DEAR BULLY: SEVENTY AUTHORS TELL THEIR STORIES is now out! Look for it at your favorite independent bookstore, or you can order it here! I'm honored to have a piece in this anthology, which I hope will be a valuable resource in the fight against bullying.

I'm excited to be participating in Stages on Pages, a group of authors with arts-related books who will be making appearances all over the country. Find out if we're coming to your area by visiting our website.

You can hear me talking about and reading from RIVAL in a podcast from HarperTeen. Listen right here.

RIVAL got a 5-star review in the British "Teen Now" magazine. Check it out! Plus, RIVAL was featured as a "must read" in the April/May issue of Girl's Life Magazine!
