Jason's Women

American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults

Lonesome and painfully shy, 16-year-old Jason drools over the personal ads until he meets beautiful Thao Nguyen and her elderly sponsor.

"Jason's dilemma is presented with humor and sensitivity, and teens will enjoy his bumbling attempts to set up a smoldering sexual encounter."

"Sparkles with wit and life from beginning to end."

"A perfect balance between humor and sensitivity."
—Voice of Youth Advocates

"Real and touching."
—Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books

"An excellent, moving, humorous book."
—Seattle P-I
