Tiffany Meyers

Tiffany Meyers, a widely published writer and journalist, provided editorial guidance throughout. She underscored the importance of maintaining a sense of freewheeling fun in the text–not in spite of but because of the complex themes in this book. She encouraged the use of language that respects our young readers’ intelligence. I appreciate her heartfelt commitment to the book, which she once described to me as a “dream project.” I’m grateful to all of my friends and family–more people than I have room to list here–who reacted to this idea with genuine enthusiasm. It served to reinforce my own dedication to getting that final draft done.
