Max deals with high school the way she deals with panic attacks… deep breaths and denial. But denying her brother’s friend is another thing altogether.

Her nickname is ‘The Kid.’ She’s small, she’s socially awkward, and she desperately wants to be left alone.

For most of her childhood, Max was punished for speaking, or for just being in the way. Life improved slightly when her abusive father was no longer in the picture, but she still felt the need to be invisible.

Her older brother, Nate, is extremely protective and refuses to leave her side. He shelters her so she won’t be hurt again.

They had a good system until he introduced her to his new best friend.

Drew wants to coax Max out into the world so she can move beyond the pain. The method each boy takes in helping Max cope with her anxiety causes more conflict than Max is prepared to handle… especially when the school heart-breaker offers her more than a brotherly shoulder to lean on.

It Never Happened is the first book in the Starsville trilogy but can also be read as a stand alone novel. Starsville is a fictional town located in southern Ontario, Canada.

Today is an exciting day for me – the release of It Never Happened, the first book in my Starsville trilogy of Young Adult Fiction books.

It’s been a true labour of love as I’ve taken it from an idea I had when I was pregnant with my first child, to the book that (hopefully!) you’re about to download and read from either your e-reader or laptop/tablet.

I’ve been really humbled by the feedback I’ve had about the book, and especially the characters. I had a certain goal when writing, and that was to truly make your feel for Max and her story – hopefully, and going by preview reader and peer feedback, I’ve achieved that.

And now it’s your turn – you can buy the book right now for just $5.99, by clicking the Add to Cart button below. Don’t worry if you don’t have a PayPal account – you can choose to pay by credit card on the main PayPal screen when completing your order.

Hello and welcome to my site!

Jaclyn Aurore, author

Hi there!

First, thank you for coming to my little part of the internet, I’m truly grateful and I look forward to getting to know you.

My name is Jaclyn Aurore, and as you may or may not know, I write Young Adult fiction. This site aims to be many things:

  • A bookstore, where you can download digital copies of my book(s), as well as keep up-to-date on my journey to be a fully published-in-print author.
  • A blog, where I’ll share my thoughts on the writing process as well as some tidbits about my characters that didn’t appear in the books.
  • A store, where you can (shortly) buy merchandise related to the locations and characters in the books.
  • A website-reader-only “super secret” area where you can download deleted scenes and extended character portraits.
  • Somewhere we can share other authors we really like.
  • And a little bit more on top!

I’m really glad you’re here, it means a lot – sincerely.

I hope you enjoy (and buy!) my books, and please do share this site with your friends if you like what you find – I want this to truly be our community where you can share your ideas as much as I share mine!

Here’s to the journey!
