What I Write

My young adult novels are dark, edgy, and realistic. Although I love paranormal and fantasy books, I prefer to create stories that could really happen (and in many cases, really are happening). For me, the echo of a story set firmly in the real world always haunts me long after I've read the final word. If you like Ellen Hopkins, Jay Asher, and Neal Shusterman, you might like my books, too.

Five Faves

Every month I choose five books that I thought were amazing, highlighting one spotlight book.  I try to keep my lists diverse in genre (although always YA) as well as popularity (some unknowns, some bestsellers).  Have you read some of my faves?  If so, leave your reactions below in the comment section!  I'd love to hear your reviews and I'd love suggestions for my To Be Read list!  For details on my archived reviews, simply click the title above each pic to read my original blog post.
