About the Author

Lisa Greenwald is the author of the TBH books, the Friendship List series, the Pink & Green trilogy, and several other novels for tweens and teens. A graduate of the New School's MFA program in writing for children, she lives in New York City with her husband, daughters, and mini Bernedoodle, Kibbitz.


"In this fine successor to Lauren Myracle's TTYL and its sequels, Greenwald (11 Before 12) realistically captures the language of texting tweens, including exuberant use of emoji, and how mistakes can be made and tone misunderstood amid rapid-fire digital conversations."--Publishers Weekly
"Get ready to fall in love with these girls who use their humor and wit (and lots and lots of emojis) to right wrongs and build bridges."--ALA Booklist
"Greenwald successfully blends emojis and text to bring the high drama and emotional changes of middle school to life. This first in a new series for preteens and young teens who value friendship and doing the right thing is pretty endearing."--Kirkus Reviews
"Srlsy, idk how Lisa does it. These characters are so real! XOXOXO!! New York Times bestselling author
"This gem of a book is sprinkled with just enough muscle. To all my tween book BFFs: you will adore TBH, This Is So Awkward!"--Terra Elan McVoy, bookseller at Little Shop of Stories and author of Drive Me Crazy
"Lisa Greenwald goes beyond emojis to the power, both hurtful and helpful, inherent in this concentrated form of communication. Young readers (and their parents) will find characters who are cringe-worthily familiar!"--Starr LaTronica, Director, Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro, VT
"Enticing and readable."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for 11 BEFORE 12: "Omigosh, I LOVE Lisa Greenwald's new book. Brilliant, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and heartbreaking (in a good way), 11 BEFORE 12 is probably the best middle school friendship ever. Totes on fleek-legit!"--Lauren Myracle, New York Times bestselling author of the Winnie Years and Wishing Day series
"The voice of a tween dealing with the pressures of adolescence is authentic, and this book will entice those who want to read about a relatable, funny young woman."--School Library Journal
"This breezy beach read is well-done."--Kirkus Reviews
