beschrijving

From the author of the "New York Times" bestseller "All the Bright Places" comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone and love someone for who they truly are.
Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed America s Fattest Teen. But no one s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom s death, she s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. "In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything."

over de schrijver(s)By the time I was ten, I had already written numerous songs, a poem for Parker Stevenson ("If there were a Miss America for men, You would surely win"), two autobiographies (All About Me and My Life in Indiana: I Will Never Be Happy Again), a Christmas story, several picture books (which I illustrated myself) featuring the Doodle Bugs from Outer Space, a play about Laura Ingalls Wilder's sister entitled Blindness Strikes Mary, a series of prison mysteries, a collection of short stories featuring me as the main character (an internationally famous rock star detective), and a partially finished novel about Vietnam. I was also an excellent speller from a very early age.

In 2000, I started writing full-time, and I haven't stopped... I've written nine books (#9 will be out Oct 4, 2016), and when I'm not working on the tenth, I'm writing the screenplay for All the Bright Places, contributing to my web magazine, Germ, thinking up new books, and dabbling in TV. I am always writing. (less)
