Since then she has written several more critically acclaimed young adult novels, earning more honors, including the National Book Award for True Believer, as well as the Golden Kite Award for Fiction and the Jane Addams Book Award for Children’s Books that Build Peace.
Her books include Make Lemonade, The Mozart Season, This Full House and Bat 6. She lives in Oregon, USA.
Helen Simpson, from Heron's English Department, said:
"These are beautiful, moving and clever books. The children will gain an enormous amount from meeting the author and getting some insights from her."
