Winner of the Backwards Contest

Jennifer Knight, author of Abstinence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder, has chosen a WINNER for the Backwards Contest! The winner is Fire & Ice by Amy Rose Thomas!

Of “Fire & Ice,” Jennifer said: “…An excellently written and flawlessly portrayed romance-in-reverse. It’s a well-used story idea, the love that grows old, but the way you tell it brings fresh life and oodles of reader-interest…Like any good short story, I want to read more and learn more about the characters. I love your creative language as well; it really adds color to the story.”

She also chose Fatal Attraction by Angela C as the runner up: “This story literally made my heart ache!…The authenticity of Taylor’s voice is so genuine, and so completely real I feel as though an actual teenage girl has died. It’s really left me upset! (but in a good way). I adore the fact that this is told from Andrew’s point of view, and that we get to see his tragic story as well as Taylor’s.”

Congratulations Amy and Angela!
