Jesse Q Sutanto grew up shuttling back and forth between Jakarta and Singapore and sees both cities as her homes. She has a B.A. from UC Berkeley and a Masters degree from Oxford University, though she has yet to figure out a way of saying that without sounding obnoxious. She is currently living back in Jakarta on the same street as her parents and about seven hundred meddlesome aunties. When she's not tearing out her hair over her latest WIP, she spends her time baking and playing FPS games. Oh, and also being a mom to her two kids.

Thank you so much for visiting my little book page. This question is such an important one to me. The short answer is: I got the idea for this book because I was stalked when I was a teenager, the same age Delilah is in the book. It was terrifying and awful, and to this day, when I think about it, it shakes me how freaking lucky I was to have been able to escape the situation (I moved away to college).

I promise I will come back at a later date and share the full story, but for now, this is why. I remember how helpless I felt, and how absolutely trapped, and I hope that anyone who's in a similar situation will read this book and feel--I don't know, a little bit less scared and a lot less alone.
