Book for young adults penned by Connecticut resident
Jackie Nastri Bardenwerper, a former Orange resident and Amity High School graduate, recently released her first young adult novel, "On the Line."
"Set in the Florida Keys, the book follows 16-year-old Piper Wesley as she enters a fishing tournament with the hopes of saving her family's business. As Piper fights for the $25,000 grand prize, she must untangle her feelings for Benny, her best friend and fishing partner, and Logan, a newcomer from Michigan who doesn't know how to fish, but keeps hanging around," according to a release.
"The story draws heavily from Bardenwerper's childhood experiences on the water in Milford ... where she was an avid fisherman and participated in the Junior Sailing program at the Milford Yacht Club."
Bardenwerper has been writing since she was a child and won her first national writing competition at 13, the release said. She graduated from Cornell University Cum Laude with distinction in research in 2005 and now lives in Stamford with her husband, Tad, the release said.
