Publisher Comments:

From the author of PERFECT and LUSH, another novel that tells it like it is.

The perils of dealing with a new stepfamily are illuminated with the same Blume-like heart and wit that Natasha Friend brought to PERFECT and LUSH.

About the Author

Award-winning author of Perfect, Natasha Friend was born in Norwich, New York. Upon receiving her B.A. in Psychology in 1994 from Bates College, Natasha went on to Clemson University to earn her M.A. in English in 1997. As a former camp director and English teacher, Natasha enjoys singing and song-lyric writing and plans to write more books in the future. Her first book, Perfect, poignantly probes the hushed struggles of body image, eating disorders, and grief. Perfect has won the Milkweed Prize for Childrens Literature and Book Senses Pick. When commenting on Perfect, Booklist wrote, “Friend elevates what could have been just another problem novel to a truly worthwhile read of great interest to many girls.”

Natashas newest title, Lush, boldly delves into the tumultuous life and mind of a thirteen-year-old girl whose father is an alcoholic. Samantha must cope with sadness, secrecy, and shame in addition to her own teenage trials. Just when Samanthas skin toughens and emotions numb, it gets worse for her. Natasha wrote this book in an effort to spotlight the proverbial “elephant in the room,” so that its presence is acknowledged and removed.

Natasha currently resides in Connecticut with her husband, Erik, and sons, Jack and Ben.
