About the Author
E.K. Johnston is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of several YA novels, including the L.A. Time Book Prize finalist The Story of Owen and Star Wars: Ahsoka. Her novel A Thousand Nights was shortlisted for the Governor General's Award. The New York Times called The Story of Owen "a clever first step in the career of a novelist who, like her troubadour heroine, has many more songs to sing" and in its review of Exit, Pursued by a Bear, the Globe & Mail called Johnston "the Meryl Streep of YA," with "limitless range." E.K. Johnston lives in southwestern Ontario.
"Johnston is at her best sinking her pen into the guts and glory of girlhood and Pretty Furious is Johnston at her truth-telling best. A novel about the painful intricacies of small-town life, the hurt of growing up and seeing the hypocrisy in others, and the power of female friendship." --Tess Sharpe, author of The Girls I've Been

"Short and to the point, the story packs a punch with direct prose and strong-willed characters. Add this issue-driven contemporary novel to teen collectionsfor readers who enjoy revenge plots and books like Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian's Burn for Burn."--Booklist

"What begins as a passing frustration turns into a full-fledged vigilante mission when five best friends make birthday wishes to challenge the narrow-minded viewpoints of their small Canadian town in this feminist thriller."--PW

"Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a fantasy novel bc a girl in rural Ontario gets an abortion and no one judges her. Pretty Furious is the companion horror."--@stellarbeesreads
