Now available in one special edition, three young adult novels from Ann Herrick: The Real Me, Snowed in Together, and Hey, Nobody's Perfect.
 
The Real Me

When Mattie has issues with her weight, she decides to take charge of her life, redo her image, find confidence and maybe even dare to talk to guys. Will a change in lifestyle, a friend, a tormentor, and a dream guy help Mattie discover her real self and find romance along the way?

"…a charming young adult novel about love and identity. Mattie, the first-person narrator, is a spunky heroine who takes charge of her life, makes mistakes, dusts herself off, and tries again. Kevin, her heartthrob, is both believable and appealing. The plot moves quickly with enough twists and turns to keep readers guessing about whether-and with whom-Mattie will find true love …." ~ Debra Stang, eBook Reviews Weekly 
 
Snowed In Together

What secrets are revealed when six teens get trapped at school on a Saturday? 

Wes and his best buds, Tony and Jeff, have enough brain power to fuel the entire sophomore class, but when it comes to their social lives, they are totally inept. So they volunteer to organize the art room on Saturday knowing three certain cheerleaders will be there for practice. Trouble is, none of the guys can come up with a plan to take advantage of the opportunity to be the only six students in the building.
 
Then, thanks to a freak snowstorm, they're snowed in, which isn't so bad when the girls of their horniest dreams are there, too. Maybe it could give Wes the chance to make his fantasies about Ellyce come true! However, the last thing Wes expects is to be caught in a game that forces everyone to share his deepest secret. He fears if Ellyce discovers the story of his alcoholic father and abandonment by his mother, she'll never want anything to do with him.


"Ann completely stayed true to the characters and their age. Teenage hormones were very active, but not overdone. And I loved how everything turned out in the end for Wes and his friends. Things didn't end perfectly - I mean, it's high school - but the things that really matter, like self-confidence, self-discovery, and self-growth, was accomplished in spades. Ann Herrick's "Snowed In Together" is definitely a five star story!


Hey, Nobody's Perfect

Life was complicated enough for Sivia before a guy with no legs came into her life. 
Her parent's divorce did not wipe out their traditional family values. Dad is still way too self-centered, Mom is still resentful, Russ is still shoving food in his mouth and Sivia doesn’t need any more drama. But when the new student, obnoxious and legless Keeley, becomes her project partner, her life becomes even more complicated.  Family friction, peer pressure and her overly controlling father are threats her budding relationship—but prejudices she never knew she had and doesn't want to acknowledge are the biggest hurdle of all. 

Hey, Nobody's Perfect is a story about serious issues told with both substance and humor.

"HEY, NOBODY'S PERFECT is an outstanding teenage romance. I was highly impressed with the characters of Sivia and Keeley. The supporting characters of Brad, Marcy and Todd added so much in-depth character to the overall development of this story. I feel this is a book that every teenager should read. There are so many life lessons in this one book that it is a very eye opening experience. Ann Herrick is a wonderful author who has allowed her readers to go into the lives of a set of high school teenagers. It is refreshing to see how they experience their own way of finding the love they deserve" ~ 5 Stars, Suzie Housley, Romance Junkies Reviews
