After her remarkable debut, Gabrielle Zevin has crafted an imaginative second novel all about love and second chances.
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
Gabrielle Zevin's first young adult novel, Elsewhere, was an ALA Notable Book and a Quill Book Award nominee. She is also the author of books for adults including The Hole We're In and Margarettown, and of the screenplay for Conversations with Other Women, which received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. Of her writing, The New York Times Book Review said, "Zevin's touch is marvelously light even as she considers profundities." A dog lover and Harvard graduate, she lives in New York City.
