(1978-    ) US author of Young Adult fiction whose first series, the Chasing Yesterday sequence beginning with Awakening (2007), follows the attempts to recover herself of a young woman who awakens with Amnesia in an apocalyptic ruin. Trying to recover from a similar state of Identity loss, the young protagonist of the Skinned/Cold Awakening sequence beginning with Skinned (2008; vt Frozen 2009) finds herself in an artificial body after her own has been destroyed; the Near Future world she must adapt to is Dystopian, though unusually for this genre it is the City where the poor live, with the rich living in country mansions. Her relationship to her new body is like an operator to its Mecha, but her focus turns to relationships with her male peers. Wasserman's singletons are horror. [JC]
