The Story of Jess and Aver

How many people break up with their boyfriend, not talk for three months, then wake up one day and marry them, before they officially get back together again? Yes, that’s right Married! Within a short time frame, I experienced love, loss, reconciliation, and heartbreak. This is the story of my revelation, how I almost single-handedly destroyed the best thing that had ever befallen me, and the incidents and events that followed. My name is Aver, and this is my story.


Review: The Story Of Jess & Aver

There is no doubt that more people are coping with mental health challenges, experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety and stress and are more frequently being diagnosed with other more complicated mental health disorders. K.A. Neeson deftly accesses these difficult subjects and palpably carves out for the reader what everyday simple experiences are like for someone with General Anxiety Disorder, whether they are falling in love, going through the ever so common waiting-room-anxiety, or experiencing tragedy. As the subject of mental health becomes less stigmatized and we seek and must understand more about mental health, “The Story Of Jess & Aver: Giving Love A Chance” is an accessible-for-all must-read and is written with a compassionate, gentle and humanist approach. It has the capacity to build much-needed awareness and understanding and is a perfect resource for the classroom, discussion groups, or for personal reflection and development. This is one exciting new writer to keep an eye on in the future!
