I read the sci-fi or fantasy book probably around 1992, having gotten it from my junior high school's library. All I can remember about it is that the main character was a teenage female named Juniper. Her mom had named her after the tree. She had a male best friend. I believe she also liked painting.

  • @Valorum I concede that you could be right. But since I only read sci-fi/fantasy books, this seemed the logical place to post. Was hoping others may have known what it was.

    The Juniper Game? Jun 5, 2023 at 18:50
  • Juniper, Gentian and Rosemary? Though it's late 90's and Gentian is the main character...

1 Answer 1


The book is The Juniper Game by Sherryl Jordan. It was published in 1991, which fits with you reading it in 1992.

The Juniper Game

Juniper is the teenage girl, and her male friend is Dylan. Once she discovers Dylan can receive telepathic communications from her she embarks on experiments with him that take a dark turn.

  • Thank you so much! This was definitely it.
