I didn’t grow up with you, but your books greatly influenced my life. I first discovered you in the YA department of Guilderland Public Library in New York while I was a library graduate student. I was new to YA books, having moved mostly to adult fiction in the 7th grade. I had read dozens of the Sweet Valley High and some Freshman Dorm books, but back then the explosion of YA books had yet to happen.
