About this author

Antony John was born in England and raised on a balanced diet of fish and chips, obscure British comedies, and ABBA's Greatest Hits. In a fit of teenage rebellion, he decided to pursue a career in classical music, culminating in a BA from Oxford University and a PhD from Duke University. Along the way, he worked as an ice cream seller on a freezing English beach, a tour guide in the Netherlands, a chauffeur in Switzerland, a barista in Seattle, and a university professor. Writing by night, he spends his days as a stay-at-home dad—the only job that allows him to wear his favorite pair of sweatpants all the time. He lives in St. Louis with his family.



I have some awesome news to share! ELEMENTAL has been nominated for the 2014-15 Truman Readers Award, voted on by Missouri middle school students. Last year, there were over 100,000 votes cast for the award, which goes to show how many enthusiastic middle grade readers there are in Missouri.


Huge thanks to the committee, and to Missouri teens for giving it a read!

" YAY! First review! :) Okay, since 1) I read the ARC of the book, and it most likely will change, and 2) I don't want to spoil it for anyone, I'm going to keep it short and sweet! (well, try to keep it short, anyway)

I'm not going to give a synopsis of THE LUCY VARIATIONS because the publisher's cover copy at the top of the page does a pretty darn good job of bringing us up to speed. Instead, I'm going to give three reasons why everyone should read this book:

“Don’t worry about wanting to change; start worrying when you don’t feel like changing anymore. And in the meantime, enjoy every version of yourself you ever meet, because not everybody who discovers their true identity likes what they find.”
Antony John, Five Flavors of Dumb

“He was depressed. He was addicted to heroin. And I think there comes a time when all the beauty in the world just isn’t enough.”
Antony John, Five Flavors of Dumb

“COOL·NESS [KOOL-NIS] -noun
CATCHING your mom gazing at the crazy crowd like she finally gets it
WATCHING your dad head-banging like he’s Finn’s twin brother
LEARNING that your new friends Tash and Kallie are a thousand times more complicated than you realized, and loving them for it
FEELING every one of your boyfriend’s pounding drumbeats, and thinking it’s the most romantic music ever written
REALIZING you’re completely unique . . . even in a crowd”
