Good Black Tuesday Author Susan Colebank go inside Books I ve loved books ever since I was about three years old and my dad would gather me and my older brothers around him and read The Little House on the Prairie series When I began reading on my own, I went to the public library and checked out 20 books at a time that had to last me for a week But I d have finished them by the next day I soon realized that maybe 1st grade readers maybe weren t the best fit I started checking out adult books Sidney Sheldon, Judith Krantz, Danielle Steele I wasn t a book snob In fact, I still love a good trashy beach read.I was a pretty good writer during school, but I never wanted to be a writer For a good ten years of my life, I wanted to be a fashion designer I would doodle my designs during class while getting A after A on writing assignments I guess I was in denial about where fate wanted to take me It took a bad job rearranging socks in a department store to realize I was on the wrong path in life After a little soul searching that included being the Book Goddess at an independent bookstore and working at a New York fashion magazine, I realized that writing fiction was where my heart was.Black Tuesday came out in Summer 2007 I m currently working on edits for my second book about a girl who wins the lottery That s slated to come out in 2009.. Everything is going just the way superachiever Jayne Thompkins planned She s at the top of her class and captain of the girls varsity tennis team Her ultimate goal Harvard She wouldn t be killing herself with all these extracurriculars otherwise But her life changes when she crashes into another car and a little girl dies as a result Will she ever be able to live wiEverything is going just the way superachiever Jayne Thompkins planned She s at the top of her class and captain of the girls varsity tennis team Her ultimate goal Harvard She wouldn t be killing herself with all these extracurriculars otherwise But her life changes when she crashes into another car and a little girl dies as a result Will she ever be able to live with the guilt she feels over this accidental death A gripping and fastpaced story about guilt, anger, forgiveness, and second chances by firsttime author Susan Colebank.. The best Book Black Tuesday Jayne Lee Thompkins is a stellar high school student. She studies 40 hours a week for A’s and she is on her way to becoming valedictorian. She is much more responsible than her sister, Ellie, who always needs her help and she has a workaholic mother who expects nothing but the best; an A- isn’t good enough. Jayne isn’t like other teenage girls who spend hours on the phone. Studying takes priority over conversations with friends. But then comes a day when a phone call matters more to her than the safety of others – she runs a red light and her life changes.After the accident, Jayne’s dad told her that she was a bright, pretty girl who got some bad luck thrown her way. No, she was a bright, pretty girl who caused the bad situation she was dealing with when she chose to care more about who was on the other end of her cell phone than she cared about keeping her eyes on the road while driving. After the accident, her dad did seem to be the only one in her family who wasn’t in denial about Jayne’s situation, but still even-tempered Sean Thompkins didn’t know how to deal with what his daughter was going through. Other people around Jayne seemed to go on as if nothing had happened – maybe because they didn’t want to make her feel any worse – but denial wasn’t helping her. And all Jayne’s mother, local celeb Gen Thompkins, seemed to care about was making sure her daughter kept her sights on getting into Harvard. Even when Jayne was feeling bad after sentencing, Mrs. Thompkins brought up college when Jayne needed her mother to comfort her.Jayne made changes – bad choices, in my opinion - and she was supposed to be a new and improved Jayne, but I didn’t see anything she did as an improvement. I felt bad for her, actually. Were the changes she made a way of rebelling against her mother? Possibly. It’s good to be studious and involved in school activities but Jayne had way too much going on, leaving her with very little time for enjoyment and her mother had something to do with that. But it seemed to me there was self-loathing going on because of the accident. She was obviously hurting and feeling guilty about what she had done. And why wouldn’t she be? Six year old Brenda Deavers died because Jayne ran a red light. Although, I believe Jayne was responsible, the child’s mother, Donna Deavers, was also to blame because she had her child in the front seat. Jayne should not have been harassed the way she was.I never like seeing the Name of Jesus taken in vain and it was in this story. And it is another story where a girl doesn’t think the guy she’s known for a while could be more than a friend, but he turns out to be ‘the one’. But I will say it was an interesting read. For anyone who doesn’t take talking on the phone while driving seriously, this book will open your eyes to the dangers of allowing yourself to be distracted behind the wheel.
