Happy Release Day to LEAP OF FAITH by Jamie Blair

On Tuesday, Jamie Blair's debut contemporary YA novel, LEAP OF FAITH, was released by Simon and Schuster! We will be participating in her blog tour later on this month, but wanted to share how excited we are for this poignant, insightful book to be out in the world. Congratulations, Jamie!

The Book

Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read. Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.

Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?


“Just a marvelous debut. Moving and suspenseful.” Kirkus - starred review

“Blair, who writes adult romance as Kelli Maine, crafts persuasive characters who have succumbed to bitterness…as well as those who struggle to overcome hardship and tragedy and live with hope.” Publishers Weekly

"Well done, Jamie Blair. You've written a unique, compelling, page turner that managed to break my heart and create a beautiful love story in the process." Julie Cross, International Bestselling Author of the Tempest series
