Hi! I'm the author of books for teens, tweens and toddlers. Out now is a YA adventure-thriller-roadtrip-romance: THE FALL OF GRACE. I'm also the co-author of the Disney-Hyperion picture book series COOKIESAURUS REX. Book one is out now, and COOKIESAURUS CHRISTMAS is coming Sept 2018.

I live and sweat in Phoenix, Arizona with my hubby and a new puppy who is training us.

I'm not sure where it comes from, but I actually think realistic young adult novels today are changing that. I can't speak to every book, of course, but I've read many novels that show a grittier, more realistic vision of addiction, and mental illness. I can tell you that for me, personally, one of my goals while writing DIE FOR YOU was to address the type of romanticization you're asking about. I wanted to strip the romanticism from the idea of "dying for love." I wanted to show it for what it is: manipulation and emotional abuse. I hope that answers your question. Best, Amy(less)
Amy Fellner Dominy Hi Christine. Thanks for thinking of me. I think you mean the list of books by Jewish authors? Yes, I'd love to be listed there, as well. :)

Love the set-up of this one--stuck in a library for a weekend. Also loved that the main character struggles with anxiety, something I think that a lot of teens (and humans, in general) can relate to.

A book with so much heart! THE FIRST TO KNOW is about family and secrets and betrayal and mostly about love. Beautifully told with an ending that gives you all the feels.
