Hi there. I’m Lauren and I write books about doomed love, toxic friendship, and existential dread. My first novel, NOTHING LIKE YOU (Simon & Schuster, 2009), was an RWA RITA Award Finalist in two categories, Best First Book and YA Romance. My second novel, HER AND ME AND YOU (Simon & Schuster, 2010), was a 2012 ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers. 16 WAYS TO BREAK A HEART, my latest, was published by Katherine Tegen Books (HarperCollins) this July. German, Italian, French, and Turkish editions will be published later this year (2017).
