Dear Librarian:

One of the hardest things to go through is being "the new kid". I changed schools in 9th grade, and I'll never forget those first few months as 'the outsider'. I'm sure we've all felt like that at one time or another, so it seemed like a fun starting place for my book POSER. Situations can be so awkward and horrible, but realizing we can look back and laugh can make all the difference in the world!

Up for grabs are signed copies of POSER! Enter to win one by emailing me at To hear more about the book, and for some fun surf tips, visit

And, for a chance to win a signed, custom POSER surfboard (yes, that's right - a real surfboard!), designed by world-class shaper CSH, see my website [] for details.

I'd love to visit your school or library via Skype, or possibly in person! Drop me an email for more information.

Thanks for reading

"Tallulah isn't always graceful or even gracious, but her dedication to surfing and resolve in standing up to her bullies make her a believable heroine. She sometimes wipes out in the boy and friendship departments, but she also gets back up and tries to set things right. The beauty and danger of surfing are captured through Tallulah's mile-a-minute, often funny descriptions." -Kirkus Reviews
