I am indeed writing more MG books! WILLOWS VS WOLVERINES, which is about a boys-vs-girls prank war at a sleepaway camp, is coming out in April of next year. I'm also working on a collaborative MG book with six other authors called SEVEN SIDES TO EVERY STORY, which takes place of the course of one night at a middle school dance. I hope to have lots more in the future!(less)

Hey guys, so 2018 is almost ending (*cries*) and I still have tons of books that I haven't read yet. I'm currently reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and I'm planning to finish The Raven King soon after. But my question is, since I'm really indecisive to choose which, please help me choose which book should I read next?? If you haven't read any of these, please just choose the ones that seems interesting. Thank you! :D

“So damn much,” he says back, only it comes out, “Dude.”
He still won’t meet my eyes.”
