Hi. I write books for all ages…about dust bowls and drownings, mermaids and fairies, spirits in the woods, flawed heroes and difficult love, growing older, and most of all the strange magic of real life. Thank you for visiting!
Midnight at the Electric
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Spanning from Maine to the Smoky Mountains to San Cristobal, Anderson's charming novel is part road-trip adventure, part maritime quest and part coming-of-age story.”
— Shelf Awareness, starred review
“This book captured me instantly on pegasus wings, and took me on the weirdest, funniest, most heart-breaking journey to literally the edge of the world. By the last page I was totally in awe.”
–MAGGIE THRASH, AUTHOR OF HONOR GIRL
“Gracie's sparkling narrative voice is funny, smart, and convincingly ingenuous...
An endearing narrator, a beguiling world that accommodates both mermaids and Pixy Stix, and a genuinely moving family story.”
“Anderson's latest is a bit off the wall, in the best way possible… [Gracie is] a winning combination of a narrator who guides readers through her marvelous and dangerous world...with us cheering her on. Highly recommended fantasy for ages 9-12.”
—INGRAM NEWS AND REVIEWS FOR THE YOUTH LIBRARIAN
“[Infused] with effervescent magic and harrowing adventure…Anderson leaves no stone unturned as she creates characters with zest and heart, as well as settings that encompass the best of all imaginary lands.”
