Her pioneering 2002 first novel, BORN CONFUSED, was named an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults and became a landmark work, recently hailed by both Rolling Stone Magazine and Entertainment Weekly as one of the greatest YA novels of all time (on lists including such classics as To Kill a Mockingbird, The Catcher in the Rye, and Little Women).

Her first album, WHEN WE WERE TWINS (songs based on Born Confused) was featured in Wired Magazine for being the first ever 'booktrack.'
