Alyson Gerber wore a back brace for scoliosis from the age of eleven to thirteen, an experience that led directly to BRACED.
She received her MFA in Writing for Children from the New School, and before that she taught elementary and middle school students in a supplementary education program. She lives with her husband in Brooklyn, New York.
Alyson’s next two middle grade novels will be published by Scholastic in Fall 2018 and 2019! Check back soon for more details.
