Now Available–J. Veeck's Novel, SEMESTER ABROAD

Enjoy the unique and fascinating journey (based on a true story) of a college semester abroad, from a not-so-traditional college student. The events surrounding Semester Abroad have been taken from a well-preserved, 40-year old detailed diary. It is heart-warming, humorous (hysterical at times), suspenseful, romantic and so fun that young adult readers won't want to put the book down.

From world-renowned ski resorts in Switzerland, to the ritzy Champs-Elysees Boulevard in Paris, Checkpoint Charlie in East Berlin, the red-light district in Amsterdam, and many other European marvels, Joanne Jeffers and her college friends experienced a full gamut of a semester abroad. A thin tight rope was walked, barely balanced by a web of troubles and disasters. After a near-death accident Joanne became entangled in a physical and emotional tug of war that ultimately led to a final, climatic shocking turn–that will leave readers scratching their heads and wondering for days.

It is my hope that junior high/high school students will love the story line, immediately feel a connection to the characters, and will not only be inspired to attend college, but will also want to discover all the many wonder/life-altering experiences a semester abroad has to offer.
