"Freesia lives on a seemingly magical island where every whim is answered in this nifty sci-fi comedy . . . Freesia's plenty spunky, and so is this hilarious book." Kirkus Reviews
As a kid, I lost myself in books and TV shows. Prairies, genie bottles, spaceships: all beat suburban New Jersey. In the days before video games and online role playing, escapism only went so far, but now, with two teenagers of my own, I wonder how technology affects a young person's friendships, mindsets, and education.
In BUBBLE WORLD, my latest young adult novel, Freesia Summers lives the ultimate escapist fantasy on an island paradise populated by gorgeous, party-loving teens. Too good to be true? Definitely. But when a blackout lands Freesia in an all-too-real American high school, she decides that reality is overrated.
