Barbara Dee

Barbara Dee began writing books for children after spending time as an English teacher, a (happy) stay-at-home mom, and a (less happy) lawyer. Her first book, Just Another Day in My Insanely Real Life, has been followed by several other beloved and critically acclaimed novels for middle-grade readers, including Solving Zoe, which was named a Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year, among other accolades. Her latest book, Halfway Normal, is about a girl hoping to reclaim her ordinary life following cancer treatment. Kirkus's starred review calls Halfway Normal "a powerful story not only about illness, but about accepting yourself for who you are."
