About the Author

Books have always been a part of Wendelin Van Draanen’s life. Her mother taught her to read at an early age, and she has fond memories of story time with her father, when she and her brothers would cuddle up around him and listen to him read stories.

Growing up, Van Draanen was a tomboy who loved to be outside chasing down adventure. She did not decide that she wanted to be an author until she was an adult. When she tried her hand at writing a screenplay about a family tragedy, she found the process quite cathartic and from that experience, turned to writing novels for adults. She soon stumbled upon the joys of writing for children.

Feedback from her readers is Van Draanen’s greatest reward for writing. “One girl came up to me and told me I changed her life. It doesn’t get any better than that,” she said. Van Draanen hopes to leave her readers with a sense that they have the ability to steer their own destiny—that individuality is a strength, and that where there’s a will, there’s most certainly a way.

Wendelin Van Draanen is the winner of the 1999 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Children’s Mystery Book for Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief and lives with her husband and two sons in California.

wow this book is great! I think many of you would love this book. It's through the prespective of two kids, Bryce and Juli. Juli has liked Bryce since second grade while Bryce has hated Juli since second grade. As the book unravels Juli starts to see Bryce through a different light and begins to dislike him. Bryce on the other hand has truly flipped and and begins to fall for Juli in a big way!. This book is both funny and sad but through the end you really really wish there was a sequel. Although Ms. Van Draanen ( the author) as many times said to her readers that she will not do a sequel maybe a letter from you can convince her!
