E Lockhart

USA flag

E. Lockhart is the author of a number of teen novels. She has had nine official boyfriends, if you count the boy who asked her to go with him at a 7th grade dance and then basically never talked to her again. She has never been on a sports team of any kind and got excused from gym class by going to ballet lessons. She has a tattoo, cuts her own hair, and has worn the same perfume since high school (Kiehl's Chinese Flowers). In her office are two Betty & Veronica dolls, a photo of a particularly fat bull dog, an official business card from Sherlock Holmes, Consulting Detective, and the 1920s flapper dress she wore to the prom.

Genres: Young Adult Fiction, Young Adult Romance

The Leaving (2016)
Tara Altebrando
"You will not sleep, check your phone or even breathe once you begin reading The Leaving. I promise, you will not even look up from the page."
Replica (2016)
(Replica , book 1)
Lauren Oliver

My Sister Rosa (2016)
Justine Larbalestier
"Larbalestier at her tricky, terrifying best."
All the Dirty Parts (2017)
Daniel Handler
"I loved ALL THE DIRTY PARTS. Super dirty! And great for arguing about. True and complicated, funny and voicey."
Truly Devious (2018)
(Truly Devious, book 1)
Maureen Johnson
"Maureen Johnson has a totally original mind, a passionate set of moral convictions, an extraordinary sense of bravery and ridiculousness, and she writes pretty sentences. Read whatever she writes."
Providence (2018)
Caroline Kepnes
"An artist, a mutated vigilante, a charming hunter, a sickly detective, and a literary lunatic: Caroline Kepnes brings them together in this propulsive and original story. It kept me up at night, scared and thinking."
Little White Lies (2018)
(Debutantes , book 1)
Jennifer Lynn Barnes
"A comedy of manners and a blackmail thriller tied together in a perfect silk bow."
The Girl Least Likely (2021)
Katy Loutzenhiser
"A rom-com with six extra helpings of riotous comedy, The Girl Least Likely has so many laughs your actual day will be brighter for reading it."
We Are Inevitable (2021)
Gayle Forman
"No one writes about love like Gayle Forman. Lose yourself in her passionate mash note to rock music, indie bookstores and best of all, the miracles that can happen when you take chances on other people."
The Chandler Legacies (2022)
Abdi Nazemian
"Nazemian writes from the fascinating perspective of being both insider and outsider to elite boarding school culture, and the novel pops with startling, painful details of hazing rituals and abuses of power. His world is inclusive but also brutal, celebratory and still interrogatory. Readers will want to debate this one long into the night."
