Goodreads summary:
A total meltdown. The whole school watching. Now Poppy’s an ex-straight-A with no Plan B.

When Poppy Johnson throws away a full scholarship to Columbia, she can only blame the jelly beans. The yucky green ones? Midnight cram sessions and Saturday’s spent studying. The delicious red? The family legacy: Columbia, and a future in finance. Except now it’s starting to look like Poppy’s jelly bean theory is wrong. School has been her life until, but maybe it’s time to start living now.

Poppy has thirty days to try a new life. No school, no studying. Just jumping into every possible world. Thirty days to find her passion, her path, and maybe even love. The Jelly Bean Crisis is officially on.


I would like to Thank AToMR Blog Tours for allowing me to be a part of this tour. I was dying to read The Jelly Bean Crisis and when the opportunity arose for me to be on the blog tour I jumped at it and I am so glad I did because I absolutely loved it! This story is so real life for a lot of teenagers that have parents who map out there entire life for them even right down to who they will marry.

The Jelly Bean Crisis is about a girl named Poppy who does everything she is asked to do by her parents. She has the won a prestigious scholarship to Columbia and starts to panic because she is not sure that this is what she wants to do.She wakes up one day and realizes that the life set before her is not the life she may want. She needs some time to be alone and think. So she decides she will take a month off of school to find herself. She is not sure why she is questioning everything but it just doesn't seem right. Just maybe her Jelly Bean theory was wrong.

See Poppy has lived her life on the theory that you eat the not so good jelly beans first and save the best for last. The red ones are the best so she treats everything like jelly beans. She is starting to realize that just maybe you have to take the good with the bad in order to have a better life. Sometimes the jelly beans are going to be gross but in the end they will be the best jelly beans for you.On her month long journey Poppy will go through things and work on problems but she will find herself and in the end she does what is right for her.

I'm a writer of books, an eater of wedges, and a lover of exclamation marks.

My first book, Total Blueprint for World Domination shows you how to design your dream world and make it happen!

I also love gravy, fizzy drinks and shiny things. My reviews will focus on what I love. Because every book has it’s own special something, right?
