Kendra Fortmeyer grew up in the lush woods of North Carolina, surrounded by piles of books. She got the idea for her magical realist YA debut novel, HOLE IN THE MIDDLE, after a mediocre date, and also after her left lung unexpectedly collapsed. On a related note, she would like you to know that your body is spectacular and if anyone tells you otherwise, you may kick them in the teeth. Future mermaid, aspiring feminist folk hero, perpetual magical realist. Currently feeling all of the feels, and believing in you.

Kendra is reading Today Tonight Tomorrow: Rachel Lynn Solomon is truly the queen of YA romance. A sweet, steamy, and wonderfully generous novel. I'm so happy for the teens who get to learn love and life in a world with books like this.
