About the Author

Randall Platt

likes to find the story in everything. She tries to wake up every day at four a.m. to write, and on a good day she will write fifteen to twenty-five pages. If she caps it off with a game of handball or a run, it's a perfect day. She is an award-winning author of fiction for both adults and young adults, and her novels have enlightened readers on topics including the 1918 flu pandemic, life on the home front in World War II, life on an Oregon cattle ranch, and the world of baseball in 1898. She keeps a database of historically accurate slang terms, which allows the voices she uses in her writing to feel authentic. Visit her at www.plattbooks.com, where you can read about her favorite books and her tips for boosting creativity.

Reviews

"A heart-rending and memorable picture of 19th-century challenges for girls with unusual bodies."--Kirkus Reviews
Platt proves again she is unafraid to tackle intensely emotional issues for young readers in this beautifully written piece... Like its title, it inspires both curiosity and delight."--Booklist
