About the Author
Kayvion Lewis is a young adult author of all things escapist and high-octane. A former youth services librarian, she's been working with young readers and kidlit since she was sixteen. When she's not writing, she's breaking out of escape rooms, jumping out of airplanes, and occasionally running away to mountain retreats to study kung fu. Though she's originally from Louisiana, and often visits her family in The Bahamas, these days you can find her in New York--at least until she takes off on her next adventure.
