About the Author:

Jessica Null Vealitzek is a former reporter and political communications director. She was born and raised northwest of Chicago, where she now lives with her husband and two children. This is her first novel.

Review:

“Michael, a boy rejected by his schoolmates, and Julia, a schoolteacher confused about her sexual identity, form a lovely, sympathetic bond in Jessica Null Vealitzek’s fine first novel. The Rooms Are Filled is the story of their struggle to survive in a suburban world full of prejudice and hostility, set against the backdrop of a natural world, which we, like Michael, have lost but still can learn from. Vealitzek writes from the heart. I read this tale of anguish, and of triumph, from cover to cover without stopping. You will too.”
—Stephen Wetta, author of If Jack’s in Love
“The Rooms Are Filled is a tender novel about the beauty and sadness of those simply learning to live out loud. An ode to truth, the departed who are never truly gone, and the resilient human heart.”
—Susan Henderson, author of Up from the Blue

“As you read about the seemingly quiet, Midwestern lives of the people of The Rooms Are Filled, you will suddenly realize that you desperately want them to get everything they’re hoping for.”
—John Warner, Chicago Tribune columnist and author of The Funny Man
