Jessica Brody knew from a young age that she wanted to be a writer. She started self "publishing" her own books when she was seven years old, binding the pages together with cardboard, wallpaper samples and electrical tape.

In May of 2005, Jessica quit her job to follow her dream of becoming a published author.

In four short years, Jessica has sold nine novels (two adult novels to St. Martin's Press and seven young adult novels to Farrar, Straus, Giroux.) THE FIDELITY FILES, her debut, released in stores (in real binding) in J

For years, I’ve been dreaming of writing a middle grade (tween) novel and last year, that dream finally came true. I sold my first middle grade novel, ADDIE BELL’S SHORTCUT TO GROWING UP, to the lovely people at Delacorte/Random House. And now I’m thrilled to share the first ever peek at the amazing cover (plus an excerpt from the book!)


You guys, I can’t tell you how much I simply LOVE this cov...

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can't get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don't care who you are. What goes around comes around. That's how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.”
Jessica Brody, The Karma Club

“I mean, how sad is it that I needed a freaking Facebook profile to tell me my boyfriend was no longer my boyfriend? As if Facebook is the official record keeper of relationships and you have to confirm all breakups and hookups with this sacred online registrar before you can consider them certified and approved.”
Jessica Brody, The Karma Club

“Forgetting who you are is so much more complicated than simply forgetting your name. It's also forgetting your dreams. Your aspirations. What makes you happy. What you pray you'll never have to live without. It's meeting yourself for the first time, and not being sure of your first impression.”
Jessica Brody, Unremembered
