Lauren Miller's debut was Parallel, which Seventeen Magazine called “crazy addictive." Her second novel, Free to Fall, appeared on YALSA's Best Fiction for Young Adults reading list in 2015 and is currently being developed into an episodic series for StyleHaul. Her latest, All Things New, deals with the teenage experience of anxiety. Lauren was raised in Georgia and is a Southern girl at heart, but now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three kids.
Seventeen-year-old Jessa Gray has always felt broken inside, but she’s gotten very good at hiding it. No one at school knows about the panic attacks, the therapy that didn't help, the meds that haven’t worked. But when a severe accident leaves her with a brain injury and noticeable scars, Jessa’s efforts to convince the world that she’s okay finally crumble—now she looks as shattered as she feels.
“[Jessa’s] immediate chemistry with Marshall has an addictive, electric quality that’s reminiscent of Augustus and Hazel’s in John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars…an often potent story about confronting the future and featuring an engaging central relationship.” - Kirkus Reviews
