Are you ready to learn What They Don’t Know? Find out October 2nd…

Here’s what people are saying about the book:

“It’s heart-wrenching. I cried and screamed and stayed up past my bedtime to finish reading her story.” – Bookriot, “Best Books We Read in July”


“What this book does is so hugely important…it gives abortion some humanity. So get this book. No arguments, no excuses, no “maybe someday.” We no longer have time for “someday.” All we have is now and this book is so important and what we do tomorrow, next week, next month is so important.” – What A Nerd Girls Says


“One of the most gut-wrenching and beautifully written books I’ve read in a long time.” – Paula on Goodreads


“What They Don’t Know is heartbreaking, raw and real. This book is just spectacular and poignant.” – DJ on Goodreads


“…it’s woke feminist YA 101 for young teens who are still thinking and learning about abortion.” – Morgan Schulman on Goodreads
