The Every Other Weekend Makeup Collection is HERE!

Available today only! Thanks to the overwhelming response to the EVERY OTHER WEEKEND eyeshadow palette that came out for a single day last year, I’m thrilled to announce that we are expanding into a full collection inspired by EVERY OTHER WEEKEND, Adam and Jolene’s “pitch-perfect love story.” This collection–which is available for ONE DAY ONLY–includes a kissable demi-matte lipstick, illuminating powder pearls so your skin can glow as much as your heart will while reading, a lengthening waterproof mascara so you can cry your eyes when you get to the end, and a skin-smoothing primer to help hide the “heady book hangover that is so very worth it.”.


The collection includes:

⋆Lengthening Mascara in the shade “Jolene’s Soul” which is an intense black.
⋆Long-wear Lipstick in the shade “Adam’s Blush” which is a soft peachy pink.
⋆Priming Balm, a brightening and skin smoothing primer that makes your makeup last longer.
⋆Brightening Mineral Pearls are illuminating powder pearls with light-diffusing properties that add a moonlit glow to the skin.

Of course, you’ll want the book to go along with the collection! EVERY OTHER WEEKEND is available in hardcover, paperback, ebook, and audiobook! And unlike the makeup collection, which is only here for April 1, 2021, you can purchase a copy of the book anytime. I’ll even sign and personalize copies ordered through my local independent bookstore: Changing Hands Bookstore. Check out some of the praise for the book:

Indigo Books Best of 2020
Amazon Teacher’s Pick for 2020

“Johnson beautifully evokes the tender romance that eventually builds between them [Adam and Jolene] after their first encounters, offering readers access to the two teens’ inner thoughts and fragile psyches. Jolene’s loneliness, especially, will break hearts…  The positive, not overly simplistic resolution to the complicated story will touch readers.”

“Johnson (Even If I Fall, 2019, etc.) has written a complex and emotionally charged character-driven story that explores a variety of painfully human themes, including loss and emotional abuse. Adam’s and Jolene’s struggles will draw readers in, and the slow-burning romance will touch readers’ hearts… Heart-wrenching and hopeful—a reminder that we can change our stories.”
Kirkus Reviews

“In addition to the tender love story, the book takes on a number of important issues for young adults including divorce, loss, grief, family dynamics, relationship control, and sexual assault. The two main characters are well developed and teen readers will easily empathize with their emotions, their family conflicts, and the events that unfold in their lives… Romance fans will especially enjoy this title, as it delves into many family and relationship issues.”
School Library Journal

“Heartfelt and soul-probing, this is a book that will leave readers with a heady book hangover- that is so very worth it.”

About the Book


Adam Moynihan’s life used to be awesome. Straight As, close friends and a home life so perfect that it could have been a TV show straight out of the 50s. Then his oldest brother died. Now his fun-loving mom cries constantly, he and his remaining brother can’t talk without fighting, and the father he always admired proved himself a coward by moving out when they needed him most.

Jolene Timber’s life is nothing like the movies she loves–not the happy ones anyway. As an aspiring director, she should know, because she’s been reimagining her life as a film ever since she was a kid. With her divorced parents at each others throats and using her as a pawn, no amount of mental re-editing will give her the love she’s starving for.

Forced to spend every other weekend in the same apartment building, the boy who thinks forgiveness makes him weak and the girl who thinks love is for fools begin an unlikely friendship. The weekends he dreaded and she endured soon become the best part of their lives. But when one’s life begins to mend while the other’s spirals out of control, they realize that falling in love while surrounded by its demise means nothing is ever guaranteed.

About Abigail

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend. She is represented by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds Literary Agency.
