I thoroughly enjoyed this refreshing and compelling story all the way to the very end… This is a story of possibilities, and that includes mystery, deceit, friendship, truth, distraction, strength, denial, courage and heartache.

Even if you aren’t big on the sci-fi aspect, this book tells the story of an incredible romance with its ups and downs and has complex characters that will stick with you well past the end (talk about a book hangover!). 5/5, for sure.

This book is twisted and bizarre, and insane, and so awesome and unexplainably sweet. #Iliterallycant.

In The Beginning There Was Us was gripping from the very first page with an exciting mix of mystery, romance, and something entirely its own.
- Kate Ormand
I’ve never had such a powerful impact from a book before – I can’t stop thinking about the story and the characters – just wondering about it all… This book is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. There are so many complex and mind-bending elements to it – not to mention the mystery, action, and the romance.
- A Dream within a Dream
The mystery surrounding the two is so clever and interesting, and the whole sci-fi element is outstanding. The author holds on to the secrets throughout the novel and I was blown away the minute that they started to unravel.

When the World Was Flat (and we were in love) by Ingrid Jonach is a compelling and outstanding masterpiece weaving in mystery, mind-bending twists, alternate dimensions and an epic love altogether seamlessly. Perfect for fans of parallel universe and time travel romance novels like me, which makes this book perfect for me. You wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about it long after you have finished reading it.
- Oops! I Read a Book Again
When the World Was Flat (and we were in love) stands out from the rest with its realistic teenage characters, believable romance, wit and invention.
- K. J. Taylor, author of The Fallen Moon and The Risen Sun Trilogies.
Jonach drew me in and ensnared me in her story—a fantastic blend of love, mystery and science. When the World was Flat (and we were in love) is a journey into the possibility of every moment and the myriads of self that may exist simultaneously and the resilience and perseverance of love.
– Donna Maree Hanson, author of Rayessa and the Space Pirates.
When The World Was Flat (And We Were In Love) is a thoroughly original, dimension-hopping love story. The fusion of the dreamlike plot and the completely believable characters makes for an addictive read. Lillie, her friends and her mother stay in the mind for long after the final page has been turned.
- Jack Heath, award-winning author of the Lab and Money Run.
The plot of this book is very unusual but it all centers around one thing: love. The relationship between Tom and Lillie is truly heart-wrenching. I caught myself tearing up on more than one occasion. A truly tragic and beautiful story about young lovers.

This is a book that is so beautifully written it reads almost like a movie narrator guiding you through the vivid imagery that the author has created. This book was fascinating from the first page, to the very last. It was, by far, THE best book I have ever read.
- Ladybug Literature
I would definitely recommend this for anyone who enjoys hard science fiction, or for someone who is looking for a science fiction romance novel with seriously flawed characters who you can’t help but fall in love with. I honestly don’t know what to compare this too, because it is so original and hauntingly beautiful and so many other things.
- The A.P. Book Club
It was beautiful to read it unfold. It was like watching Romeo and Juliet guest staring in The Time Traveler’s Wife, and the ending had me undone… This is a beautiful, well thought out, wonderful story & I recommend it to anyone who loves YA, with a side of science fiction.

If you liked The Frank Frankie; the newspaper that helps people, you’ll love this sequel.

Ingrid Jonach touches on the serious topics of decision making and relationships whilst still maintaining an upbeat storyline… This novel is perfect for reading out loud and will have you smiling and laughing the whole way through.

I enjoyed reading this book. I found it very funny the way Frankie talks and tells her story.

An engaging story about a delightfully energetic little girl with a passion for words.
- Wendy Noble, Good Reading
Every aspect of this book is fun, from the chapter titles to the line drawings that capture so perfectly the non-stop activity and the characters.
- ED, Reading Time
I love a kids’ chapter book that aims so directly at its audience, you can hear the bulls-eye thud of its literary arrow.
-Tania McCartney, Australian Women Online
This book is very amusing and full of funny phrases and jokes… I think this is a very well written book. It is funny with a good storyline. I will recommend it to all of my friends so that they can enjoy it too.

A perfect interpretation of a grade four girl’s life – two thumbs up!
- Caitlin, 10, The Examiner
Not only does this lovely book work beautifully on a verbal level, its busy-bee pictures will entrance little eyes, boggling at the collection of junk strewn from here to over there.
