(? - ) US author of Young Adult tales set in the contemporary world, at least one of which, The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World (2019), is fantasy. She is of sf interest for Tell Me My Name (2021), which is set on a quasi-suburban Island near a Near Future Seattle struggling with social and political dysfunction as well as Climate Change. The story itself, involving complex interactions among teenagers, resonates uneasily with the larger picture. [JC]
