I write novels for young adults. 

My most famous books are the Uglies series, set in a future where cosmetic surgery is compulsory when you turn 16. The series consists of a trilogy—UGLIES, PRETTIES and SPECIALS—as well as a companion novel, EXTRAS. Last year, we serialized UGLIES here on Wattpad and it's still available to read.

After the UGLIES came the LEVIATHAN trilogy. It’s a steampunk retelling of World War I, illustrated by the incomparable Keith Thompson. It features adventure, walking machines, and living airships! Then last September, I published AFTERWORLDS. It's about a young writer named Darcy who gets a publishing deal, defers college, and goes to live in NYC. There, she rewrites her novel, grows up, falls in love, and meets lots of wacky characters from the world of YA publishing. Actually, that's only half of AFTERWORLDS. The other half is Darcy's novel (all of it!) about a girl who gets caught up in a terrorist attack, plays dead to survive, and does so well that she thinks herself into the afterworld. So it's two books in one.

My next book is ZEROES. It’s about six kids with superpowers...that kind of suck. It's a collaboration, written with Margo Lanagan and Deb Biancotti, two Australian writers who are close friends of mine, and is the first of a trilogy. ZEROES will be available September 29, 2015, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the sneak peek here on Wattpad.
