“Bauman returns to the Jersey shore for her second YA novel, an acutely intimate portrait of a girl’s efforts to better understand herself and her relationships….One can almost smell salt and sunscreen in the air in this soulful and insightful coming-of-age story.”— Publishers Weekly, starred review
“…this quick read will please readers looking for both nuance and heat in their beach books.”— Kirkus Reviews
“There is a beauty and a bravery to Beth Ann Bauman’s novel that will grip the heart of every reader. Tough, sensitively wrought, and glorious, Jersey Angel is divine.”—Lily Burana, author of Strip City and I Love a Man in Uniform
“This frank and funny tale for older teens is an unconventional, no-holds-barred account of Angel, the knockout who walks out of standardized tests and has no patience for the usual moral codes of high school. Beth Ann Bauman pushes the boundaries of YA and gives us a character who makes mistakes—and yet we cheer her on.”–Judy Blundell, National Book Award winner of What I Saw and How I Lied
“Beth Ann Bauman’s Jersey Angel beautifully captures the joys, agonies and intensity of being seventeen. Sex and the beach are a thrilling background for this wonderful story that deals with love, loyalty, friendship and family.”—Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
“Bauman delivers a strong female character who enjoys her sexuality and isn’t about to apologize for it. Angel Cassonetti’s choices complicate her world, and could compromise her most important relationships. Raw, honest, and unflinching.”–Tanya Lee Stone, author of A Bad Boy Can Be Good For A Girl and Sibert Medalist Almost Astronauts: 13 Women Who Dared to Dream
