Sarah Kapit lives in Bellevue, Washington with her husband and their goofy orange cat. She earned a PhD in history from the University of California, Los Angeles, and she's always happy to talk about the history of women, medicine, and any other history geek topic. She has a longstanding involvement in the disability rights and neurodiversity movements, and serves as chairperson of the Association for Autistic Community. Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen! is her first novel.
Praise for Get a Grip, Vivy Cohen! Schneider Family Book Award Honor ★ "This vivid epistolary tale captures Vivy's growing sense of her own capabilities. . . . A satisfying baseball story that never minimizes the challenges of autism but celebrates skill, determination, and love for the game." --Kirkus, starred review ★ A standout. --School Library Journal, starred review ★ "The story is so undeniably charming, the sports so exciting, the protagonist so sympathetic that readers will get sucked in. Kapit's debut is an exceedingly rare #OwnVoices account of an autistic girl--centered on that character--that gives a clear, authentic, and universally relatable representation of autism while telling a positive, upbeat, feel-good story about a girl's fight to play the game she loves." --Booklist, starred review
