About the Author

Toni Runkle began her writing career at age 4 when she scrawled on a lampshade in crayon. Despite getting in BIG trouble, she continued writing (books, blogs, screenplays). She lives in Valencia, California with her husband and daughter who are understandably grateful that she now writes on computers instead of furniture.
Hailing from a small town in South Dakota, Stephen Webb now makes his home in the small town of Los Angeles, where he enjoys annoying his wife and daughter by singing show tunes at the top of his lungs. He loves softball, cheeseburgers, and his family, although not necessarily in that order.

Reviews

" Runkle and Webb deliver an empowering message about striving to be true to oneself for middle school readers.
" - Kirkus
"Kat learns a few home truths throughout the course of this book, but she takes responsibility and reevaluates a few aspects of herself. Mostly it's a book about friendship, loyalty, and doing the right thing; perfect for a high school library! " - Wondrous Reads
"Runkle and Webb debut with a 21st-century take on the idea that "All that glitters is not gold"...[and the book] carries some emotional heft." - Publishers Weekly
"If there's one thing parents and tweens can take away from "Glitter Girl," it is that friendship is something we can't take for granted, at any age." - Whittier Daily News
"Glitter Girl tackles the very important topic of friendship vs. popularity, hitting on one common issue many of today's teens face: The need for approval from others. " - Girls' Life Magazine
"This is a fun read with a powerful message of what can happen when the lure of popularity and fame gets in the way of best friends. Perfect for girls who love a little bit of glamour and fashion, Glitter Girl sparkles while it also shows tweens how your best friend doesn't have to be exactly like you." - The Parents Connection
