A quick note from Evie: I debated long and hard whether I was going to post this on the blog today. We received Amazingly Broken for review long before the plagiarism issue came up and Debbie (our Chick Lit expert) agreed to work with Jordin Williams. She interviewed the author and wrote a review, and while I obviously do not support plagiarism or authors who plagiarise other authors' work, I do appreciate my co-bloggers and value the time they spend reviewing books for Bookish. That being said, please keep in mind that this post is more of an appreciation of Debbie's time and hard work than anything else. Plagiarism is wrong.

NOW, if you want to find out what the whole plagiarism thing is all about, I recommend reading up about it here: DEAR AUTHOR.
Personally, I am appalled by this whole situation and very disgusted with Jordin Williams (or whatever HIS name is, cause according to Jaime McGuire - one of the victims of Williams' plagiarism - Jordin is in fact male.
Bookish does NOT support Williams and/or Amazingly Broken in any way. Plagiarism is disgusting and people making money of other people's hard work should be punished severely.
