, and her characters are finely drawn and unforgettable. And, like Isaac, I suspect anyone who has the good fortune to come across this book will see senior citizens in an entirely different way afterwards. The Tribulations of August Barton is most highly recommended."-Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

"I enjoyed the author's writing style. I loved the first few lines of the book. The story flowed well, and the characters were engaging."-Literary Titan

"Right off the bat I enjoyed LeBlanc's energetic narrative voice and that she captures the vibe and angst of the late teen/new adult crowd perfectly."-Anabella Johnson (Indie Book Reviewers)

"I felt like I was genuinely inside Augie's head experiencing the world through his eyes, for better or worse."-Marcella Gonzales (Indie Book Reviewers)

"An exciting and relatable debut with a laugh out loud effect"
-IAC (Indie Author Central) Submissionary

"It's a decent "feel good" story, kind of like a Lifetime movie or something you'd see on the Hallmark channel. (And let me tell you, I'm a total sucker for those movies.) I enjoyed it and I think you would too."
-Causeway Lit Blog

"FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS! It was so much fun to read and at other times it was so touching it made me want to cry. This book was just really good. It was full of humor, romance, and drama. The characters were awesome. All around it was a great story and I really enjoyed it."
-Boundless Book Reviews Book Blog
