Ah, one of my all-time favorite authors. In her Witch Baby and Weetzie Bat books, her language sang and flowed like magic. I see from her site that I have missed some of her more recent titles. I’ll have to add them to my overlong reading list.

Homepage for the author of the wildly popular Princess Diaries series. I was surprised to find out that Meg Cabot also writes under the name Jenny Carroll, another popular YA series author. Very useful information when trying to lead kids to more books they would enjoy.
