The book has been critically lauded, hailed by the New York TImes as exquisite.
Andrea grew up shuffled around between such disparate locales as Nebraska, Brasilia, Texas, Rio De Janiero, Baltimore, North Dakota, California, Wisconsin and North Carolina.

She then earned her Masters in Fine Arts degree from UC-San Diego. 
Currently, Andrea is in the midst of the negotiating the movie option for BURY THIS, as well as writing her fourth book, part of a two-book deal with HarperCollins. Her third book, ANATOMY OF A MISFIT, will be out in September 2014. She lives in Los Angeles and is represented by  Josie Freedman at ICM and Katie Shea at Donald Maass Literary Agency.
