KATHERINE WEBBER is a young-adult and children's author. Her debut YA novel was the critically acclaimed Wing Jones. Katherine loves books and travel. (At last count, she'd been to 48 countries and six continents!) She was born in Southern California and spent much of her childhood in the Palm Springs desert and it is still one of her favorite places in the world. She has since lived in Hong Kong, Hawaii, and Atlanta. She currently lives in London with her husband, Kevin Tsang, with whom she co-writes the young illustrated fiction series Sam Wu is Not Afraid. Katherine studied comparative literature at the UC Davis, and Chinese literature and language at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She has worked at an international translation company, a technology start-up, and a reading charity. She spends far too much time on Twitter, so she invites you to come say hello: @kwebberwrites.

But I loved every second of it. * booksfemme * It's a very bittersweet story and it's also one of the few books that made me cry so much I had to stop for a moment and wipe away the tears at 4am. [...] This has become one of my favourite books and every time I think about it, my heart smiles. * thegalwholivesofbooks * [Webber] has a real talent for creating nuanced teenage characters * The Bookseller *
