Most people know me for my weird nonfiction books, and I love them.  But my first work of YA fiction -- GIRL MEETS BOY -- comes out from Chronicle Books in January of 2012. 

If you've ever wondered how two people -- one boy and one girl -- could see the same turn of events completely differently, GIRL MEETS BOY is the book for you.

Some of the best YA authors in the business wrote stories for GIRL MEETS BOY, including:

James Howe, Ellen Wittlinger, Joseph Bruchac, Cynthia Leitich-Smith, Terry Trueman, Rita Williams-Garcia, Sara Ryan, Randy Powell, Terry Davis, Rebecca Davis, Chris Crutcher and me!

When I asked these bold writers to tackle the task, I asked them to hold nothing back -- to tell the stories they've always wanted to tell -- and they rose to the challenge. These may be works of fiction, but they are loaded with glimmers of truth, so you're bound to see someone you know.

I hope you meet a few characters you'll even love. Because in the end, isn't love what we're all hoping to find? The power of love can be transformational -- especially when we find the courage to love who we really are, inside.

Happy reading!
