Susan Juby

Susan Juby, (author of the wonderful teen novels Alice, I Think, Miss Smithers, Alice MacLeod: Realist at Last, and Another Kind of Cowboy), has lately taken to giving out advice. And she gives good advice. Here's where to look for Ask a Juby.

And here's a sample:



Juby's new novel for fall is called Getting the Girl: A Guide to Private Investigation, Surveillance and Cookery.



I've just read an advance copy and would highly recommend it. Susan Juby seems to possess an eidetic memory of adolescent angst and just how painfully funny, and funnily painful it can be. In all of her novels she demonstrates an admirable way of writing about teen behaviours without either glamorizing them or averting her gaze. And she's funny - did I mention that?
