WILMINGTON- Readsboro author Jayne McBurney will be discussing and reading from her debut young adult novel at Bartleby’s Books on Saturday, March 18, at 4 pm. McBurney is an 18-year-old author, with her first published novel being “Think Twice.” Before moving to Vermont, Jayne lived in Little Compton, RI. She lives in Readsboro with two turtles, a bearded dragon, two bunnies, a cat, and her pit bull Stella. McBurney started writing when she was younger, and has recently been focused on publishing her work. “Think Twice” is her first successfully published novel. McBurney plans on writing and publishing more in the future, with her main focus being on young adult fiction.

The book’s plot: Life hasn’t been easy for 16-year-old Alice Winburrow. For the past eight years, Alice has been moving from one foster home to another. A difficult past has left her with severe trust issues and PTSD. Believing there was no hope, Alice had given up on her happiness. Until she met Jessica Green. Jessica seemed like the best foster parent yet. Like everyone else, Jessica had secrets of her own. Jessica makes a mistake that turns Alice’s world upside down. Angry at herself for trusting Jessica, and afraid for the future Alice takes life into her own hands. Suddenly, things go horribly wrong. Alice must overcome her fears and fight for her life if she wants to survive. This would be her biggest battle yet.

Bartleby’s Books is located at 17 West Main Street. For more information on this event call (802) 464-5425, email bartbook@sover.net or visit www.myvermontbookstore.com.
