I am an author of YA novels, as well as a children's book editor, living and working in New York City. I am a native New Yorker, born and raised in Queens, in an apartment full of books and different languages; my parents hail from Eastern Europe and instilled in me a love of literature from around the globe. I attended the Bronx High School of Science and Vassar College, and spent a formative summer in the South of France, which inspired my latest novel, TWO SUMMERS

When Summer Everett makes a split-second decision, her summer divides into two parallel worlds. In one, she travels to France, where she's dreamed of going: a land of chocolate croissants, handsome boys and art museums. In the other, she remains home, in her ordinary suburb, where she expects her ordinary life to continue but nothing is as it seems. In both summers, she will fall in love and discover new sides of herself. What may break her, though, is a terrible family secret, one she can't hide from anywhere.
