“The world, I sometimes think, is filled with someone liking someone who likes someone else who likes someone else.”
Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Crazy Beautiful

“It is amazing how much you can see in other people - the good and the bad, we won't even talk about the ugly - if you just shut up and watch them.”
Lauren Baratz-Logsted, Crazy Beautiful

“There are two good reasons for being nice to the underdogs in this life. One, because if the underdog grows up to be the kind of person that starts shooting, you'll have a chance at survival. Two, because it's the right thing to do the third reason being that the wheel of fortune is always spinning, spinning. And just because you're at the top today doesn't mean it'll always be so. When you're at the bottom, you'll want someone to be there for you too.”

Lauren Fans write every day asking me to write more Sisters 8 books and I'd love to, but it's up to the publisher, not me.


message 5: by Emma

Emma do you think someone will ask you to write a sisters 8 book again


Lauren I always have fun writing books!


message 3: by Emma

Emma I have a question. do you write books for fun sometimes.


Lauren Thanks, Emma. I'm glad you like The Sisters 8. However, the majority of my books are for teens or adults so I think the only other ones that would be appropriate at this time are those in the Hat City Middle School series. Thanks again!


message 1: by Emma

Emma I really like your Sisters Eight books so I brt I will like all of your books!
