I won't be buying this book and you probably won't publish this post, but it needs to be said that JoJo's blatant lifting of scenes and situations is plagiarism at the highest level. After reading The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek and then reading the BuzzFeed article showing the lifted passages, I am appalled! JoJo didn't even change the names of the characters!
Readers take note: This is what happens in the publishing industry when a famous author gets wind of a totally unique story from an emerging author and changes just enough to put it out under their name. Then the publicity engine starts working and the author who spent years of research developing the story gets pushed aside for the big name with star power and a big promotion budget. JojJo, you could AT LEAST have changed the names of the characters! Lazy!
