Jenna helps people. No matter who you are or where you are in the world, when life strikes you a blow, Jenna is there for you. Because, like you, she has suffered – she’s lived with chronic fatigue for over 6 years now, and she runs this blog to help you cope.

Jenna’s also smart. She knows that opening up her life to the whole world has its dangers. But when Davids comment lands on her blog, the temptation to find out more is impossible to resist.

The Orator is a messily human thriller about the struggle of self-help and online identity.
