Olivia is Anna Wintour’s worst nightmare, and she doesn’t give a shit. She’s wanted to go into fashion design her whole life, and nothing is going to stop her fabulous plus sized self. Not even her boss from hell, or the fact that she’s the fat Cinderella of the most exclusive lingerie store in Bushwick, Ohio. She’s sworn off dating, because she is focused, dammit, and will not get distracted by anyone in college. She has shit to do and places to go, be it on her own with the clothing she makes, or with the girls in Twelve Beats In A Bar, the all-female a cappella group she’s part of.


Why do group projects always have to ruin everything?


Thierry Acosta has it all. Shortstop on Bushwick University’s baseball team, amazing grades in college, everything he could want. When he gets paired with Olivia for a group project, things are only getting better. And then his dad loses his job, and Thierry’s life falls apart. He can’t manage to get himself to practice, to class… anywhere. He’s got the scars on his wrists to prove that this has happened before, but he thought he was better. He thought he could deal with something like this. The cuts on his thighs say otherwise.

Before they know it, Olivia and Thierry’s relationship has gone from casual project partners to not-so-casual more-than-friends. But when things take a turn for the worse, can they face the growing reality of a relationship that’s become much serious than either of them expected – or wanted?

Ten Quotes That Helped Inspire This Much Space.

There is a certain magic the right words have when they show up in your life exactly when you need them. The following ten quotes have been ones that have shown up when I needed them most, and have also helped inspire parts of This Much Space.



1.       Be brave, my darling. You have faced dark times before and you’re still here now.


2.       Nobody tells you

it is okay to call yourself beautiful

it is okay to smile at mirrors

and it is perfectly fine

to say your own eyes are pretty


it is wonderful to love your waist

and your legs

regardless of their size

and you are not conceited

if you use your fingers to list

everything you’re good at

rather than point

at all your flaws


you can acknowledge you’re smart

and that you will go places

and you will be someone

greater than your mistakes


you can’t always expect

other people to believe in yourself

for you.



3.       In the end, you tried and you cared, and sometimes, that is enough.


4.       There will be haters, there will be doubters, there will be non-believers, and then there will be you, proving them wrong.


5.       You have galaxies inside your head. Stop letting people tell you you cannot shine.


6.       For a star to be born,

There is one thing that

Must happen: a gaseous

Nebula must collapse.


So collapse.


This is not your destruction.


This is your birth.



7.       So this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am

Both happy and sad

And I’m still trying to figure out

How that could be.

-Perks Of Being A Wallflower


8.       And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. –Roald Dahl


9.       It is astonishing

How short a time it can take

For very wonderful things to happen.


10.   And in the end,

We are all just humans,

Drunk on the idea

That love,

Only love,

Can heal our brokenness.

-Christopher Poindexter

Author Information:

Preferably things with angst and love. And things that require chocolate. She’s the author of the NA contemporaries HEART BREATHS and ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG.
THIS MUCH SPACE is the second book in her new series, TWELVE BEATS IN A BAR.
KK spends way too much time on Twitter (where she can be found as @kkhendin), and rambles on occasion over at
