Ginger Rue

Ginger Rue's first young-adult novel, Brand-New Emily, drew from her experiences teaching middle school English and interviewing celebrities as a magazine writer. Kirkus Reviews said of the book, "besides having something pertinent to say about kindness, hubris and the perils of popularity, Rue also imparts insight into how celebrities are designed and marketed. But like any good sales campaign, the material is so enjoyable that readers might not even notice that they’ve learned something.” Brand-New Emily was a Scholastic Book Club pick. Booklist called Ginger's second novel, Jump, "humorous and engaging" going on to state that it "captures the high school scene." Ginger was the advice columnist for Sweet 16 magazine and has written for Girls’ Life, Teen Vogue, and Seventeen magazines, among others. She lives in the South with her two lovely daughters.
