Marjorie Jackson to Publish Book About Split From Josiah Duggar

by at .

Back in August, Josiah Duggar and Marjorie Jackson broke up after just a few weeks of "courting."

Shortly thereafter, we learned that  Marjorie was planning to write a tell-all about her brief involvement with the 19 Kids and Counting clan.

Naturally, family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar was none too pleased by the prospect of having his family's secrets exposed by an ambitious teen, and we're sure he was thrilled when Marjorie and Josiah got back together last month.

(There were rumors that Jim Bob engineered the reconciliation to shut Marjorie up, but that's a conversation for another time.)

Now, however, Radar Online is reporting that Marjorie's book deal is still a go, and the Duggars might still be running scared. 

The book has been re-imagined as guide to romance for Christian teens, but that doesn't mean the finished product will be entirely Duggar-friendly.

Fans of the show know that the Duggars' courtship rules are incredibly harsh, and if Marjorie writes about so much as kissing Josiah, it could be seriously humiliating for the family that popularized the "side-hug."

“Romantic sparks are fickle and unreliable—here one day, faded the next,” Marjorie recently wrote in a blog post about the project.

Based on that description, it sounds as though young Marjorie is 1. a student of the Stephenie Meyer school of romance writing, and 2. planning to cash in on the ups and downs of her relationship with Josiah.

It might be time to worry, Jim Bob.
