Writer of the crazy, reader of anything, artist when I feel like it, lover of chocolate, sister to three, friend to all and follower of Jesus. My name is J.C. Buchanan, and I’m a 16-year-old homeschool student from Illinois. I’ve been writing as long as I can remember and reading for even longer. When I’m not writing, thinking about writing, planning for writing, or reading, I’m likely hanging out with my amazing friends, eating chocolate, making movies, babysitting awesome children, or hanging out or volunteering at church. I believe in the power of fiction to change the world and my sole desire is to show people God’s amazing love through my writing. 

The purpose of this blog is to offer reviews from a Christian teen girl perspective. I do not like popular fiction, such as the Hunger Games or Divergent, so you will not see much of that here. 

You may or may not also know me through the publication of my books, The Hidden Amethyst (2013) and You'll Be Like Faye (2015). You can learn more at my author site: jcbuchanan.com
