Reviews for Checked
Review from Kris on TheBookBeacon.com:
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review... and honestly: this book is INCREDIBLE and everyone reading this should read Checked. From the blurb, I assumed it would be a sweet, perhaps predictable, story about a woman overcoming Obsessive Compulsive Disorder while falling for her new therapist. I love it when a book surprises me.
One of my favorite qualities about this book is how well written it is. The storytelling is stellar.
Review from Dianne on Tome Tender Book Blog:
All I want to say is WHOA! READ THIS BOOK! Checked by debut author Jennifer Jamelli is going to take you into the world of a woman who must deal with OCD every second of every day.
. . . If this is what we can expect from Jennifer Jamelli, readers are in for a slice of creative, intense reading, plots that flow with the moment and characters that will crawl into your hearts-in other words, some great reading!
Review from Kaylene on Magic Within the Pages
One, two, three - this book is incredible, fantastic, amazingly beautiful
and one of the best reads so far this year ...
Checked is the story of Calista (Callie) Royce’s life where everything is done in three’s due to her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Callie is a very likeable woman who was able to laugh at her own condition which helped to make her condition more light-hearted for me. I laughed but sometimes I also felt tears.
Jennifer Jamelli has spent most of her life reading and writing; she holds both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in English, and she is an 8th grade English teacher.
Jennifer is the author of the Checked trilogy and Drama Unsung.
She also directs musical productions and recently completed her twentieth show.
Jennifer lives with her husband and two children in Pennsylvania. She, like the main character in her Checked series, has a rather hopeless case of OCD.
