Alyson Gerber wore a back brace for scoliosis from the age of eleven to thirteen, an experience that led directly to her debut novel BRACED from Scholastic.
BRACED received three starred reviews, was a Junior Library Guild Selection, and has been nominated for the Oklahoma Library Association’s Sequoyah Book Award.
Alyson’s next middle grade novel FOCUSED, about a girl who is caught between her love of chess and her ADHD, will be in stores on March 26, 2019!
She is a graduate of The New School’s MFA in Writing for Children and lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and daughter.
