Michael Northrop

Michael Northrop is the New York Times bestselling author of Scholastic's new multi-platform series, TombQuest. His first young adult novel, Gentlemen, earned him a Publishers Weekly Flying Start citation, and his second, Trapped, was an Indie Next List selection. His first middle-grade novel, Plunked, was named one of the best children's books of the year by the New York Public Library and was selected for NPR's Backseat Book Club. He is originally from Salisbury, Connecticut, a small town in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains, where he mastered the arts of BB gun shooting, tree climbing, and field goal kicking with only moderate injuries. After graduating from NYU, he worked at Sports Illustrated Kids magazine for 12 years, the last five of those as baseball editor.

Paul Acampora
"Take one small town, add one big star, one baffled boy, and, of course, a giant cardboard unicorn, and you’ve got DANNY CONSTANTINO’S FIRST (AND MAYBE LAST?) DATE, a funny, charming tale of first love in the age of Insta-fame."
