Author Biography

Award-winning young adult author Christina Benjamin grew up in the little town of La Plume, PA where at an early age she fell in love with writing. She began to write short stories in grade school and continued practicing her trade all the way through college where she attended the University of Central Florida to complete her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Technical Writing.

Benjamin’s writing hooks fans of mega-hit YA fiction like Harry Potter and Hunger Games, and offers them a new series to obsess over. She paints a vivid world, where magic and imagination run wild in her epic tale of adventure, courage and friendship.

Christina now lives in North Florida with her husband, and character inspiring pets. She spends most of her time writing. Benjamin is dedicated to giving back to the community and speaking at schools to inspire creativity in young writers. When she has free time she enjoys to read, listen to music, shop and travel.

Truth: The Geneva Project Book 1 by Christina Benjamin is a new and inventive kind of story. Long ago, an island was torn apart by a flood and only one city survived. A village right outside the city also survived, along with a few people around the island, but mostly orphaned children whose parents were killed in the flood. Jane 65 is one of these children. Not given names so that they would not have to deal with being called something different if they were adopted, all children are assigned a number. Jane 65 is not a normal orphan. She is the youngest and, as she discovers with the help of Nova, another orphan who knows his name, she has magical powers. There are people who want to hurt Jane 65 and it is up to her and her friends to stop it before it happens. Oh, and they have to save the island while they are at it.

I loved Truth: The Geneva Project Book 1 by Christina Benjamin. It was a wonderful book. I especially love Tippy AKA Jane 65. I really connected with her and it is easy to see why. She has such a strong love for her friends. Plus she has this insecure humble side I believe that many people had. I loved feeling the excitement Tippy felt as she discovered each of her new powers. It was as exciting as it was fun to read. I didn’t want to take my eyes off the pages. Who can forget the subtle budding love between Nova and Tippy. Nothing could possible ruin it, not even Jemma who has always hated Tippy. With no reason for it at all either. Together with her friends, you feel as though Tippy can accomplish anything she wants to. I loved Tippy and you will too.
