• Books

    Although I have published short stories, poetry, picture books and novels for young readers, I am mostly known for my nonfiction books for children and teenagers.

    I am often asked if I write the books I do to show kids today how good they have it.

    I don’t.

    I hope that my work gives my readers courage — courage to question and to think critically about history; courage to consider and respond to their social, political, and existential responsibilities; and, most of all, courage to stand up.
