I'm thrilled to announce the Author Tour for Click'd! I'll be with the amazing Alexandra Bracken and her middle-grade debut, The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding. Along the way, we'll be joined by our friends Ally Condie and Elizabeth Eulberg. We hope you can come see us while we're on the road. We want to
FROM MY DAD TO MY DAUGHTER: PASSING ON A PASSION FOR TECH I’ve never been a big fan of gender roles. When I was a little girl, I played with Matchbox cars and Barbie’s. I rode a bike and a skateboard. I climbed trees and played dress-up. I hung out at the mall
I was absolutely stunned when I learned that my first novel, Time Between Us, was going to be published. But then I got my first offer from a foreign publisher, and that was even harder to get my mind around. My book was going to be published in other languages? It seemed too wonderful
They're finally here, friends! I have two new books out in the great big world today: Time and Time Again, the gorgeous new bind-up of my time travel series, and the paperback edition of Every Last Word. Time and Time Again is a collection of my two time travel
My author copies of the Every Last Word paperback just arrived and wow... They're absolutely beautiful! Thank you, Hyperion Teens. You've outdone yourselves again! It's so pretty. And lightweight.

I’m so honored and thrilled to announce that Mit anderen Worten: Ich (the German edition of Every Last Word) has been nominated for the Deutsche Jugendliteraturpreis, the highest honor for children’s literature in Germany. I’m completely blown away, to say the least. I love this edition. This stunning cover has always been
I recently discovered The Giving Keys and had this beauty made. I'll wear it for a while, but as you can see, it's not mine to keep. Just like Caroline said, we pass the key on. I'm not sure who this is going to, but someday it will find its new owner. It might
Little Do We Know & Click'd edits: My worlds collided! I’m finalizing a new draft of Little Do We Know and working on first pass pages for Click'd. My brain hurts! Fun fact: You’re looking at 141,296 words here. (Don’t even ask me how many I’ve thrown out along the way!)
I fell in love with Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty when I was writing Every Last Word. One of my therapist friends told me about it. She uses it with all her clients to give them something to do with their hands while they talk. She believes the tactile activity helps them open up. If you’ve
Spending a rainy day in my favorite chair with my WIP, Little Do We Know. I can’t wait for you to meet Emory, Hannah and Luke.
