But when they get to Iowa, even Kaitlin has to admit it's not a total disaster. Amy and Jazz her eighth grade class seem extra friendly. But what's with that weird kid Leon who won't talk to anyone?

Author information

I'm weird - there's no denying it. I've never fitted in, but I think that's the secret to being a good author: you spend more time observing people than actually being involved in their conversations. You learn a lot this way. I love learning and writing about people. I'm studying psychology, and I've also started writing a solo novel! It's about something pretty complicated and for now the plot details are sealed (but let's just say it's not going to be along the lines of the Kaitlin series). I still have four guinea pigs, and my sister Katie is doing great as well. Hope to write lots in the future, and also work my way up to owning my own psychology practice (only seven years of school to go!). To all junior writers out there, keep reading and writing heaps and don't be afraid to show your work to other people. My friends (people I occasionally hold hostage) have given me some constructive criticism which has helped me a lot. Never say die (I stole that, I know), and good things will come to those who work!show more
