Your Favorite Teen Authors!

I figured why should I keep my favorite teen authors' blogs all to here's a list of the best and the greatest (but by no means comprehensive--go here for one that is closer to complete). Please feel free to comment if you have another one to add to the list, but these are my favorites (and ones that I found in the process of making this list, so we'll hope those are good too). Sadly, they do not all have RSS feeds, so usually the ones that don't...well, I forget about.

Being Nikki by Meg Cabot

Okay, so I'm a teen author blog junkie. I have all my favorite authors in my blog reader. And I've been denied access to this for the last week or so (due to some filtering issues). Anyways in case you don't scour all the blogs out there that I do....Meg Cabot is currently in the process of revising the sequel to Airhead, which I reviewed many months ago and loved. Here's a sneak peek at the cover and plot.

Things aren’t pretty for Emerson Watts.

Em was sure there couldn’t be anything worse than being a brainiac trapped in the body of a teenaged supermodel.

But it turned out she was wrong. Because that supermodel could turn out to have a mother who’s gone mysteriously missing, a brother who’s shown up on her doorstep demanding answers, a former best friend who’s intent on destroying Stark Enterprises to avenge the death of his lost love, and a British heartthrob who’s written a song about her that’s topping the charts.

How can Em balance all that with school, runway shows, and weekend jaunts to St. John - especially when she’s got ex-boyfriends crawling out of the woodwork who want more than just a photo op; a sister who is headed to the high school cheerleading championships; a company she represents that seems to be turning to the dark side…not to mention trying to convince the love of her life that models aren’t really airheads after all…especially one model in particular.

But then, nobody said it was going to be easy being Nikki.
