Dear Librarian:

"There are people who make things happen, people to whom things happen, and then there's everyone else:those who hang around and watch.I've been watching for too long and that's got to change now." —Maggie Brooklyn from GIRL'S BEST FRIEND.

Maggie Brooklyn is all about adventure and agency. She's inspired by two of my favorite characters: Harriet the Spy and Nancy Drew.

Like traditional sleuths, Maggie cares about truth and justice. But she's got plenty of regular-kid dilemmas, too: a secret crush on a cute boy, a sometimes-annoying twin brother, and an ex-best friend who's still super-mean.

My goal is to write books about smart and thoughtful kids for smart and thoughtful kids. Books that last on the shelves and in readers' minds. I hope I accomplished that with GIRL'S BEST FRIEND: A MAGGIE BROOKLYN MYSTERY. Please let me know!

GIVEAWAYS AND TOUR: Want a sneak peak at Girl's Best Friend? Email for your chance to get a signed copy! Plus, I'll be traveling this fall and hope to meet you; check back at my website for tour details.

Thanks so much,
Leslie Margolis
