"This book is frank, it's raw, compelling, and ultimately uplifting... Jennifer's Way is a page-turner of medical self-discovery that will give many people a new appreciation of Celiac disease."—Allergic Living
"This book was so captivating and kept me interested throughout. As I told her, I was on pins and needles during the chapter titled In the Psych Ward. I couldn't believe that doctors and medical professionals could be so rude to put her through what she went through during that time (and many others throughout her journey). In Jennifer's Way, you get a glimpse of what it is like for so many living with Celiac disease... I was very impressed with Jennifer's willingness to open up and share her story with millions. I would recommend that those with Celiac disease as well as loved ones to those living with Celiac disease read this book. Eyes will be opened and understand built as you tearfully read one woman's Celiac journey."—GlutenFreeFrenzy.com
