Sometimes, falling apart is the only way to put yourself together.
“The story of one woman’s journey to change her life and realize her dreams, or face another crushing failure, ‘Participant’ is a fully engaging novel that showcases author Carmen Kemp’s genuine flair for originality, memorable characters, and inherently entertaining narrative storytelling skills.” ~ Midwest Book Review
“I loved the story line of Participant but I loved the characters even more. The young women in this book are so relatable. They each have their characteristics that make you love them, but then their little quirks that just make you want to smack them. A lot like the people you know in real life! I enjoyed following them on their journey. If you’ve ever questioned yourself, felt stuck in a dead end job or wondered what the heck you were doing with your life, you will relate to and enjoy this book.” ~ Tami
