About the Author

Emily Lockhart

E. Lockhart has had nine official boyfriends, if you count the boy who asked her to go out with him at a seventh-grade dance and then basically never talked to her again. In a drawer somewhere, she's got a list of every boy she ever kissed. She has never been on a sports teams of any kind and got excused from gym class by going to ballet lessons. She has a tattoo, cuts her own hair, and has worn the same perfume since high school (Kiehl's Chinese Flowers). In her office are Betty and Veronica dolls, a photo of a particularly fat bulldog, an official business card from 'Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective' and the 1920s flapper dress she wore to the prom.
