- I bought Teaching Collette a while back and planned to read it on holiday...but I was tempted by the first few pages.....I never laid the book down from that point until I had finished the novel, I even took it to the loo!
It is a great read, very believable and cleverly written to draw you on and on, and at a really steady pace. There are no dull moments, I was captivated throughout, and he has a great talent for writing a tale, from love, drama, sex to sad twists and some tears.
I can relate to the author/Nick Jericho in many ways, but I'd love to have the author’s talent. I have often looked into the mirror and thought....”my eyes were like maraschino cherries in a glass of buttermilk."
Forego a beer with Nick Jericho and Harvey at the bar, save the bucks for a blindingly good read..Teaching Collette is a must buy book. (Andy Hageman, June 11, 2008)

- This was an absolutely wonderful read. The characters were like old friends and I had to know what would happen next. This is a book I will re-read many times. I felt so connected to the characters and their story, I wanted them to have the 'and they all lived happily ever after'. J. Leslie Adams goes right for the heart in this book and leaves you feeling like you learned an important life lesson. Take nothing for granted. (Mary Flemming, Sept. 25, 2007)
